Paul Simon LIVE at the Hollywood Bowl!
A warm Summer Wednesday evening and we’re off to Hollywood and the Hollywood Bowl! Traffic wasn’t too bad until we reached the Highland exit off the 101 freeway. They still haven’t figured out how to move traffic in and out of the Hollywood Bowl without a 20 minute wait!
We planned ahead and arrived early enough, paid $25 to stack park in Lot B, walked up the hill to the cheaper “nosebleed” seats in section S ($52.50 + fees), and ate our picnic dinner (from home) BEFORE the opening act hit the stage at 8pm.
On The Menu: Subway sandwich (oven roasted chicken), dill pickles, carrots & celery, blueberries & raspberries, chocolate chip cookie and a bottled water.
No Cans or Bottles allowed for this concert so they can charge RIPOFF PRICES:
$10-14 for a beer and $16 for a plastic glass of wine!
NOTE: People were still just coming in at 9pm for a show with a start time of 7:30pm. It’s a real problem for the people seated on the benches because there’s no room to walk by someone who’s seated. It’s really annoying when someone arrives late and disrupts the performance for everyone seated behind them. Also it’s just RUDE to arrive late!
Paul Simon didn’t take the stage until 9pm! So there was a lot of sitting and waiting between the Opening Act and the start of the concert…
We Periscoped from the concert and posted our videos on YouTube:
“50 Ways To Leave Your Lover”, “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes”>”You Can Call Me Al”, “Graceland” and “Sound of Silence”. You can watch them here or on our YouTube Channel: The JoshWillTravel AdventureScope (see the link at the bottom of this Blog)
He played until 11pm. It was a good show! The sound was great, and even though we were so far away that we’re still not sure how many people were in the band, we enjoyed it.
We know we are very blessed to be able to enjoy live music at the Hollywood Bowl!
