Hollywood Bowl Cancels Entire Season
HOLLYWOOD BOWL CANCELS ENTIRE 2020 SEASON OVER COVID-19 CONCERNS
(CNN) – There won’t be any picnics under the stars while listening to the symphony in Hollywood this summer.
The Hollywood Bowl is canceling its entire 2020 season because of coronavirus concerns.
The famed amphitheater seats more than 17,000 people and hosts about 110 concerts each summer.
This is the first time in 98 years the venue has canceled an entire season, though it did close for twelve days in 1951 due to a financial crisis.
Nearby outdoor venue ‘The Ford’ is also not opening this season.
The L.A. Philharmonic Association, which operates both venues says the 2021 season will bring centennial celebrations for them.
