About this Performance
Grammy® Award-winning maverick Gary Clark Jr. channels his signature sound from the crossroads of rock ’n’ roll, blues, jazz, hip-hop, reggae, and punk. Clark’s new album This Land – his most accomplished to date – is a socially relevant and musically ambitious declaration that’s as unapologetic, undeniable, and unique as he is. It’s an embodiment of an ever-evolving sound that’s made him into a live music powerhouse and artistic force anointed by everyone from President Obama to Prince. A UK native of Ugandan heritage, Michael Kiwanuka was raised in north London and has risen to the top of the British charts with his blend of vintage soul, folk, and stone-cold grooves. With influences including Jimi Hendrix and Bill Withers, Michael will be celebrating the release of a new record, his first since 2016’s critically acclaimed Love & Hate.
Regretfully, Michael Kiwanuka has been diagnosed with tonsillitis and is unable to perform at the Hollywood Bowl tonight. We wish him a speedy recovery! We’re excited to announce that Benjamin Booker will be opening the show. Concert start time remains at 7PM. For questions please call Audience Services at 323.850.2000, available 10am to 6pm daily.
