Hollywood Bowl Summer Schedule 2013

One of our favorite summer pastimes is hitting up outdoor concerts, and the new season at the Hollywood Bowl is just about to begin with a music lineup sure to keep you busy. The Bowl is the largest natural outdoor amphitheater in the U.S., and one of the coolest…permitting it’s many guests to bring in wine, food, and even candles in some seats for its evening festivities. Start making your picnic supply list and prepare for many memorable nights to come.

The official opening night was this past weekend kicking off with their annual Hall of Fame Concert on Saturday June 22nd. Performers included Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Patti Austin, and John Legend backed, by the Hollywood Bowl’s orchestra and the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles. They will perform before being inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. The show washosted by Angela Bassett with guest presenters Darren Criss, Aresenio Hall, and Stevie Wonder, and concluded spectacularly with a fireworks show. Proceeds from this night benefited the LA Philharmonic. Night two on the following Sunday will host She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward), Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, and Matthew E White.

The rest of the 2013 schedule will include classical nights on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, jazz nights on Wednesday’s, the KCRW’s World Festival including Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros on August 4th and M83 with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestraand Phantogram on September 22nd, the weekend spectaculars (like The Blue Man Group, Willie Nelson, Chicago, and the Looney Tunes), an the Sunday sunset concerts. The Special Concerts series will include Josh Groban at the 4th of July Spectacular, shows with Earth Wind & Fire, the ABBA Fest with the tribute act Waterloo, and a classic Grease Sing-A-Long.

In addition to their many in house dining options, this year they are welcoming the opening of The Wine Bar, another al fresco dining option near the entrance of the bowl which will be serving small plates, beer, creative cocktails, and of course wine.
