This is the beginning of the concert season at Shoreline Amphitheatre and now is the perfect time to think about which shows you want to see. Here’s a link to the schedule at Shoreline Amphitheatre and keep in mind that periodically new shows are added, so check back later. If at all possible, you should try to get VIP box seats to the shows that you want to attend. Treat yourself to these awesome seats and you’ll never go back to the grass seats! Debbie Villa, Director of Premium Seat Sales, will find the perfect box seats for you, whether it’s just for a couple or a whole group. You’ll park in the premium area that is close to the doors, walk through the special VIP entrance, and relax in the VIP lounge area before the show. You’ll never have to stand in a long line and feel crowded. After you get to your box seats, you’ll have a server to bring you beer, burgers, whatever you want through the entire concert. It’s really the way to go. For premium seats call (650) 623-3048 or email DebbieVilla@LiveNation.com.
Did you know that residents of Mountain View are allowed to purchase tickets before the general public? It’s true. That’s just so nice of Shoreline to give us special treatment. To buy your tickets ahead of everyone else you’ll need to get a Resident Identification Card from the Box Office first. The Box Office issues the cards Monday through Friday from 10:00-5:00 and on resident ticket sale days from 12:00 to 2:00. Bring either a photo ID or a current utility bill such as PG&E, water or cable. Tickets usually go on sale on Sundays, but you’ll be able to purchase them on Saturday once you have your official Resident ID Card. For more information, call the Box Office at (650) 967-4040 or the Mountain View Resident Hotline at (650) 903-6605.
Shoreline Amphitheatre gives Mountain View residents free tickets to the July 4th show every year. There are only 2,000 of the free tickets, so don’t wait too long to claim them. The show this year is “Radio Disney and the City of Mountain View present San Francisco Symphony Orchestra: Hits through the Decades.” There is a huge fireworks display that goes along with the show and this is a big event every year. The streets in this part of town are packed with people waiting to see the fireworks. There are people sitting in lawn chairs, eating hotdogs and waving American flags everywhere you look. Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration…but my point is that everyone loves to watch the Fourth-of-July fireworks. For more information on how to get your free tickets, visit the city website.
