One of my favorite places in Los Angeles is the Orpheum Theatre!
For the last few years, I’ve been a pretty frequent concert goer, and I love finding new places to see my favorite artists live. Last year, I was lucky to get a couple of Maroon 5 (one of my all time favorites) tickets for a small show at the Orpheum Theatre! I hadn’t ever heard of the venue before, and I decided to take my roommate.
Turns out, the Orpheum is only about a 10 minute drive from USC- we left at 6:30 for a 7 pm concert and still had time to look at merchandise before the show started! It’s a pretty small theater- sits about 2,000 people. This makes for a very intimate concert. No matter where you sit, you have a great view of the performer! And, the theatre has great acoustics, so the sound always sounds great!
We liked it so much, we actually returned a few weeks ago for a Jack Johnson concert! It was even better than I remembered.
Although I love some of LA’s more popular venues, such as the Hollywood Bowl or Palladium, I am so glad that I discovered the Orpheum. It’s so close to USC, and the parking is a lot easier and cheaper than the larger venues. Finally, it’s just a great venue to see any artist perform! I really hope I get to see more artists perform there!
