Top 10 Concert Highlights From Gibson Amphitheatre
Yesterday's news that the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City will be closing in September was met with mixed reaction. Haters weren't too fond of the venue's location, (frankly who wanted to navigate through thousands of clueless tourists?) nor the ridiculous parking fees. But one thing that was undeniable is that the mid-sized venue had impeccable sound and was intimate enough to house arena to stadium level musicians in its 40 years. What makes it worse that the venue is shutting down to make way for a Harry Potter themed park. Oy vey.
Here are some of the most memorable musical moments in Gibson Amphitheatre history (well at least the ones that were caught on YouTube since Frank Sinatra's performance hasn't made on there yet):

10. The Gorillaz, 2010
Whenever the Damon Albarn-led group is in town to play a show, which isn't often, it's always a spectacle. No one has ever left a Gorillaz show disappointed, especially at a venue like this.
9. No Doubt, 2012
The group's six night stand at the venue proved to be one of the few times fans got to see them perform their new material in a live setting. All of the shows were sold out and with more new material on the way, No Doubt showed they could still bring it.
