The bowl is a beautiful place but it needs to be updated. The seats are hard and uncomfortable. The access is very cramped. The entertainment is great, the L.A. Phil is always great. The concessions are very expensive. But everyone should go to the Bowl at least once.

This is a classic venue and everyone must see once.
That being said bring your walking shoes, we went on a sticky hot night and was miserable. We sat next to very large individuals and due to the bench seating I got half a seat and I am not a petite person.

The show was wonderful the LA Philharmonic with John Williams and Julie Andrews narrated.

We brought a picnic dinner and ate at one of the picnic areas. It was a great way to decompress from the drive and relax before showtime.

I don't know if I would go back to the venue, but if there was a band that I really wanted to see .... maybe yes.

Park and Ride - the verdict is still out.

A must do if there is a concert on during your stay; its a unique setting with a surprisingly good sound for an outdoor venue. We saw the LA philharmonic perform some of Mendelssohn's work. We had central 'superseats' for what I thought was a good value ($50) purchased on the evening of the concert from the box office. However, there are prices to suit all budgets (including dining tables next to the stage - the 'nosh pit'!). Take a picnic or dine there, you won't regret it.

It is awesome to see a production here that begins in the twilight light and ends in the full blown darkness. I went during the summer to see Chicago directed by Brooke Shields. It was clearly a fun show but I purchased tickets in the W section which was still kind of far away, even to see the big screens. It was cold by intermission so I recommend bringing something warm. Bring your own food! Because you can!
