It's a bad venue.
Michelle C. Jun 6, 2013
I use to come here for USC basketball games before they moved to the Galen Center a few years ago. The venue gets super hot. I don't think there is any ventilation in it. That's probably the biggest drawback about it besides the ridiculous $25 you have to pay to park in their lot. The concession stands are pretty ancient and the employees act like they don't want to work there. The faucets didn't work in the bathrooms and the soap dispensers had no soap inside them. The venue is just old. It opened in 1959 and hasn't been remodeled since! It's the type of place you should drive by to see rather then go inside. I'd really only go to if an event you really want to see is happening there and no where else. Not to mention it's in a pretty unsafe neighborhood.
A Bad Location for Great Concerts
Emily B. Mar 27, 2013
I have only been to the Coliseum once. It was the greatest concert of my life and the worst concert experience of my life. The traffic in the surrounding area (especially the freeway) is ghastly on days with major shows. People were getting out and walking and I saw several accidents. Parking is utterly impossible so as to make you grateful when you finally find a lot for the low fee of forty or fifty dollars. Still, I understand why it is the venue for so many major shows. While attendants are forced to climb rather steep steps, the capacity is massive. There is an excess of space for performing artists to do the most intense of sets and effects. I am sure that many monumental concerts have been held there, but I’m not sure if I would return. \
Bruce Springsteen concert
Sam A. Aug 11, 2012
Went to the Bruce Springsteen concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena a few months ago. It was a cool place to see a concert. Springsteen was awesome per usual. We had standing room only seats on the floor. We were able to get up pretty close to the stage. Parking at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena was actually relatively easy. It was cheap (only a few bucks) but we had to park in some lot which was about a quarter mile away from the arena. In terms of food, there was a great burrito shack right outside of the arena.
