Gwen Stefani performed to a packed audience for the closing night of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater on August 29, 2016 and August 30, 2016 at 7:30 PM PDT.

“Tonight is the last night we will ever experience this beautiful, amazing place of music together. I am so honored to be from Orange County — and I feel like you are actually my homies,” said Stefani while performing.

“Gwen Stefani took the Irvine Meadows stage Sunday night as the concert venue’s final performer, 26 years after her band, “No Doubt”, first played there as an opening act for reggae artist Ziggy Marley,” stated ocregister.com.

“With a set list that featured her solo hits like the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Hollaback Girl” and “Wind It Up,” fans got to feast on songs from all three of her albums, including her latest release, This Is What the Truth Feels Like. Stefani even included No Doubt hit songs like “Don’t Speak,” “Underneath It All” and “Hella Good,” just to name a few,” stated billboard.com.

The concert not only consisted of having “Young the Giant” performing, but both Eve and Blake Shelton made a special appearance. The rapper, Eve, performed “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” and “Rich Girl” with Stefani. Blake Shelton, country singer and Stefani’s boyfriend, performed with Stefani as well billboard.com.

Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, which is now closed because the Irvine Companie’s Los Olivos apartments will begin the second phrase of their building, was formerly Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. It is located in Irvine, CA.  “Built in the 1980’s it was later opened in 1981 and has a huge seating capacity of 16,085,” stated irvineamp.com. Seating included five sections. Starting closest to the stage is a pit area, orchestra, loge, terrace, and lawn.

“As well the outdoor events, the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre has hosted some of the biggest musical artists on the planet, including Michael Jackson who performed three times and Ozzy Osbourne who recorded his 1982 tour outing at the amphitheatre,” added irvineamp.com.

The Pacific Symphony Orchestra has also used the Amphitheater during the summer since 1997.

    I think it is so cool that Michael Jackson performed there 3 times. I never knew that.
