The Pacific Amphitheater is located in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California, on the same grounds as the Orange County Fair. The amphitheater first opened its doors in July 1983, and Barry Manilow was the venue's first performer. Due to the noise from the amphitheater and complaints from the surrounding residents, however, the Pacific Amphitheater closed its doors in the early 1990s. The venue reopened in 2003 after an agreement with local residents to play concerts only in conjunction with the Orange County Fair. Famous musicians such as Ziggy Marley, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan and Faith Hill have played at the venue.
