Hailing from New Orleans, Connick established himself as a musical prodigy at a young age, joining his first jazz band when he was just 10 years old. He made his solo debut in 1988 with the album “20,” and in the decades that followed Connick has earned worldwide acclaim for his smooth jazz vocal style on classic tracks like “It Had to Be You” and “The Way You Look Tonight.”

Since its opening in 1922, the Hollywood Bowl has been the premier destination for live music in Southern California, hosting everyone from Billie Holiday to The Beatles to Yo-Yo Ma under the iconic silhouette of its concentric-arched band shell. For more than 100 years, music and performance have had a central destination in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Bowl is a venue for showcasing artistic greatness and celebrating our global cultural heritage.
