Los Angeles Live Music Venues

Los Angeles music venues make the city a standout on the world stage for live shows and concerts. Whether you want to rock, feel like dancing or just want to sway under the stars, the live music venues in LA make it easy to experience an exciting audio escape. From large arenas and iconic concert halls to open-air venues and low-key lounges, Los Angeles live shows will give you something to scream about. LA live music venues are outfitted with killer sound systems, and often feature high-value visual components, gourmet food selections and surprise performances. Many say that you haven't lived until you've experienced a show at Griffith Park's Greek Theatre or the legendary Hollywood Bowl, an outdoor amphitheatre nestled beneath the famous sign. Downtown you'll find Club Nokia for big events and the Staples Center for massive ones, along with the highbrow scene at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The East Side is home to a huge number of LA music venues, from the sister clubs of the Echo and Echoplex to the hipster dive The Satellite. Head west for live shows and concerts at LA's art deco theatres, The Wiltern and the El Rey, or visit West Hollywood's Sunset Strip for a classic performance at the House of Blues.
