Summer is here bringing with it longer days and an abundance of Hollywood outdoor concerts.
When you think of the top destination for live music in Southern California, there is one iconic venue that stands above all of the other amphitheaters in Hollywood. With the iconic silhouette of its famed band shell, The Hollywood Bowl has hosted every top act across all genres of music since its opening in 1922. This year, their slate of Hollywood outdoor concerts is just as ripe with talent. No matter your personal preference, from swinging crooners to pop legends to a leading man turning in his SAG card to hit the stage, we’ve rounded up some of the can’t-miss shows of the summer concert season:
Chrissie Hynde | Saturday, July 6 - The trailblazing lead singer of The Pretenders presents a world-premiere event, making her Hollywood Bowl debut to promote her new ‘jazz-dub’ album backed by a full orchestra. But fear not, your favorite Pretenders hits will be reimagined and mixed into the set list – truly the best of both worlds!
Tony Bennett | Wednesday, July 10 - His heart may have been left in San Francisco, but this living legend is bringing his talent to Los Angeles. With seven decades of repertoire, it will be a swinging night of jazzy joy underneath the Bowl.
Hugh Jackman | Friday, July 19 & Saturday, July 20 - The Man. The Music. The Show. Talk about a tagline that rings true as the star of the stage and the silver screen will be singing the hits from his variety of musical performances. From ‘The Boy From Oz’ to ‘Les Misérables,’ this former X-Man turned ‘Greatest Showman’ will be backed by a full orchestra and few special guest stars!
Lionel Richie | Monday, August 5 - There may be no ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ but you will be partying ‘All Night Long’ with this pop legend! Even better, this event is being performed under “House Rules”, meaning you can bring your own food and drink into the Bowl!
