I'm driving up from San Diego. I am curious, is alcohol legal in the parking lot? I was there for Snakes and I believe there were signs saying, NO ALCOHOL. Didn't stop us but I wanted to know if I need to go into stealth mode with the beers.  trink38.gif

Irvine parking lot sucks.  Stealth mode for sure, but be careful.  My last two visits there, I saw several folks get DUIs for sitting in their car with an open container (and of course they missed the show).  We were drinking beer from plastic cups and they made us pour it out.  And these are real cops, Irvine police in full garb..  and they are everywhere.

I finally got tickets, but they're WAY back in Terrace 9, on the right side. I'm stoked to be going to the show, but these are the worst seats I've ever had at this venue. Am I going to be able to see anything from back there?

Yeah, you'll see. but it is far back.

We're going too, but we're waiting until day of show to buy.  Money is tight!  Don't know where we'll wind up.

Hello RUSH fan-antics, Does anyone know if digital cameras (not cell phone) are allowed in Irvine Amp.

The tickets for Irvine state 'NO RECORDERS/VIDEO'. So that answers that question.

My experience with Irvine security in the past hasn't been good, in that they are all over cameras, cell phones, and alcohol in the parking lot.

Great venue, great acoustics, beautiful setting...but the security is way too enthusiastic here....

So the answer is no Digital Cameras, and they watch you like a hawk

That is just WRONG. It's like they act like it is illegal.  Oh wait it is so you can pay $9 for a beer inside and the city gets some revenue. That's WRONG!!

I don't think I will risk drinking in the parking lot. If my memory serves me well, on the last tour (Snakes) the cops were all over the place and giving the drinkers a hard time.

My hotel is only 1.7 miles away, I'll take a taxi or walk (with an adult beverage) and won't be stressed out about illegally drinking in the parking lot.

I'll get to the venue early and have a couple high dollar drinks in my seats.

A 2 mile walk back to the hotel, after a RUSH show, half drunk, is gravy.

  smile.gif it's just over two weeks for this show and I am pumped coming all the way from Australia and seeing the show from the second row. I will probably be taking my camera and will just see what happens. I am looking forward to meeting RUSHGODDESS who will be driving up from San Diego and will be my "OTHER HALF' for the night. 2.gif  trink39.gif

the only safe time u can drink in the parking lot is when the OC cops are ransacking someone's car. you can pound for like 30 minutes when they do that.

I'm there! Can't wait...

Can I recommend Santa Monica instead of Venice Beach? Venice Beach isn't what it used to be....lot of drug addicts and scummy people.....and not much to see
