Take the Train to Concerts in Irvine

May - September, 2018

Ride with Us to Concerts at the FivePoint Amphitheatre

UPDATE: As of August 5, 2018, we have canceled special return service after the concerts from Irvine to Los Angeles for the remainder of the 2018 season due to low demand. We will review options for the 2019 season, which may include service to select shows. Riders traveling from stations south of Irvine can still take the train with our regular Pacific Surfliner schedule. Read on to learn more.

The Pacific Surfliner directly serves FivePoint Amphitheatre, It’s an easy five-minute walk from the FivePoint Amphitheatre (though ticketed passengers should allow at least 10 minutes to get to the station.) The train will not wait for late passengers.

Concert attendees can take any regular Pacific Surfliner train from stations south of Irvine, as far as downtown San Diego, to the FivePoint Amphitheatre. The venue opens one hour before scheduled showtimes. See concert schedules and train schedules below. Book your trip here.

Save with our "Buy One, Get One Free Companion Fare" offer for Pacific Surfliner travel to select concerts. Learn more below. TIP: Present your valid Pacific Surfliner ticket at the gate and receive complimentary Fast Lane access, which allows for expedited entry to the venue.

    From the Train to the Concert in Five Minutes

    Once you get off the train, you’ll be at the FivePoint Amphitheatre in no time! There is a dedicated walkway for train riders along Platform 1 (the side furthest from the station building). If you arrived from a station located north of Irvine, cross the pedestrian bridge and follow the signs to the walkway entrance. If you arrived from a station located south of Irvine, simply make your way along the platform to reach the walkway! The walk takes only 5 minutes. On the way home, you’ll depart from the opposite platform from which you arrived.
