A More Intimate Concert Setting Than The Big Venues – I've seen plenty of concerts at the Gibson (formerly the Universal Amphitheater) over the years and I've never had a bad experience. Since I live in North LA County, the first plus is that I didn't have to drive for miles and miles to see a decent concert. It's second plus is that it's much more intimate than places like Staples Center or Honda Center (or the Forum and Sports Arena in decades past).

The seats all the way to the side of the either side of the stage aren't great and I'd rather not see the concert than sit there, but I am definitely planning to come to the Gibson in the next couple of months to catch a show.

good experience – I attended my first concert here (John Legend), and let me tell you, it was great!! The place isn't like a stadium, it seems more intimate than that, although it's still pretty big. The acoustics seemed good. I was sitting in the very back, pretty much, but i was still able to see John Legend, which was more than I could ask for. I'll definitely come back again.

The biggest bands in the world rock the top of a tiny hill. – In Short
Part of the Hollywood landscape for over twenty years, the amphitheater hosts virtually any live act large enough, or wild enough, to fill the stands. Alternating between a full-fledged music venue and a host of other formats, Universal is a chameleon among larger venues, hosting the occasional dance troupe or film festival. Festival crowds are also huge, considering that Universal hosts both the annual BB King's Blues Festival and the Latin-themed Watcha Festival.

Niceeeeeeeee` – The Universal Amphitheater is big enough to hold a decent crowd. And small enough for that intimate feel. It has easy access into the place and its basically hassle free. Also the food is pretty reasonably priced. No higher priced than your basic movie theater. The only price gauge is the parking which is $8 dollars. And when you go up there they hassle you if you want to get premier parking? For 5 more dollars! So 13 bucks to park an extra 5 feet? No thank you! The good thing about this Venue is that while you wait for the show to start you can spend and hour or two down at citywalk! The time will go by real quick as you shop the night away before a star studded performance to set the sky on fire! :)

First concert – I will always look fondly back and remeber this amphitheatre to be the home of my first concert. It was everthing i thought it would be and more. The sound was amazing and its huge! Since then i have been to other concerts and other amphitheatres but this one is and always will be my favorite. Also they always have a great venue list and sometimes if your lucky they have private vip partys that you can sneek a peek at and sometimes sneek in and get some free grub(or so i heard)

A Universal Treat – I'm not a fan of big concert venues, but I make an exception for this one. I've seen probably 20 or 30 shows here over the years, and I've never been disappointed ... well, once. Thompson Twins roundabout 1986. They let too many people into the pit and we couldn't see the stage, even though we had front row orchestra section seats.

The variety of acts they've booked is impressive also: everyone from Madonna on her first tour to Diana Ross to the KROQ X-mas. As you might expect, the cocktails are outrageously priced. Better to stop somewhere at Citywalk first. You'll still be paying a lot of money, but at least they'll be more atmosphere (I recommend the Hard Rock). Look out for skunks on your way in and out, especially during the summer. They make frequent appearances by the fountains.

Great sound and view! – I've seen a couple of shows at the amphitheatre and let me tell ya they all sounded amazing.

The Universal Amphitheatre is a huge studio with seats and a pit in the front. It sounds that good. In my opinion every artist should play the amphitheatre at least once.
