The San Manuel Amphitheater (originally Glen Helen Pavilion and formerly Blockbuster Pavilion and Hyundai Pavilion) is a 65,000 capacity amphitheater, located in the hills of Glen Helen Regional Park, in the city of San Bernardino, California.

It is the largest outdoor amphitheater in the United States.[1] The orchestra, box, and loge sections seat a combined 10,902 people, while the lawn section seats 54,098. It was constructed in 1982, when Steve Wozniak & The Unuson Corporation completely reformed the land to have a site to put on the 1982 US Festival.

The amphitheater's concert season begins in April and ends in November, for the winter season.

The amphitheater has played host to many music festivals, including Anger Management Tour, Area Festival, Battle of San Bernardino Festival, Crüe Fest, Crüe Fest 2, Family Values Tour, Gigantour, H.O.R.D.E. Festival, Identity Festival, KROQ LA Invasion Festival, Mayhem Festival, Ozzfest, Projekt Revolution, Rock & Roll Blowout Festival, Rock the Bells Festival and Smokeout Music Festival.

Tina Turner performed during her What's Love? Tour on September 15, 1993, the show was recorded and released as a live album, entitled What's Love...? Live.

On July 11, 2008, the San Manuel Indian Casino announced that it has acquired a long-term agreement to the naming rights of the amphitheater. Since then, all upcoming concerts are now announced as playing at the San Manuel Amphitheater.
