Had a blast while in Pasadena. Went to Beyoncé & Jay Z concert and it was A W E S O M E... Hardly no traffic because we arrived early. However, after the concert traffic was a nightmare.

I did attend a Rose Bowl Gabe here many years ago- parked far away and walked in From more recent reviews, parking beside being a rip off is still nightmarish Come on- figure this out to make it slightly more pleasantly

A great concert arena besides being a stadium. Easy to access and a good place to hangout before the event you’re attending.

Is the perfect place for concerts, every chair has a good view and you can enjoy the concert close or far.
