About San Diego Concerts

San Diego is a regular stop for famous artists on tour through the west coast, and many of San Diego’s neighborhoods have a rich cultural and artistic history. If you’re in town looking for live music, you’ll have quite a few options.

The largest venue in the area, the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre, is located in nearby Chula Vista (about a 25 minute drive on I-205 N). The amphitheater’s location was previously a dairy farm and an industrial park. The Spice Girls performed the first sold-out show at the amphitheater in 1998. The venue shares the area with the Aquatica San Diego Waterpark. About half of the venue’s 20,000 capacity is allotted to general admission/lawn spaces, and actual seats make up the other half. Thanks to San Diego’s warm climate, the venue is open through most of spring, summer, and fall. 

If you’d rather stay in town, The Observatory is a popular music spot in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood, known as a trendy area with a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and nightclubs. The Observatory (also called the North Park Theater) accommodates up to 1100 guests and can be scaled down to a 550-capacity configuration for more intimate shows.

The famous House of Blues franchise also operates a location in San Diego. The House of Blues restaurant features live music on most nights of the week.
