ConcertBank Adds the Greek Theatre to Its List of Must-See Venues

Concertbank.com has just announced its latest addition to its wildly popular concert venue series. The Greek Theatre is the latest venue to take its spot on the much acclaimed list.


Concert Bank, an online ticket retailer that specializes in hard to find tickets and sold out shows, has just announced the latest addition to their much anticipated concert venue series. The Greek Theatre is the latest venue to take its place on the talked about list, and there are plenty of good reasons for its addition. For starters, there is a full line up of spectacular events scheduled to take place this year at the critically acclaimed venue. For example, the venue is set to play host to the likes of Culture Club, Of Monsters and Men, and Jackson Browne in a jam-packed couple of months from now until October.


Located in Griffith Park, the venue first opened its doors in 1929 with an open-air seating capacity of 5,870. The venue was designed and modeled after a Greek temple, and music lovers who have attended shows at the venue express a sense of awe at how close they feel to the performers. The theatre is eclectic in its music concerts, and all genres have played there, from pop music to reggae to rock and roll. With its calendar for 2015 now complete critics are deeming The Greek to be one of the best venues to see a concert in this year.


One music lover who has seen concerts at the Greek says that he has always loved attending The Greek because of its lively atmosphere and general setup. “People just don’t find many venues like this, and with the great line up of artists playing there this year, it’s the place to be.”


John Morris, a venue critic stated that despite high ticket prices, fans can get up close and personal to the artists, which makes for a memorable and special occasion that isn’t offered at many other places. In addition to that, there is some spectacular history at this special venue which goes back to the early parts of the 20th century.


Because The Greek is an open-air venue, it closes earlier than venues that are based in buildings. The final month on the calendar for the Greek falls in October, with October 16 being the last show on the schedule before the venue shuts down for the winter season. The War on Drugs is the last act to play the venue before it takes its winter hiatus.


“We simply don’t expect there to be enough tickets to around this year for the events to be held at the Greek Theatre,” said a spokesman from Concert Bank. “And while we understand that some people won’t be able to attend a show at this wonderful venue, we made the decision to include it on our venue list. If people can’t get in to see a show this year, maybe they can begin to plan for the 2016 season at The Greek.”
