Out of the blue, Beastie Boys have announced a single show this fall in Los Angeles on September 24 at the Hollywood Bowl. The date is posted on the new Beastieboys.com home page that also announces the collector's edition release of Check Your Head on March 30. Avoid clicking and reading the information titled "Beastie Boys Live at Hollywood Bowl" on Beastieboys.com; it'll only confuse you. I will explain it in plain English.
Starting today (March 16), you may buy tickets for the Beastie Boys show in Los Angeles on September 24 if you participate in the Hollywood Bowl's special program. The program allows you to buy up to 9 tickets for any 5 shows that you wish to attend this year at the venue. You must buy tickets to 5 shows. The program is impractical unless you live in the Greater Los Angeles area and attend shows frequently. The benefit of this program is it allows you to buy tickets in advance of the general on-sale date -- meaning, you can get the best seats in the house now if you're willing to make the investment.
The general on-sale date for the Hollywood Bowl show is May 2. Ticket prices range depending upon seating choices. The most expensive ticket is $75 and the least expensive is $25.
