We attended the Moody Blues concert not only did they put on an excellent concert but we had awesome seats. It doesnt matter where you sit because you feel like you are on stage. Love the Tent

We went to two shows this summer. It is just the right size for an informal concert. The stage turns, which means you always have a great seat. A word of caution, if the tickets don't say "a night with...." there will be a warm up act. It's long, then there is a very long intermission before the actual show... More

just about any seat in the house is a great one! Problem is that the shows are so-so. Management appears to book the better acts they get on the weekends at their South Shore venue, and if they come here, it's on a weekday. Leaves you feeling a little exploited since they know people are looking for entertainment and will... More

We go to the Melody Tent quite often. The last time we went, the Cape Cod Symphony was playing there for the firs time. As usual, they were excellent. We have seen Bill Cosby, The Beach Boys, Pine Martini (who are positively the best musical group we have ever seen) and many other performers. There is easy access in and... More

We are regular concert goers all over New England and planned a trip to the Cape around a Lyle Lovett concert at the Melody Tent. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. It's a great venue and not a bad seat in the place. If you haven't seen a concert in the round it takes a little... More

You know how you can sometimes get stuck in distant seats when you're at a concert and can't even see the entertainers' faces? Well, not in this place! Every seat is literally a great seat around the revolving stage. The parking lot is large enough, FREE, and close to the Tent. The staff smiles, and are even gracious when you... More

The venue was small and intimate. The music sounded great. It was in the round. Beverages were reasonably priced. All around great time.

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...
