Gwen Stefani to Perform at Hollywood Bowl Opening Night
Stefani will perform for the Hollywood Bowl’s opening night on Friday, June 3. LA Philharmonic’s Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, ballet dancer Roberto Bolle, saxophonist Branford Marsalis, and dance group Let It Happen will also perform.
The event will also feature marching bands from UCLA and USC, and the LA Philharmonic will perform a new fanfare by iconic movie composer John Williams, led by music director Gustavo Dudamel. The eventful night will close with a fireworks show.
Tickets for opening night are available now. The show starts at 8 p.m., with the gates opening at 6:30 p.m. VIP packages are available to purchase. All proceeds from the night benefit the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s learning and community programs.
The Hollywood Bowl has quite a few events lined up to celebrate its 100th anniversary, including a free weekend festival called 101 Fest. The festival will be held at the Hollywood Bowl June 11 and The Ford June 12.
Stefani Is a Southern California Native
Stefani is a great choice to headline the Hollywood Bowl’s milestone opening, because she’s a Southern California native. The No Doubt singer was born in Fullerton, California, which is located in Orange County. She was raised in nearby Anaheim, where Disneyland is located.
However, her relationship with fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton has led Stefani to branch out from her California girl image. She’s joined Shelton on country duets, and she even performed at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo this week.
In November of last year, Stefani finished up her Just a Girl Las Vegas residency after performing 57 shows since 2018. The star donated $185,000 of the ticket sales to the Cure 4 the Kids Foundation.
