THE SIMPSONS take the Hollywood Bowl! Saturday night in Hollywood.
25th Anniversary Celebration! – 3 Nights at the Hollywood Bowl Sept 12, 13 & 14, 2014
A SOLD OUT SHOW means terrible traffic if you’re going to the Hollywood Bowl, or if you’re unfortunate and get caught in the mess on the 101 freeway, Cahuenga, Highland, Franklin or Hollywood Boulevard before or after the performance.
We got a late start, usually we like to arrive very early, and so it took 30 minutes from the Highland freeway offramp and cost $18 to finally park in the very full stacked parking lot.
It was definitely a PARTY CROWD! There was excitement in the air! People came to have a good time and I wasn’t the only one stuck in traffic, so there were a lot of people hurrying for their seats at 7:45pm.
The Hollywood Bowl was decorated for the event! Inflatable donuts, the Duff Blimp, and a Giant Inflatable Three-Eyed Fish photo op greeted guests in the courtyard area! The ticket takers were wearing Sideshow Bob hair-hats. Cutout characters, an “Evolution of Homer” mural and a Simpsons Couch photo op lined the hillside as you entered.
Inflatable Donuts everywhere! Going in the ticket gate.
Cutouts and Fun Stuff decorating the Hollywood Bowl!
Have your picture taken on the couch with The Simpsons! (but the line was too long)
“Evolution of Homer” Mural!
Get out the vaseline! Hollywood Bowl prices:
$ 4.00 plus tax for a Dasani Bottled Water. Really?
This is a great sign! And they mean it too.
Saturday was a warm summer night in September, (we’re having a serious heatwave) and just perfect weather for an evening concert! The decorations and ambient entertainment really created a sense of event and added to the excitement as the crowd headed for their seats at 8pm.
