Previously the Universal Amphitheatre, the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal Citywalk is now a state-of-the-art indoor venue with a great track record.
Opened in 1972 as an outdoor venue, it saw legendary open-air performances by the likes of David Bowie, Elton John and Frank Sinatra. A decade on and Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa and Rod Stewart would perform beneath its new roof in a theatre truly built for amplified sound.
It also regularly plays host to high-profile awards shows and fundraisers.
With seats for more than 6,000 people, it is a testament to the designers that all sight-lines are excellent, the acoustics are superb and no seat is further than 150 feet away from the 70 foot stage.
If you’ll be in Los Angeles on 20 April for David’s 20th show from the ‘On An Island’ tour, have a fantastic time and do let us know how your night goes.
If you’ve been to this venue before, please share your thoughts with those who may be visiting for the first time so that they know what they can expect.
One thing you should note is that, if you’ll be visiting by car, you’ll have a ten-minute walk through Citywalk to reach the Gibson Amphitheatre, so please make sure you arrive early and give yourself plenty of time to find your seats.
Have you all seen the latest photographs in the Galleries? More coming soon.
David will be talking on Sirius Satellite Radio tomorrow at 3PM ET, so now’s the time to get yourself a free three-day pass. You want Channel 18, The Spectrum.
