Hollywood Bowl Tickets
The modern outdoor amphitheater found in the popular Hollywood area of Los Angeles, California. This outdoor amphitheater has been providing Hollywood residents with a unique outdoor performance viewing venue for decades, since it first opened in 1922. Throughout its long history, the Hollywood Bowl has had a number of notable performances and currently the largest natural outdoor amphitheater in the United States. This is all thanks to the massive seating capacity of 17,376 of the Hollywood Bowl.
This outdoor theater is primarily known for its beautiful backdrop which features a view of the Hollywood sign, and for its “band shell.” This shell is a distinct and unique set of archest that create an ideal acoustic setting for performances and give off a ‘bowl’ or ‘dome’ shaped appearance. The shells have actually gone under several reconstructions throughout the years to help improve the design of the bowl. The bowl is currently owned by the County of Los Angeles, and during 2003-2004 it underwent a massive remodeling to improve the acoustic design.
Currently the Hollywood Bowl hosts hundreds of concerts each and every year and also annually plays host to the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and in the summer the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The Hollywood Bowl also hosts an annual Fourth of July spectacular that features live music and fireworks for local residents. Annually, local residents can also attend the Playboy Jazz Festival which has been held at the bowl every year since 1979.
However, many will find their way to this massive amphitheater to see live performances from some of the biggest acts in modern music today. Big names such as Cher, Billie Holiday, Carrie Underwood, Elton John, Judy Garland and more have all toured and performed at this arena. The history of the Hollywood Bowl is also filled with performances from Fred Astaire and Mikhail Baryshnikov and the Beatles, who recorded a live album at the Hollywood Bowl. No matter what type of event you are looking to attend at this venue, there is no denying that there is nothing quite like seeing performances live in the largest amphitheater in the country, meaning any opportunity to view a show at the Hollywood Bowl will not want to be missed.
