We went last night to the the Irish Rock Music Festival for a very enjoyable evening. The venue was easy to find, parking was plentiful, and there were concession stands with drinks and snacks but without long lines. Seating is in the round, but for these performances they only used the seats on one side. Sound quality was good, seats... More

We usually visit the melody tent a couple of times each summer. It is an intimate venue to watch some of your favorite celebrities. This evening we were there to see "BOYZ to MEN". What a wonderful performance! The stage rotates so every seat is a good one. When visiting Cape Cod, try to also visit the Melody Tent...

I went to the Tent twice this summer. I saw Ziggy Marley and 4 Tops & Temptations. I've also been here previous seasons. This is a great concert venue. Just the right size and not a bad seat in the place. There is a rotating stage so you will get to see your artist's front and back:) The sound is... More

Love to come here. It's large enough to get swept up in the excitement of the crowd yet small enough that almost every seat is a good view (just avoid seats that say obstructed by pole, which are very few since the stage rotates for every show). Music events here usually sound pretty good, but I've noticed that it seems... More

The Cape Cod Melody Tent is a great venue with a rotating stage and nary a bad seat in the house. Last night we caught the Moody Blues still going after a half century of rock and roll. A blue haze filled the tent when we arrived, but that old familiar smell from long ago was absent which was probably... More

Went to see Greg Allman. Was surprised at how many drunk and high people hanging out. A couple of guys in our row were super stoned and ruined the concert for the people behind them (who ended up leaving early) Some drunkard fell on the young security girl and she had to leave because she was really hurt and crying....

Awesome show, some new songs, some good Sugarland songs. Started out a little slow but built up to a good show. Would very much like to see Sugarland again.

I had never been to the Cape Cod Melody Tent but it came highly recommended by friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the revolving stake - ensuring that there's no bad seat in the house. It's not such a huge venue, comparatively, so one feels close to the stage from every seat. The staff was friendly and helpful both with guiding my... More
