Hollywood Bowl ticket prices to go up

October 26, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
It will soon cost you a little more to see your favorite artists perform at the Hollywood Bowl. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved a $1 to $3 increase in the cost of most Hollywood Bowl tickets for the 2011 season.

The higher ticket prices, requested by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, are expected to generate an additional $27,000 annually. The money will go to the association, which leases the Bowl, and will be added to a fund for capital improvements, equipment and supplies for the amphitheater.

Officials said the higher ticket prices will help accommodate increased production, labor, marketing and artists' costs.
