The weather was Cool. No matter what the weather is when you leave home, bring a light jacket to put on during the concert.. I wore Jeans and a t shirt, shoes. Unless you are extremely warm blooded, DO NOT wear shorts or sandals. .

Parking at the OC Fair - the VIP parking tickets were further away than where I parked for $10 (about 1/4 of the VIP price). Even with the hot and humid July days a cool evening breeze blew through the amphitheater and most of us put on light jackets into the performance.

STOP talking and playing with your cell phone during a concert. It's VERY RUDE to the people around trying to enjoy the music they paid to hear!
