OK, who are you excited to see? Send me a comment and let me know. It’s a great lineup. But, dang, now I can’t get “Mr. Roboto” out of my head!


  1. I would be excited to see the band WAR, if this really was the band WAR. Sadly, it’s nothing but a COVER band for it’s OWNER, Jerry Goldstein, so he can profit off the fame of the WAR name, while fooling WAR fans and promoters that he is legit. All the while, the 4 surviving and original members of WAR, now known as THE LOWRIDER BAND, are being forgotten for all the WAR music THEY created because this COVER band is using THEIR STOLEN name of WAR. Don’t be fooled anymore WAR fans and promoters as to where the REAL SOUND of WAR is, which is with the four original artists of WAR, THE LOWRIDER BAND.

  2. Last year we bought tickets for Selena Gomez and we had assigned seat numbers on the tickets, but when we arrived at the concert, they said that we were to sit anywhere in the box that we were assigned to but not in those specific seats. Will it be that way again. We have miranda cosgrove tickets, box 1, row g seats 7-8. I want to know so that we can go into the concert early if necessary. Last year we did not and were in the worst seats in our box.

  3. I have a question about the concerts. Last year we bought tickets and they had section # row # and seat # on them. But when we arrived at the concert, they told us to sit anywhere in the section, but not in those specific seats. Is that the way it will be again this year? I just want to know so that we can arrive early if necessary. Last year we thought it was assigned seating and didn’t worry about getting in too early and ended up with crappy seats in our section. Thanks

  4. Janie – thanks for your question. My colleague Maggie Diaz, who is in charge of concert credentials, would know more about what you’re asking. You can reach her at 909-865-4307.

  5. This line is weak….Del Mar Fair & the concerts @ the races arre way better than these act!

  6. REALLY Looking forward to Sunday, Sept. 11 – Xtreme Muzik The Tour starring Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson with special guest Cowboy Troy. I bought box seats, and am seeing above that I won’t necessarily have the seats we were assigned? Will I have to be in that line I have seen in past years a few hours before the show to get my seats? This is my first concert there and I bought the seats thinking I would not have to get there super early.

    • Hi Kim!
      I’m not sure I completely understand your question. If you purchased box seats they are yours and assigned. You can pick up your tickets at Will Call before the concert beginning at 4pm. The Will Call line is at the Grandstand is generally much shorter than the the line for general admission tickets (which is probably the longer line you’ve seen).

  7. Just have two quick questions… Where is the roselane located for the free tickets? and how many free tickets can I get?
