It’s so sad to say goodbye to Irvine Meadows Amphitheater--closing at the end of this month. Many thanks to the grassroots movement called “Save Live Music Irvine” that brought attention to Irvine Meadows closing and built momentum for a new venue in Irvine.
Now, we hear that FivePoint, along with Live Nation Entertainment would like to build a 12,000-seat outdoor music amphitheater adjacent to the Orange County Great Park with hopes of opening in time for the 2017 summer season.
The interim amphitheater, pending approval by the City of Irvine, would be located less than two miles from Irvine Meadows.
The City of Irvine’s master plan for the Great Park proposes for an outdoor amphitheater in the “cultural terrace” portion of the park on city land. Yet, no final decisions have been made.
“Live outdoor music is so important culturally and economically for Irvine and the region,” said Irvine City Councilmember Christina Shea. “Having a facility of this size and quality in the heart of this city is a big win for us and all of Orange County. I want to thank FivePoint and Live Nation for partnering on this project. I can’t wait to see the interim amphitheater finished and continue the important discussions about putting a permanent amphitheater in the Great Park.”
Gwen Stefani, an OC native, will be the last performer at Irvine Meadows on Oct. 29-30.
