Sparks have announced the biggest headline show of their more than 50-year career, taking place Sunday, July 16 at the Hollywood Bowl, with special guests They Might Be Giants. 

The internationally acclaimed and utterly unique pop pioneers Sparks—Los Angeles’ own Ron and Russell Mael, stars of the recent hit documentary movie The Sparks Brothers—bring their “unlimited genius” to this special hometown show.

Grammy-winning They Might Be Giants is Brooklyn’s own beloved perpetual motion machine that, after 35 years, still records actively and tours worldwide, delivering a show that is melodic, upbeat, energetic, spontaneous, and even virtuosic.

“Our first experience of the Hollywood Bowl was in 1964 when our mom took us there to see The Beatles,” says Sparks’ Ron and Russell Mael. “Our futuristic Fiat Multipla could barely make it up the Bowl’s steep parking lot due to the Italian car’s meager horsepower. We risked life and limb driving backwards in reverse gear up the hill. It was way worth it, we got to see The Beatles. We never would have dreamed that in 2023 we would be standing on that same hallowed stage, performing for fans of our own group, Sparks. And hopefully everyone will have a better experience with the parking lot than we did.”
