Located on the grounds of the sprawling Griffith Park, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles has remained a model outdoor venue since its construction in the late 1920s. The amphitheater has hosted numerous legendary performers in the past, and in 2014, "The Greek" will keep its storied history alive by hosting Alt-J on October 20. Read through the venue guide below for important information about the upcoming concert at the Greek Theatre.
Greek Theatre Los Angeles Seating Information
Seating at the Greek Theatre is partitioned into seven areas. Closest to the stage is the pit area, which offers a left, right, and center section if it is comprised of reserved seating. Otherwise, the pit area may be a general admission section as per the performer's preference. The next three sections (A, B, and C) move further away from the stage, and all offer reserved seating in left, right, and center divisions. Immediately following Section C is an area of bench seating. The final two sections, the North Terrace (NT) and South Terrace (ST), are situated on either side of Sections A and B.
At certain performances, VIP box suites may also be available. These seats typically offer access to the VIP deck, but it is advisable to click the "Notes" section on the listings for Alt-J to verify what may be included in the particular seats you wish to purchase.
