So I guess this is as close as the band wants to get to LA. Can't really blame them. It is LA after all.

    Planning on making this my only show this summer.

    If the Eagles play football that night, however, I probably won't even make it to this one.

    Trading LA for Fresno is NOT an upgrade.

    This will probably be a tougher ticket then most years, as there are no LA or Hollywood shows, and it is on a Sunday so people in the Valley & LA can make it down easier. I hope my WH tix are as good as usual.

    Well I will be there.

    Is this venue any good?

    It is a good venue. It shares a parking lot with a water park. There are three ways to access the parking area as well. Down side, strict 11 pm curfew and the cops can be a tad overzealous in the parking lot/tailgate area.

    Sounds good except for the bit about the cops.

    The key with the cops is not give them any reason to stop and check in. Use plastic cups, no glass, keep the alcohol out of sight, no open flames, don't be smoking out. Common sense stuff really.

    If you play by the rules, then there is really nothing to be worried about. Don't play by the rules, and be prepared to pay the price. Remember this is Irvine. One of the safest cities in America.

    First trip to Southern Cali.
    Looking forward to checking out some new venues.

    Hope the setlists will be treated more like a two-night stand,
    as these venues are so close to one another.

    A Water Park eh.... Any discount for Concert-goers?

    Re: ***Official Irvine 2009 Tour Thread***

    Don't want to burst your bubble about the two-night stand thought, but Chula and Irvine in the past have been treated as solo shows. With Irvine being the de-facto 'LA show' and this being an album tour, I would prepare for 2 very similar shows. At least that is what I am doing.

    As for the water park, not sure about any discounts. Best case, since the venue and water park share a parking lot, you can skip having to pay to park for the show if you go to the water park.

    Still figuring out if I can make this show. I may be going to business school which would hurt my chances of going.

    Don't think I will be making this show. I have seen waaaay to many shows at this venue, and I am sick of it.
    If I may add though, if you are requesting tickets, DO NOT GET LAWN. The lawn is el horrible.
    If I go to a show in Cali, it will most likely be Chula or Fresno. Fresno is definitely NOT an upgrade. I know CSFresno got a lot of votes for the attblueroom.com college vote show, but other than that, Fresno is a podunk town.

    I agree and the reason I will not be going to Chula.

    Irvine is my only summer show and I REALLY hope the Eagles don't have the Sunday Night game on that day.

    I'm upset my credit card still has a "processing" status, rather than a "confirmed"

    I think tomorrow we will find out. Confirmations go up the day before the public on-sale.

    Re: ***Official Irvine 2009 Tour Thread***

    Has anyone else noticed that the price for premier parking has doubled from $20 to $40 since they last played here 2 years ago? In the past I was willing to pay the $20 to be able to get in and out fast, but $40 is just downright offensive! There's no way in hell I'm paying $40 dollars to park to see a show I already payed $170 ( 2 tickets +fees) to see in the first place. Thanks for the slap in the face LiveNation.

    I didn't even realize they decided not to play l.a. - that's a bummer for about 40,000 people.

    I grew up with irvine as my home venue - love this place. As a kid before we could get into shows we used to goto the end of lake forest drive and walk in the bushes into all these secret bush caves - we would have a fire and listen to the entire show reverb. off the hills. love this place - can't believe no l.a.

    I'm looking for a single if anyone ends up having an extra keep me in mind!

    Even though this is being used as the "LA Show", I think this one is going to sell out.

    Yeah, when u approach the main entrance to irvine meadows(verizon wireless) the road splits to the left and right. To the right is regular parking which is free with your ticket purchase and to the left is premier parking. The advantage(to me at least) for premier parking is that it is closer to the main gate which equals a short walk before the show and quick exit after the show. I've waited to exit after the show for more than an hour in the main lot in the past, whereas I've never waited more than 3 or 4 minutes to exit from the premiere lot. That may sound like bitching but if you have to work the next morning after the show the time saved is golden.

    I echo the above post. With this being a Sunday show, might be $40 well spent.

    This is my home venue as well. Grew up in San Clemente, lived in Foothill Ranch and Aliso Viejo, live in Orange now. Never missed a show here in all the time the band has been hitting the venue. I am sure our paths have crossed more then once in the hallowed grounds of Irvine Meadows.
