What to Expect at a Pops Series Concert
Pops Series at the Long Beach Arena
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 theater-style seat.
The concert itself starts at 8:00 PM, but the doors open at 6:30 PM for picnicking — patrons are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic dinner and your favorite libations! If you can’t bring your own food and drink there are also concessions available at the Arena (sandwiches, snacks, full beverage service). Non-factory sealed beverages are prohibited from the Long Beach Arena. For a full list of prohibited items click here. Catering options are also available.
It’s a great place to network, visit friends, or make new ones. The orchestra presents mostly familiar tunes, with an emphasis on popular classics of all genres—classic rock, jazz, Broadway, light classics, and features talented guest artists. Each show is unique, but we guarantee that each will be enjoyable!
The audience is quiet and respectful while the orchestra is playing, but it’s generally a pretty easy-going environment in which you don’t have to feel quite so formal. Just make sure you have a safe trip home!
