For 15 years, the House of Blues at Downtown Disney has entertained millions of people, with performances from great artists such as John Lee Hooker, Foo Fighters, Etta James, Justin Timberlake, B.B King, Fallout Boy, and Willie Nelson. The House of Blues in Downtown Disney opened in January 12, 2001 but closed on May 31, 2016 because the management deemed it better to move to a location with a much bigger space. The new location, which opened last November at Anaheim GardenWalk is twice as big as the old location and has over a total of 40,000 plus square footage.

  • It has a bigger space.

The much bigger space in the new location has a music hall has a 2,200 capacity and 3 other sections, namely, The Parish, the new Foundation Room, and the Restaurant.
