Opening night at the Hollywood Bowl trumpets the arrival of summertime in L.A.


Hollywood Bowl

This year, as the quintessential summer venue opened its doors to droves of Angelenos eagerly awaiting the Bowl’s 2013 debut, photographer Greg Grudt stood ready to capture the pomp with his Canon EOS-5D Mark III. With fireworks booming overhead, epic rockers and Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame inductees Steven Tyler and Joe Perry added to the celebratory din with a rousing rendition of their Aerosmith anthem “Walk This Way.” The moment presented the lensman with “an incredible opportunity to photograph two rock legends for the Hollywood Bowl,” he says. “It’s a shoot I’ll remember for a long time.” Though this particular show came to a close, the iconic Bowl is hosting a bevy of other belters, and related revelry, all summer long. Surely supporters will be walking that way for a Tyler- and Perry‑approved encore.
