Gwen Stefani to headline opening night at Hollywood Bowl

The Los Angeles Philharmonic has announced Gwen Stefani as the headliner for the Hollywood Bowl‘s opening night of the 2022 season. Gwen Stefani will headline the annual Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, June 3. The celebration will also included the LA Phil led by Gustavo Dudamel, the LA Phil’s YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) and special performances from ballet dancer Roberto Bolle, award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis and dancing sisters Let It Happen. Also, a historic first will be members of both the UCLA Bruin and USC Trojan Marching Bands.


The opening night at the Hollywood Bowl will kick off with the world premiere of a new fanfare for orchestra, performed by the LA Phil, created as a gift to mark the Bowl’s centennial by composer John Williams — and of course there will be the Bowl’s iconic fireworks display. This special event benefits the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s learning and community programs, which serve more than 150,000 youth, families and teachers every year.
