Hollywood Bowl Schedule 2016

The Hollywood Bowl Schedule 2016 is just about finalized, and it looks like a doozy! Weekend Spectaculars include Diana Ross, Weird Al Yankovic and Culture Club. Classical nights include Mozart, Beethoven and the ever-popular Tchaikovsky fireworks. KCRW’s got a bunch of World bands we are not nearly cool enough to have heard of. And there are a load of great looking Lease Events on the calendar! One night each of Andrea Bocelli, Black Sabbath, Janet Jackson and Dixie Chicks, two nights of Sting and Peter Gabriel (on the same bill!) and David Gilmour, three nights of The Cure. Does the Hollywood Bowl really need THREE nights of The Cure? Apparently so! Of course you can count on the July 4th Spectacular to be something special. 2016 features Chicago! Stay tuned for the rest of the Hollywood Bowl Schedule 2016 as events are announced!

Hollywood Bowl Schedule 2015

The Hollywood Bowl schedule 2015 is already shaping up, and it is looking great! Perennial favorites like the Playboy Jazz Festival and the 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular are back. New traditions such as the Sound of Music Sing-a-Long return as well. If you just can’t wait until the 2015 Hollywood Bowl Opening Night on June 20, you can get your fix ahead of time with Lease Events including Lana Del Rey, Neil Diamond and the highly anticipated Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett tour. Did we mention that Smokey Robinson is the July 4th 2015 special guest performer? Ooh, baby baby!

Hollywood Bowl Schedule 2014

As usual, the Hollywood Bowl Upcoming Events for 2014 are an eclectic mix, sure to please every palate. Dig dance music? Check out Robyn and Royksopp. Jonesing for some Jazz? Get your fix from Eliane Elias or Gregory Porter. If you are all about star power, you can’t get much bigger than John Legend or Gladys Knight. Classical music fans will be pleased to see that besides the usual Tchaikovsky and Vivaldi greatest hits, some Mozart deep cuts will be performed by the estimable LA Phil. Of course, we’ve always been partial to the Hollywood Bowl Weekend Spectaculars. No matter which of the Hollywood Bowl Upcoming Events you choose, whether you go to see Hair, Elvis Costello, John Williams or the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Beatles at the Bowl, prepare to leave your chosen Hollywood Bowl concert with a big ol’ smile on your face.
