This was my first summer pops concert. My friend and I were both really disappointed with the total experience. Having never been to this venue it was rather difficult to figure out just where to go. Parked in the Convention Center and the parking attendant was an idiot and directed us out to the front of the center. Had to walk around the building, taking elevators and steps. By the time we finally got around to where the concert was (we could see it off in a distance) it had started. Missed the first three songs but did see them on the giant screen and could hear very well. Got to our cabaret seating (plastic seats were comfy and big)--so was the girls hair in front of me. Watched most of the concert on the big screen as it was hard to see through her hair. And then just when things were rolling good..the Beatles tribute band announced the show was over! I and my friend were shocked to say the least. They performed an hour! Didn't even have an intermission. I'm still shocked when I think of the time and money it took to get there for one hour!!! Next time I think I'll just stand on the sidewalk and listen. I did enjoy the symphony accompanying the tribute band, although I have heard better tribute bands. And my final comment....I did enjoy the fireworks and the location was beautiful.
The Lawn section is grass, no reserved seating. Bring a blanket or your own folding chair, as there are none to rent.
Summer Pops concerts are given outdoors on San Diego Bay, so the temperature tends to drop after sundown, and the wind can pick up as well. Concertgoers are advised to dress comfortably, warmly and in layers.
