Los Angeles' Greek Theatre named best small outdoor venue by Pollstar.

The Greek Theatre took a bow as the “Best Small Outdoor Venue of the Year” at the 23rd Annual Pollstar Awards, with the Hollywood Bowl hitting a high note as the country's "Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue."

An encore honor for both amphitheaters, this is the twelfth win for the 80-year-old Greek taking up woodland residence in Griffith Park's local greenery and the eighth consecutive win for the legendary Bowl.

Owned by the City of Los Angeles, the nestled 5,900-seat Greek Theatre is managed, operated and booked exclusively by LA-based firm Nederlander Concerts while the LA Phil's acoustically superior Hollywood Bowl has been the summer home of 18,000 expectant seats since 1922.

What's the best show you ever saw at the Hollywood Bowl or Greek Theatre?
