Spring is here, and Santa Barbara Bowl season is kicking off. From ‘90s hip-hop throwback concerts to comedy performances, here are five Santa Barbara Bowl shows we’re excited for this season:
June 5th, 7pm
Join the beloved singer-songwriter from Simon & Garfunkel for an evening of classic hits like “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” and new jams from his 2016 album Stranger to Stranger. Simon’s legendary band and solo careers have earned him 12 Grammy Awards and recognition in both the Songwriters and Rock ‘n Roll Halls of Fame.
Flight of the Conchords
July 1st, 7pm
Bret and Jemaine are back on the road for another hysterical and catchy summer of Flight of the Conchords tunes. Fans of their short-run HBO series and the original BBC show, should snag tickets to catch the Grammy Award-winning duo in Santa Barbara soon, as it’s likely to be a sold out show.
I Love the 90s
July 3rd, 6:30pm
Children and music lovers of the 90s, this is your night for some throwback hip-hop. All in one evening, you’ll be able to “Bust a Move” with Young MC and jam out to hits like “Ice Ice Baby” and “Push It” with Vanilla Ice and Salt-N-Pepa. Tone Loc and Color Me Badd will also be on hand.
Steve Martin & Martin Short
August 14th, 7:30pm
Join entertainers Steve Martin and Martin Short for an evening of stand-up comedy, musical numbers, storytelling, and film clip screenings. Martin’s band the All Male Bluegrass Boys will join the comedic titans for what’s sure to be an laughter and dance filled evening.
October 15th, 7:30pm
From “Brown Eyed Girl” to “Into the Mystic,” Van Morrison has stamped his name onto rock and roll history countless times. Taking place towards the end of the Santa Barbara Bowl season, early ticket buyers can look forward to a beautiful, brisk evening of “moondancing.”
