Once again known as Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre, as it was when it opened in 1981, this large outdoor venue in Irvine, Orange County, features traditional theater seating up front and lawn seating on the hill overlooking the amphitheater. It's currently the home of the Pacific Symphony and the annual site of the KROQ Weenie Roast. Performers who've played here include Michael Jackson, Social Distortion, Ozzy Osbourne and the Offspring.
