Tickets for Live Events in California
California, from a culture and entertainment perspective, is nothing short of a world juggernaut. From Hollywood to the San Francisco Bay and beyond, it has been the entertainment industry's epicenter for over a century. In contemporary times, arrays of live shows across the state are among the best and most comprehensive you'll find anywhere. And with 20 professional sports league franchises, California is also a dream destination for any sports fan.
Virtually every city in California boasts cultural, entertainment and sports treasures. Los Angeles, with its Hollywood heritage and second-largest-city status, offers packed calendars of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, STAPLES Center, Greek Theatre and many more. Catch world-class theater music, comedy and sports action at Dodger Stadium, the Rose Bowl and the two-time Olympics-hosting L.A. Memorial Coliseum. San Diego boasts the Padres, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Opera and the renowned La Jolla Playhouse.
San Francisco's live entertainment offerings include seeing the Giants or 49ers play, catching a show by the city's symphony orchestra, opera or ballet companies, or paying homage to the rock 'n' roll greats of the '60s at the Fillmore.
