Experience the greatest classic rock hits of all time like never before….with your Long Beach Symphony. A Night of Symphonic Rock featuring an all-star six-piece rock band playing rock anthems that will have you playing air guitar in the aisles.


The POPS! Series is a fun and friendly way to enjoy an entertaining night out. There are two ways to experience the POPS!—either at a table of 10 on the Arena floor or from the upstairs loge in a stadium-style seat.

The concert itself starts at 8:00 PM, but the doors open at 6:30 PM and people are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic dinner—along with your favorite libations—to enjoy before the show. If you can’t bring your own food and drink there are also concessions available at the Arena (pizza, sandwiches, full beverage service).
