Greek Theatre-Berkeley Tickets
The Greek Theatre in Berkeley is more than just an excellent concert venue. While it certainly does stage some of the world’s best musical acts, The Greek has also hosted important speeches from historical figures like Theodore Roosevelt and William Randolph Hearst. Hearst is actually responsible for the theatre’s existence, having paid for the construction that was finalized in 1903. The president of the University of California championed the project on behalf of the local university, and it now hosts concerts, the Berkeley Jazz Festival and numerous events for the students at UC Berkeley. Seating capacity is 8,500 and the venue was retrofit and expanded in 2012. With a rich history and a beautiful setting, The Greek Theatre is one of the best outdoor venues in California.
