Going to Irvine was always pretty challenging. Bad parking, long walk/hike to your seat but the acts were well worth it. Yes people were partying in the parking lot, yes the audience could get rowdy but so what it's rock in roll. Sad to see...More

This is my first time writing a negative review and I wouldn't do so except what I experienced at this venue last night was ridiculous. I bought tickets for my husband's all-time favorite band Dead and Company. It was his birthday gift. I spent $300...More

If not for the amazing performance of Rascal Flatts, this venue would get one star (terrible rating). This place is an absolute disaster at handling crowds and enforcing their own posted parking lot rules. There were copious amounts of drinking and a mile-long line to...More

Was there for Rascal Flatts. People drinking in the parking lot, cans and bottles everywhere. LONG line to get in. Security standing around not really monitoring the line. In fact, security gave permission to a group to cut in line in front of me. People...More

This place is great once you can actually get to your seat. They bring in great performers but they can't run the place. They don't coordinate well with the Irvine police and control of the traffic trying to get into this place. Three Irvine police...More

After we ordered tickets to a performance at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, I read all of these bad reviews about the place. We actually enjoyed our experience, but did learn from the reviews, to park outside of the facility. We parked across the street in...More

Enjoyed Brad Paisley as part of the Country Mega Ticket 2016. Will miss IMA for concerts but will definitely not miss the $14-16 beer or congestion in the bathrooms and parking lot.

Honestly, I'm glad they are tearing this place down. The sound quality here for concerts is really lousy. Depending on where you are sitting, the sound bounces all over the place and isn't consistent. One second all you hear is the singer, the next second...More

This is a great venue to see a concert. Great seats under the stars. Lots of food options and beverage vendors. Be prepared to walk a ways from the parking lot to the venue. Parking lot can be tough to get out of. Easy to...More

If there is, I am not sure it is an official one. This facility defines complete chaos. It is absolutely horrific getting in and out of the parking and there is no order at all. Good Luck.
