BURBANK — Thousands crammed into the Starlight Bowl for a set of Fourth of July performances and a fireworks spectacular Saturday funded by the city, even as it has struggled to cut costs during the recession. Children danced between picnic baskets and lawn chairs in the hill above the sold-out venue, while grown-ups sipped wine and took in the sounds of the Burbank Philharmonic. As the three-hour event came to a close, the bowl’s lights were shut off and the crowd of more than 4,000 turned their gazes — and cameras — skyward for a $25,000 pyrotechnics show.

Online tickets and a new concessionaire are making their debut performance this season at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank. Tickets are now being sold online to make purchases easier, said Cathryn Villalobos, recreation supervisor for the city of Burbank. The tickets can be printed out from a home computer, and use a scannable number that is checked at the gate. “We’ve had shows in the past where everyone is rushing to get there because tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and some shows sell out,” she said.

Starlight Bowl events worth the money I recently read the Aug. 20 “Alhambra event bests Starlight Bowl fare” Mailbag item, and since my wife and I have been prominently featured in the audience photographs in this issue as well as the front page of the July 23 issue, I would like to present another point of view. My wife and I have been season ticket holders in the front row of the Starlight Bowl for four years now, and I can truly say it’s worth the money.

From a distance, Starlight Bowl might as well have been a private dance club on Sunday night, as residents twisted and shouted to the sounds of Captain Cardiac and the Coronaries. The ’50s and ’60s band moved through the crowd and sang along with audience members to favorites such as “Great Balls of Fire” and “I Saw Her Standing There.” Locals took in the band’s energetic sounds while helping to raise $50,000 for a new scoreboard at Memorial Field — part of the city’s $18-million joint athletic field project.

A sold-out crowd spent Sunday night twisting and shouting when the Fab Four — The Ultimate Tribute to The Beatles returned to the Starlight Bowl in Burbank. The performers — Ron McNeil (John Lennon), Ardy Sarraf (Paul McCartney), Michael Amador (George Harrison) and Rolo Sandoval (Ringo Starr) — not only resemble the famous quartet, but they sing and play just like them. McNeil reminded the crowd that all the music is performed live onstage by the guys. Nothing is pre-recorded, he said.
