  • I went there last Saturday for the UCLA Standford football game at 5pm. I decided to park at Parsons and take a shuttle to the stadium. We got to the parking lot at 3pm. There were signs on the street...  read more »
  • Enjoyed an amazing Coldplay concert. Beautiful stadium. However, like other people have mentioned, security was strict. I didn't mind it though, better to be safe than sorry with all the crazy things happening at concerts. Parking was 40 dollars, if you wait a bit for traffic to clear out it's not bad at all and you can leave easily and smoothly.
  • Went here for Coldplay concert. Venue was huge and it was easy to find our seats. The security checkpoints were quite terrible. People were getting frustrated and jumping over the steel fences to get in queue for the checkpoints. It was really difficult to get in and out of the stadium. Expect a lot of traffic during an event. The parking is expensive. Just take an Uber and have them drop you off half a mile away. Try to wear comfy shoes to walk there.
  • My first time been to this big stadium for Coldplay concert. Heavy security. Mind blown production design. They have this genius idea to take over the surrounding golf course as temporarily parking lot, which helps so much. When the concert is over, everyone get to their car and drive off within 5 mins. Tens of thousand cars, no traffic.
  • Cool stadium... Parking and travel is a nightmare! The city offers shuttle busses that run from Downtown Pasadena, which seemed like a greeat idea... however the the line that formed after the end of the ColdPlay concert took an hour to get through until we got on the bus. We could have easily walked to DT Pasadena from the rose bowl as it's just over a mile distance. Lesson learned.
  • Ouch, the seats hurt, especially if you're up in the nosebleed section with no seat backs! When you buy your tickets, make sure to check where you'll be sitting and bring a seat cushion, or a stadium chair with you! Also, the seats are a tight fit! I went to a concert, and they charged $40 for parking!!!! It was crazy! So, try to park by the train station and take the local bus - it drops you right by the stadium. The stadium is huge, and I like that it was easy to navigate in, and the attendants were helpful!
