About Oakland Concerts

Located on the east side of California’s San Francisco Bay, Oakland is a city of nearly half a million folks. With over 50 neighborhoods throughout the city, Oakland is a melting pot with a warm, sunny climate and a bustling tourist economy. What’s more, this city also has a lively music and concert scene for both locals and tourists to enjoy. Many famous artists have come out of Oakland as well. Legendary hip-hop artist MC Hammer and singer Keyshia Cole were both born in Oakland, CA. Punk rock band, Green Day, also has roots nearby Oakland and has been known to grace the city’s stages. In fact, February 19th was officially declared ‘Green Day Day’ in Oakland in 2016!
