That is my picture and I DEMAND that is it taken down as soon as possible. I DO NOT want to make this a big deal, but I will if I have to. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.239.59.147 (talkcontribs) 03:02, 7 November 2005‎

KCRW webcast/Van Morrison event[edit]

Webcasts happen at concerts all the time, the fact that this is the first one from the Hollywood Bowl does not make it notable without third party coverage. The only ref is from KCRW themselves which makes it promotional at best. Do we add to the article the first time someone sold t-shirts at an event, or the first concert featuring hot dog sales? If its notable then there must be an LA Times ref or something in the music press? Mfield (talk) 19:01, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Here's a full lengthly article in the Los Angeles Times (the second largest metropolitan newspaper in the US) about the concert for Astral Weeks at the Hollywood Bowl that mentions the webcast. Is this a notable third party? Van Morrison discusses Astral Weeks which he'll perform at the Hollywood Bowl. So can I put the entry back in using this reference without you reverting it?Agadant (talk) 20:13, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Here's an article from Rolling Stone: Van Morrison to perform full Astral Weeks, The Guardian: Is this the best album ever made?, NME: Van Morrison to perform Astral Weeks in LA. So accordingly, I think this concert will be viewed by many critics, musicians and serious music fans as a very important event and the fact that it is being held at the Hollywood Bowl and being broadcast on the first ever live webcast from the venue perhaps should make it as notable and worthy of being included in the article as some now forgotten film.Agadant (talk) 21:22, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes that calibre of reliable third party citations would certainly accord the event notability, assuming that they are more than just interviews with Van himself or statements by KCRW who are involved as well. Basically if the event is given extensive third party coverage. Mfield (talk) 23:48, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll make an entry on this event and if you feel like you can make an improvement to it for better incorporation into the article, please do. Agadant (talk) 15:42, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
I hadn't looked at the article when I wrote that last remark. (I was puzzled for a minute there!) Thanks so much Mfield. Agadant (talk) 15:48, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

affordability at the bowl[edit]

One great thing about the Hollywood Bowl is the affordability of the tickets. Seats can be as cheap as eleven dollars (2013 season)and you get a world class act in the bargain. It's a truly democratic venue from this standpoint and perhaps can be mentioned? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.119.151.233 (talk) 22:58, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

What are those things growing out of the arch?[edit]

The article really does not explain the reason, purpose for the three huge, ugly periscopes sticking out of the arch shell. The must be some reason for destroying the aesthetics of the arch. Whose stupid idea was it to do it in this manner? Fotoguzzi (talk) 15:13, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
