The sound as always was great. We had good seats and were completely entertained with Don Henley's performance. His band is so amazingly talented and the 3 female vocalists were amazing. We love attending events here and can't wait until our next time.

The theater is located in a beautiful setting in the Berkeley Hills on the UC Campus. The seating area is extremely crowded and very uncomfortable. It is difficult to move, take a drink, access your camera and exit your seat. You must crawl over everyone...More
