The Hollywood Bowl is America’s largest amphitheater. It’s also a natural basin, with the Hollywood Hills and the city’s famous letter sign as a backdrop. The sloping rows with plain wooden benches can accommodate up to 18,000 music fans. In line with the casual American lifestyle, concertgoers like to bring a picnic along. Although stars from Frank Sinatra to Kylie Minogue have held legendary performances here, the shell-shaped stage is usually dedicated to classical music.
