OC Weekly's Description

Verizon Wireless Amphitheater is a large stadium in Irvine, in what used to be Lion Country Safari. Los Angeles has the Hollywood Bowl. Orange County has Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. And when the Pacific Symphony Orchestra—one of the most distinguished in the country—perform there, it's a sight to see and a sound to hear. There's nothing like feeling the night breeze on your skin heightening your anticipation as the orchestra tune up. Even if you don't have any classical music on your iPod, it's hard not to be moved by this experience. Also, tickets in the nosebleeds are very reasonable, so you can make your date think you're a hoity-toity cultural elitist for cheap. It also stages the annual Weenie Roast, Fish Fest, and too many other awesome bands to note here. But go here while you can—this place is going to close in the next couple of years to make way for more apartments.
