The county Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved price hikes for the Hollywood Bowl’s 2014 season.

Prices for most seats will rise 1-5 percent, which translates to $1 to $2 extra for bench seats and $3-$9 more for box seats.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, which operates the bowl under a lease with the county, said the new pricing is “reasonable and competitive with other venues in Los Angeles County” and stressed that many low-cost seats remain available.

Forty percent of all tickets under the new pricing schedule will cost $28 or less every night, other than Saturdays when tickets are $32 or less. A quarter of all seats for Tuesday and Thursday night classical events sell for prices of $15 or less.

A tradition of offering $1 seats for the bench seats at the top of the iconic arena for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday classical concerts will stand.

But the best box seats for a Saturday night pop concert are priced as high as $177, while special event tickets for those seats can run to $310.

Parking charges will remain the same.
