Los Angeles, California
Over 17,000 fans flocked from around the country to witness the rock band Phish
perform their first concert at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl
amphitheater in the Hollywood hills of Los Angeles, California. The Hollywood Bowl has provided a showcase for the world’s greatest musicians. The Beatles – the first rock band to ever play the bowl
– performed in 1964 & 1965 which resulted in the live album “The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl” that was released in 1977. But despite what Paul McCartney says in his song “Rock Show” (“there’s rock & roll at the Hollywood Bowl!”), the fact is that most of the concerts at the world famous Bowl are of the classical variety. The Bowl is the home of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the host of hundreds of musical events each year. Over the years, the Bowl has seen concerts by the likes of The Doors (featured in the 1968 concert film, “The Doors Live at the Hollywood Bowl”), Bob Dylan, Elton John, Janis Joplin, Sting, Jimi Hendrix, the Monkees and many more!
