Pechanga Arena hosts a very wide variety of events year-round. It has consistently been rated one of the best arenas seating 10–15,000 fans at the state, national, and global level. If you like sports, Pechanga Arena is home to the San Diego Gulls (AHL), the San Diego Sockers (MASL), and the San Diego Seals (NLL). If music is more your style, Pechanga Arena offers concerts in every popular genre and has hosted iconic bands such as The Who, System of a Down, Slayer, and KISS, among many others over its storied history. The arena also hosts family-friendly shows that will please all ages.
Before you go, it is important to know that, like any large venue, there is significant security, so be prepared to only be allowed to carry in clear bags and to go through metal detectors before entry. In addition, video cameras are not allowed inside the arena. No matter your preference, whether its sports, music or a show, you are likely to find something that you will enjoy and remember for years to come when you visit Pechanga Arena.
