L.A. has long been known and appreciated as a place to see some of the biggest recording artists perform live on stage for little, if any, cost. This happens most often during the dryer months when world-class artisans attract huge audiences to places such as the Hollywood Bowl, Ford Amphitheatre, Pershing Square, Hollywood & Highland, Santa Monica Pier, Marina del Rey and The Grove.
In the meantime, as these under-the-stars venues line up their musical series for the third quarter of the 2013 season, two of L.A.’s largest indoor structures have already booked some of the hottest Grammy-winning solo artists and history-making touring bands circling the globe.
With an upcoming calendar of musical events now locked and loaded, expect L.A. to welcome the new year with enough high drama, emotional edginess, soothing sensuality, sterling jazz, rhythmic funk, wholesome goodness and country sweetness to leave tongues wagging about this “Born this Way” metropolis for a mighty long time.
