Located in a park/golf course in the middle of a residential area. If you have never been there before you might want to refer to this map and "drive" around the area so you don't make any mistakes like walk out of the closest bar fifteen minutes before lights out.

Hoping for shuttle service, and while it can get crowded getting back from the concert, it beats getting clogged up in traffic through residential neighborhoods with a million other cars. Based on Arroyo Seco Festival, the free shuttles were granted access to entrance/exits that were off limits to regular traffic. Shuttles were based at Parsons Corporation parking lot to the left of the Westin (see map above), but others have mentioned shuttle service based at Pasadena City College for other events.

The last concert I saw at the Rose Bowl was U2 in 2009. There were about 90,000 at that show. (The Bowl has since did some remodeling reducing their capacity).

I took a shuttle from the College and it worked out fine, although it took over an hour from the end of the show to get on board the bus to head back to the College.

@#$%& yeah, my birthplace (and Glendale Arizona falls on my birthday!)...

Have no idea where I'm going to sleep or where I'm going to park the car, but looking forward to this Stony bit of adventure :-)

if i go to LA i get a hotel by LAX. don't want to rent a car this time. can you take LA metro from around LAX up to pasadena? the metro maps kinda say yes, kinda say no. Time Out/LA is overselling the system a bit. easy trip? deadly?

I recommend a visit to the Santa Anita race track - They have a statue of Sea Biscuit. Very Historic and inspirational.

Not so easy.

If you want to rely on public transportation one option would be to take the Freeway Flyaway from LAX to Union Station downtown, find a hotel there (but be careful where) and take the Gold Line to Pasadena.

Deadly. By my estimate, you would have to take the Green Line and then the Blue Line through the worst parts of L.A. Then you would catch the Gold Line at Union Station after a quick ride on the Red Line. And then finish off with a bus ride. Depressing! Getting back will be twice as fun since evening services are sporadic. I often take the Green-Blue-Red combo to/from LAX and it's grim. But just $1.75. I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.

If you are dead-set on staying at the Airport (where accommodation isn't that cost-effective, btw), you might want to take the Flyaway bus from LAX to Union Station (it's about $12 or something), then embark on the 50-minute journey to the Rose Bowl via the Gold Line and #51 bus. But again, I don't know if you'll be able to get back humanely. You might want to consider staying downtown, at least. As I write this (Weds p.m.) an Uber from Union Station to the Rose Bowl is about $23.

Me, my wife and one friend planning to stay in LA from May 7 till next day of the concert May 12.Then we're planning to head to Las Vegas - Grand Canyon and after that to San Francisco for the Santa Clara concert.

No car in LA,probably a lot of walking,uber and public transportation.
We do like to see Hollywood, Beverly Hills, the beaches and more!
We are looking for a convenient place in La for someone to see all the sights and yet easy for transport to Rose Bowl

Cool. Since the Stones are a relatively small part of the equation there's not much merit in staying in Pasadena, which is a pleasant burg but far from the action, as you can see on a map. I would suggest looking at a base in Westwood, a clean and walkable UCLA suburb which is well-served by buses, esp. the Santa Monica blue bus that can get you to Venice/Santa Monica. The Getty, other museums and the best celeb cemetery are nearby, as is Beverly Hills, though I don't know anyone who has actually bought anything there! Another bus (the 2) gets you to Hollywood via the Sunset Strip. Show day, you might have to bite the bullet and get an Uber to Pasadena, at $50+ each way. Quite frankly, if there's 3 of you, Uber will be your best bet at all times.

thanks to both of you. didn't think it would be possible but saw a mention that oversold the LA subway system. like hotels by LAX cause it's easy to get over there and get outta town. been seeing the stones in california since bridges and want to keep the tradition alive. will have to come up with another plan. thanks again. by the way saw 'collateral'so......

6 hours and 8 minutes,
it says to drive from me to Pasadena.
Plus, I would be driving Sunday morning through Bakersfield.
If the Lord is always by my side,
how do I materlize at this show?

Depending on L.A. traffic, it could take you 6 hours and 8 minutes to get from Burbank to Pasadena - a mere 10 miles!

Another word of advice if you end up with seats in the stadium (not on the floor)

Sections in the end zone, I believe 8 thru 15 are benches with very little room and no seat backs.

A small price to pay for living in the SoCal paradise of warm beaches and plenty of sunshine!
And that's the reason it can get crowded around the L.A. area - everyone wants to either live or visit there!

No one in LA gets up early on weekends! If you can leave early you will be fine. I drove thru LA last Thursday for Thanksgiving and made it from San Diego to Thousand Oaks in 2.5 hours. It is all in the timing! We left at 6:45 am and arrived at 9:15, no traffic at all.

Waited 45 minutes and pulled 6 or 8 sets of 3 seats, but couldn't secure any of 'em before I had to go pick up my daughter from school...

Will keep checking and then try for the Radio presale tomorrow...

In the house - not the best, but not the worst, and at a reasonable price - sec. 6H row 30 at $147+.
My wife at 5'6" prefers to be off the floor, and in this case it worked out for me with a semi-cheap pair!
Looking now at available tix and there are several platinums in section 6L just a few seats seats away from us priced at over $500 each!
