R&B rising star and phenom H.E.R. will be making her return to Los Angeles with two nights at the Hollywood Bowl alongside Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. Taking place on Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14 the concerts will mark H.E.R.’s first performance with a live orchestra. Tickets are on sale now and start at $21.
H.E.R. is coming off a spectacular five years that has seen the Grammy Award winning artist release three stellar albums, along with a string of songs that have become rallying cries for social issues like “Fight for You” (written for the film Judas and the Black Messiah) and “I Can’t Breathe” (written in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other victims of police brutality). Released just this year H.E.R.’s latest album Back of My Mind is filled with eye-catching collaborations — but it’s H.E.R.’s enrapturing and soothing mixture of R&B that fills the spaces between them.
Not to mention that H.E.R.’s ever affecting vocals, one second heartwrenching and the next a powerful stirring of self-love and strength, will find a sublime accompaniement in Dudamel and the LA Phil. Whenever an artist like this performs alongside a full orchestra, especially for the first time in their career, that’s a show you attend — especially at the Bowl!
