OC Locals Want Their Amphitheater BACK in Irvine, CA!
For over 40 years, the City of Irvine has been the live music capital of the region with the best artists in the world coming to tour Irvine. But that could change this Valentine's Day if one Council Member has his way.
If you love live music, please please show up to the Irvine City Council on Valentine's Day, Feb 14 at 2 pm (1:30 to sign up as a speaker).
The address is:
1 Civic Center Plaza Irvine, CA 92606-5207
Wear your favorite band shirt, and encourage the Council to continue with the project for a 14,000-seat amphitheater in the Great Park. Irvine City Council has been supportive so far with 4-1 voting to bring back a large-scale venue.

If you can't make it to the meeting, please email the City Council and tell them why you want live music in Irvine,
A permanent Amphitheater for live music has been planned in Irvine since 2016 when Irvine Meadows closed and the locals have been waiting for its return ever since. The only no vote on the Council is a 40+ year career politician named Larry Agran, who is 78-years old. Larry gets his friends to complain about live music, even on nights when there are no shows playing.
The Great Park is vast open land, the amp will face a big balloon and the freeway (see pic). Polling shared at meetings show that residents and locals of the area are overwhelmingly supportive of the project.

The plan for a larger venue of 14,000 seats will continue to bring in world-class artists — like Dave Matthews, U2, and more — and anything smaller won't attract the biggest artists. A smaller venue will only compete with and ultimately kill the nearby Pacific Amphitheatre.
Joe Toback (Little Joe) of Breaking In A Sequence shares his love for live music!
