Hollywood Bowl Cancels Summer Concert Season”

Los Angeles' legendary Hollywood Bowl has been a staple in the summer months - hosting some of the biggest acts in the country - however, for the first time since its opening in 1992, the Bowl announced the cancellation of its 2020 concert season due to coronavirus. In addition, the season at the Ford has been canceled, as well. This includes all performances from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, scheduled from June 6 to September 26.

It is the first time in 98 years there won't be a summer concert season at the celebrated venue, which opened in 1922.

Andrea Bocelli, Bob Dylan and Diana Ross were among the artists scheduled to perform this summer. The ditched season is additionally gon na abuse the L.A. Phil's profits ... the band claims it's encountering an $80 million budget plan deficiency. To mitigate these losses, the LA Phil must now take additional steps to address the financial impact caused by the pandemic and is furloughing approximately 25% of its full-time non-union workforce, as well as the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra through September 30, 2020, and is laying off seasonal Hollywood Bowl employees.

Prior to this, LA Phil had already laid off all of its part-time employees and cut wages by 35 percent across the board.

Ticketholders can use the credit for a future LA Phil-produced concert at the Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall, or The Ford; or request a refund. We are doing what is necessary to make sure that we are all here for the next century.

The famous open-air California venue has hosted acts from the Beatles to Yo-Yo Ma over almost a century, and its concerts from June through September are a staple of Los Angeles cultural life. With The Hollywood Bowl, which seats 40,000 people, it'd be possible to put on any shows this summer. "We have every reason to look ahead with hope and confidence to next summer's centennial celebrations at the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford".

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association made the decision to silence the Hollywood Bowl, citing the inability to hold its iconic events in a continuing environment of COVID-19 public health restrictions barring large gatherings. "It's deeply saddening to acknowledge that the 2020 summer season is gone, but the LA Phil isn't going anywhere".
