An increase in prices for Hollywood Bowl tickets was approved Tuesday by the LA County Board of Supervisors.

Price increases for the 2012 season will range from $1 to $6 per ticket. Most of the increases will be at the lower end of the ticket price range.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, which leases the Bowl from the county, said the new levels are necessary to cover the expenses of producing and marketing shows, including artists' fees. The association, which last sought a price increase two years ago, said the new prices would still be competitive with other venues.

The cost of parking will not change.
