SoCal Concert at Honda Center

New venue, same old rules. Looks like Jimmy Buffet will be playing SoCal at a venue that doesn't allow tailgating. Oh, well. Another year in which I'll just stay home.

Re: Who's Going to Irvine 10/22

We will be closing out the Irvine Meadows era. Seeing my 16th show there. From what I've heard, lots will open at 3pm. Because the show will be a sellout, they will fill a dirt parking lot first before they use the paved main lot. You can see in the picture where the dirt lot is (not the best area ...

Re: Irvine Ca

Any chance they'll open the parking lot earlier than 4pm this year?

Re: Who's going to Irvine, October 24, 2015?

This is bad news. I skipped the Hollywood Bowl, which is 15 minutes from my house to go to Irvine, which is over an hour away, in order to tailgate. I was hoping to get there early and spend the day. This kinda blows. Bill Got a reply on Facebook from Irvine Meadows about opening time for the lot......

Re: Irvine, CA

Thanks for the info. Some of the other local Parrothead clubs have similar information. They seem like a reliable source. I just wish the concert would be listed on the Margaritaville tour schedule. But I'm optimistic. Looks like there will be tailgating in my future!

Irvine, CA

There are rumors out there that Jimmy will be performing at Verizon Wireless in Irvine. His other SoCal shows aren't very good for tailgating. How is Verizon Wireless? I really want to go to a show with great tailgating this year. Is Irvine the place?

Re: Hollywood Bowl, Cali (Oct 22nd)

Rich,

I agree that the Hollywood Bowl is a great venue. But tailgating is a big part of the experience for me.

This show isn't listed on his tour page. Anyone know where this information came from?

Re: Hollywood Bowl, Cali (Oct 22nd)

Irvine is great news!

Bill

Edit: Looks like a false alarm. It's not on his tour page. Also, He's playing Santa Barbara again this year. How many SoCal shows can there be?

Re: Hollywood Bowl, Cali (Oct 22nd)

Sadly, once again the SoCal show won't have tailgating. The Hollywood Bowl is a great venue for a concert, but half the fun is the tailgating. Very disappointing.

Re: Santa Barbara 10/16

I don't go to the Vegas shows for the same reason. I want the tailgate experience as well as the concert.

Re: Santa Barbara 10/16

This seems like the ultimate good news/bad news joke. I was so excited that Jimmy Buffet was going to do a show in SoCal and so disappointed that there would be no tailgating.

Well, there's always next year.

Re: Santa Barbara 10/16

That's too bad. If there's no tailgating then I probably won't be going. Very disappointing.

Santa Barbara 10/16

Now that the Santa Barbara show has been announced I gotta find out what the tailgating situation is at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Anyone have any information?
