The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA, is known for hosting some of the best musical acts representing myriad genres and countries. This summer, the lineup looks to be more robust than ever. Not only will you have the chance to see beloved favorites like The Cure and Diana Ross, but also lesser known acts like Star Trek Live and Silk Road Ensemble. Fortunately, thanks to Razorgator, you never have to choose. We have you covered with tickets to all of your must-see shows at the Hollywood Bowl this summer. Here are some of the musicians and shows we can’t wait to see in the coming months.

June Highlights

While they’re not technically performing in June, we can’t wait to see The Cure kick off summer in Los Angeles on May 22, 23, and 24. They may be a product of the 1980s, but hits like “Friday I’m In Love” and “Lovesong” continue to resonate with glam rockers today. Some of the other shows you have to see in June are Paul Simon on June 1, Andrea Bocelli on June 5, and Steely Dan on June 18. Ticket prices and seats vary, so secure yours now!

July Highlights

Moving deeper into the summer, one of the shows you won’t want to miss is Star Trek Live. This is an event best experienced in person, so buy your tickets to the July 8 and 9 festivities now. Tickets to the July 8 showing are currently available for as little as $33. You’ll also want to catch Brian Wilson on July 10, Diana Ross on July 15 and 16, and Sting on July 17 and 18. In fact, you can see Sting alongside Peter Gabriel at select performances!

August Highlights

As the summer winds down, the magic continues at the Hollywood Bowl. You can catch Ben Harper on August 19, Brandi Carlisle on August 20, and Culture Club on August 26 and 27.

Holy Holy and The Man Who Sold the World

holy holy tickets

Let me start by saying that I’m a huge David Bowie fan. Bowie songs are the soundtrack of my youth because he was always playing on my dad’s record player.  I’ve been fortunate enough to see him perform live five times; including once with his side project Tin Machine.

As you can imagine, I was excited to hear about the Holy Holy show taking place on April 26, 2016 at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. Holy Holy takes its name from the David Bowie song originally released in 1971. The band includes an incredible line up featuring last surviving member of Spider From Mars, Woody Woodmansey, longtime Bowie producer, Tony Visconti, Heaven 17’s lead vocalist, Glenn Gregory, and guitarist, James Stevenson of Gene Loves Jezebel.

The show opened with “The Width of a Circle” and continued through the entire Man Who Sold The World album. I never thought I would hear these songs live and during the show, I was transported to my childhood; sitting in my living room and looking at an album cover with a strange man in a dress. I remember my dad telling me that David Bowie would say it was a man’s dress.

After completing The Man Who Sold the World, the group began a set of long-time favorites including, “Five Years”, “Moonage Daydream”, “Life on Mars?”, “Time”, a beautiful melody of “Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud” / “All the Young Dudes” / “Oh! You Pretty Things”, and “Suffragette City”.  This perfect 21-song set list was full of glam rock guitar, with Glenn Gregory nailing each song.  Gregory was a rock god on stage, never trying to be Bowie, and making each song his own.  Having never seen Heaven 17 in concert, this show left me hoping that the band would tour the US so that I could have the chance.

Holy Holy still has performances scheduled in San Francisco, Portland and Canada.  If you live in these areas, don’t miss this show!
