The Greek Theatre - Los Angeles, CA

One of Los Angeles’ most historic entertainment venues, the Greek Theatre – Los Angeles is an award-winning outdoor theater where music lovers can enjoy live concerts under the glittering stars right in the heart of the City of Angels. The land where it stands was donated by Colonel Griffith J. Griffith, a Welsh-American industrialist and philanthropist, who bequeathed a million dollars for the construction of the Greek Theatre and the Griffith Observatory. The design of the building was inspired by Greek theater models.

There are a number of off-site parking lots near the theater. Visitors can also park remotely at the Griffith Park Pony Rides lot where a shuttle service is provided continuously two hours before show time. The last shuttle departs 30 minutes after the show.

No outside food or drinks are allowed. Coolers are not allowed inside the venue. Small, non-professional still cameras may be brought into the venue, but professional cameras with lenses longer than two inches, and video and audio recording equipment are prohibited.

Since opening in 1929, the theater has served as a venue for world-class entertainment from the biggest names in the music world such as Sting, Alicia Keys, Pearl Jam, Santana, Tina Turner, Elton John, and Paul Simon, just to name a few. The theater’s intimate concert setting, state-of-the-art acoustics, and excellent sight lines are the prime reasons why its 5,900-seating capacity is always filled up by fans. The Greek Theatre – L.A. has been named North America’s Best Small Outdoor Venue multiple times by Pollstar Magazine. Concert season runs late April through October. Event Tickets Center offers a wide selection of Greek Theater – Los Angeles tickets to choose from.
