You know you grew up in Phoenix if you attended a memorable rock concert at this deluxe, open-air venue. Even with general admission lawn seating, there was never—nor is there now—a bad seat in the place, because not one of the 4, 200 seats are further than 175 feet from the stage. And what a stage. Acoustically perfect, it’s played host to everyone from locals like the Mesa Symphony Orchestra and the Southwest Shakespeare Company to international acts like Roxy Music (which performed its farewell performance here in 1983) and Ben Folds Five. If live performance on a sloping green, grassy lawn under a starry sky is your idea of a good time, Mesa Amphitheatre is the place for you. As the saying goes, “4,200 people can’t be wrong!”
