This monstrous outdoor venue at the OC Fairgrounds is the official beacon of the summer concert season for those who frequent the OC Fair in Costa Mesa. After you’re done chomping down on a prehistoric turkey leg or a mouthwatering burger, the chance to watch some of the biggest names in pop and rock should not go unfulfilled. Especially since most of the ticket prices for these shos aren’t gonna break the bank. For the local music fan who might never spend money on a ticket to see Adam Lambert of Three Dog Night, the sole reason for the Pacific Amphitheater's existence is to welcome the return of bands who've gone out into the record industry wilderness and come back rockstars. And if you can pack that sucker, then by god, you've made it.
