The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.

Attended the 2022 RRHOA. The bar/concession set ups were NOT prepared for the sold-out event and closed early with people still in line. The stage was too low for people seated in the middle of the first level unless they were standing up ($850 seats). The audio wasn’t ready for Duran Duran, who had to restart “Girls on Film.”LA Live area was great, but the Microsoft Theater was disappointing. We attended the 2021 RRHOA in Cleveland. It was a much better, highly organized venue. Not sure I’ll attend LA’s venue when it returns in a couple of years.

Cirque du Soleil "OVO" was performing at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater. The venue is easy to find, plenty of parking close by ($30 in parking structure). 7,700 seats are in the Theater, yet it ldoes not feel too crowded. The show was an amazing demonstration of acrobatics!

We had good seats. The sound could have been louder. We got there early and had beer and nachos (Great!). It was more a children's show.

Came here to see Ovo in March 2022 and the theater was really nice. They have garage parking available or you can park in a nearby lot. If you’re feeling particularly lucky, you can try searching for street parking, although be very careful about the street signs, as I saw other cars get ticketed for parking in anti-gridlock zone spaces at the wrong time.

The check-in process was a bit slow and disorganized, but I get why it needs to be done. They check your ID and proof vaccination, after which you go through the metal detector and then you get your tickets scanned. They have food and drinks for sale indoors, and the bathrooms are available immediately on the left of when you enter. There are cup holders in the seat, but if you’re tall, note that your knee may hit the one in front of you. The seats were otherwise pretty comfy and the acoustics were good.

There are three levels to this theater and lots of nice seating areas. We spent quite a lot of time sitting due to Stevie Wonder taking the stage an hour and a half after the show was supposed to start. And we did not buy any of the $15 drinks! But the safety protocols were well in place.

This theater is nice, intimate, and with good bars. What it needs is a lot of sofa on the side. Please make it a lounge. That gives the audience an option to go in to the show or relax outside. I could not stay there long enough to finish the show since my back and neck hurts too bad. If I could lie down for a while on a sofa, potentially I could stay there longer. People want to hang out, no necessarily listen to every song. Especially when it comes to an important event, so many beautiful people there, hang out is more interesting than most of the songs. I would like to hang out at outside, eat, mingle, people watch, and go in when my favorite artiest is on. People did not buy a ticket and drive there to watch, we are there to party. Please make it a party.

What a great venue to attend a concert the sound is awesome. The only thing that slows a person down is the security line where too many metal heads show up wearing too much metal. Its easy access to the restrooms and the bar to get your buzz on.

There was a group of us that attended the Jim Gaffigan show one evening during a convention. The theater is really nice, comfortable and has good sound quality. We were here previously when it was the Nokia theater and it continues to be a good place to see a relatively small show.
