The upcoming Hollywood Bowl season promises to be one of its most exciting yet! As you undoubtedly know, the Hollywood Bowl boasts an unparalleled history including appearances by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Judy Garland, Billie Holliday, Nat King Cole, Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, Beverly Sills, Marilyn Horne, Isaac Stern … the list goes on and on.
The 2017 slate of entertainment includes a wide variety of classical, pop, and rock music along with the annual Broadway presentation (Mamma Mia! starring Corbin Bleu and Lea DeLaria), and more! Special events will include Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert (three nights) and a one–night only presentation of Sondheim on Sondheim featuring a plethora of Broadway stars. Throughout the summer and fall, the LA Philharmonic will treat audiences to classical programs under the stars including Beethoven, Ravel, Stravinsky, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, and many others. The Bowl will also host evenings with Tony Bennett, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Diana Krall, Chris Botti, Herbie Hancock, Pink Martini, Blondie… and of course the traditional July 4th fireworks spectacular (this year featuring three-time Grammy Award-winner Pentatonix).
Hungry before the show or at intermission? Along with two full service restaurants, street food and snacks abound. Tacos, hot dogs, pizza, barbeque, burgers, rotisserie chicken, ice cream, popcorn — you just can’t beat it for a fabulous summer night out!
