Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal Studios in Los Angeles is closing in September (so says the LA Times) and will be torn down in favor the recently announced Harry Potter expansion to the theme park.

I'll miss the place a bit. With the City Walk near by, the indoor venue was a decent place to catch a larger show. Bands I've caught there that come immediately to mind: Iron Maiden and Queensryche.

Rush played there last year, I believe it was the smallest venue on their tour.

I've seen pictures of the place. It looks like it has great acoustics.
