Kenny Loggins Played at an Empty Hollywood Bowl for a Special Live Stream Concert!

Kenny Loggins did something super cool over the weekend – he played at the Hollywood Bowl to an empty crowd!

The 72-year-old singer performed some of his biggest hits, including “Footloose,” as part of WME talent agent Richard Weitz‘s RWQuarantunes live stream fundraiser.

Weitz and his 17-year-old daughter Demi have been raising money for the past two months with an online concert series and they’ve already raised more than $3 million for COVID-19 relief efforts.

“To think that two months ago when Demi and I started the RWQuarantunes that we would go from our kitchen to the Hollywood Bowl is not only surreal but very humbling,” Weitz told CNN.

Kevin Bacon appeared during the live stream this weekend to talk about the origin of the song “Footloose,” which was written for his movie of the same name.

“When we were making the movie, we didn’t have the song yet,” Kevin said. “In the middle of shooting, Kenny was still writing the song. It was just Kenny on an acoustic guitar, that was the demo … I heard the song and was like, ‘Yeah, That’s cool.’ It just hits you. I did what I could, but I don’t think the movie would have been what it was without it.”

The Hollywood Bowl will be closed for the 2020 summer season, so it was a special treat to have the iconic venue opened for the live stream concert!
