10,000 Maniacs Live

Sep 18, 2019

Rain or Shine! Don’t miss the epic summer concert series that combines live music with panoramic ocean views on the aquarium’s stunning Tide Pool Plaza.

10,000 MANIACS
With 8 Billboard charting songs — including “Because the Night,” “Trouble Me,” and “These are the Days” — 10,000 Maniacs has covered plenty of ground in its 35-plus years, from cult-herodom to international stardom, to their current status as a cornerstone alternative band. But the sound and spirit of 10,000 Maniacs remains consistent.

Purchase tickets, VIP Experience, or season passes at 858.534.7336 or online at aquarium.ucsd.edu. All concerts are 21 and up.
