    To anyone worried about traffic:

    Easy remedy for this folks. Being a local, I don't let this info out too often. Here is a quick way to get to the show and avoid all the traffic.

    Head down the 5 South to the 905 East. Take it until you get to some traffic lights, about 4-5 miles. Turn left at Heritage Rd. (there will be a traffic light at Heritage). Make your first left, it will look like you are going into junk yard row. Hang the first right (only way the street goes) and this street will bring you up from the south side of the amphitheatre. As well, it will put you closest to the tailgate area as well. Just hang the first left into the venue and then another left into the parking lot, and then one more left to take you to the tailgate.

    Sounds difficult but it is real easy. No traffic, except the few locals that know about the "back way".

    Map to the tailgate is in my signature below.

    Hope to see y'all there, peace!

    I was looking at this on Google Maps, couldn't I just stay on Heritage Rd the whole way and then make a left on the first Entertainment Circle?

    You can but you end up going through all of junkyard row and the other way is easier. Lotsa people trying to find the junkyard they are looking for. I have just found it to be easier hanging that left. But you'll still make it going the other way.

    Happy Day Chula!

    Got confirmed for lawn which is what I wanted. Since this the hometown show, a bunch of us tend to go and lawn it up. But I'm excited for the Ants tailgate too!

    Well I'm sure I will make the tailgate. Might be the only show I can afford this year. The tailgate is kick-ass at this place.

    Never been to Chula before. Originally from the Chicago area and live in the Phoenix area now. Most of my experiences are at Alpine. Any comparisons to be made? Just trying to get a feel of what it will be like. Got reserved pavilion. Pumped for this!

    Well, Alpine is a huge venue and Chula is a cookie cutter amphitheater. Almost 20,000 people in a decent setting and the band has shown a lot of love over the years to the venue, but the last couple have been rocky for some reason. Great tailgate with a lot of Ants showing up every year. There is a link to find it in my signature below. Make sure and come out for the tailgate, look forward to meeting you.

    Peace, Adam

    Hey, i live in San Diego now (for the last 4 years, moved from Chicago). Having been to 100 shows all over the US, I can tell you Chula Vista is def not one of the better venues. Since you've lived in chicago I can tell you it compares to the world (verizon) amphitheater, but with better overall sound. The tailgating is decent though, less strict than other venues. The one problem is that Chula Vista is near the border of mexico and thus you have to drive quite a distance (From SD) to see the show. Also, can get pretty cool at night since out in desert like conditions. Should still be epic as it will be close to end of the tour!!

    sure was easy to get pit tickets today with the pre-sale, I wish Irvine had better chances of getting decent seats, but I didn't want to sit that far back
