Nah, the source I used had the right capacity... For the lawn! Didn't use the total figure, did I!

I've seen a couple shows there, and I'd estimate max capacity - including a full lawn section - at about 16k. At most.

I'm going! Got the tickets yesterday with my usual "concert gang".

I've been there to many shows too, I don't even think it holds up to 16k, I think that's too much.

Anyways, weather is good and show is on sunday and I'm off monday 8) so it should be fun. Can't wait!

I'm expecting a dog on this one. I feel that five shows in CA was excessive...in either case the other four look to be great turnouts. I'm still hoping for a sellout (near) for The Forum.

I wouldn't put the Kibble in the bowl just yet. The show at this venue was a complete DOG on THE TOUR until show day.

I hear that bro, but still...that seating map looks awful. I think there's maybe 2,000 seats sold in the pavilion. As dare as the lawn, it's not even "light blue".

If I hear 7,500 for attendance I'd take it and run!

I'm all for being positive about walk ups because the tour so far has seen pretty good unofficial numbers.... but damn this does not look good. How many walk-ups can livenation expect ?

Blue Dots are available tickets

Yeah, same thing last stop here and I said that time around and will say it again, a lot of people wait until showday to buy tickets nowdays. I couldn't go to the Chula Vista show on The Tour but there was a picture on kissonline the next day with the band onstage and a packed crowd behind. I'm pretty confident the place will have a good crowd tomorrow. I got my tickets 8)

Great news Crown.

More and more pieces are falling into place backing up the theory of exorbitantly high prices in the pavilion are pushing an unusually high amount of people on to the lawn. For few of the upcoming shows the lawn appears to be completely sold out.

Something that stood out to me is that figure for Blink182: 19,602 attendees for a gross of $579,440 (unless that's not what that dollar figure is). That averages out to only $29.56 per ticket. Does anyone know more about this? Was it a special event? Does Blink182 always have low ticket prices? I did a quick internet search and didn't find anything special about that date. I'm just curious, really.

It's just what the market calls for friend. The average Blink fan might have been 27.8 years old in 2009. That makes a difference on what the audience can afford to spend. I know I have more now to spend on a KISS ticket than I could 20 years ago.

The sun is setting off in the west. There is a great breeze blowing and the place is filling up. It's a beautiful evening here in Southern California.

"Won't Get Fooled Again" is playing. Def Leppard is up in a few. Their entrance is cool. They play "Let it Go"!!! Love those first two Def Leppard records. :)

The solo in "Foolin" is a fine moment in early Mtv and hard rock! There are some areas that are not full but are slowly filling. The early reports about this being a "dog" turned out untrue. Great sized crowd in the lawn.
"Let's get rocked" is just awful.

Third show in a row that they've kept the same setlist. I really hope they change it up a little bit for the Los Angeles show on Tuesday. I saw them last night in Irvine, so I'd like to hear something different. I was really hoping to hear King of the Night Time World.
