A bomb threat briefly interrupted a concert at the Hollywood Bowl by “Dead & Company,” authorities confirmed Thursday.

“Last night, a performance at the Hollywood Bowl was briefly interrupted while onsite authorities investigated an unfounded bomb threat that was called in during the concert,” Terry Kanakri of the county Department of Parks and Recreation said in a statement.

“Because the safety of our patrons is paramount, we immediately initiated a thorough search of the area that turned up no evidence validating the threat,” Kanakri said. “Hollywood Bowl security always includes onsite law enforcement officers, explosive detection dogs and metal detectors at all entrances to the venue. The concert resumed without further incident.”

The Hollywood Bowl is managed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Dead & Company, featuring members of the Grateful Dead, is scheduled to perform again Thursday evening at the Bowl.
