The bad: Dress light. Once seated, its like being in a hot car with the windows up on while in the shade. There is no air circulation. An average sized 6'0 person sitting on the hard plastic seat will have their knees touching the seat in front of them. Not all concessions accept credit cards. The good: There are great... More

Just went to the Melody tent again this year to see the Frankie Valli and Four Seasons show. Frankie just turned 80 in May of 2014! You'd never know it. Fantastic show. He can still hit those high notes. Played most of the great hits and the crowd was very enthusiastic.

This is a great spot to see a show, music act, comedian. I have seen Martina McBride, Kevin James and others over the years. It is a relatively small venue in relation to concerts so you get a Personal Feeling which is awesome. I highly recommend going at least once if you have never been.

$8 beers are not the highlight here, however the staff seems to be kind and the setting is pretty chill. Outside the tent they have a smoking section behind the bathrooms. Inside the tent, the seats aren't super-tight and the stage rotates slowly so you can see every member in the band (nobody puts the drummer/percussionist in the corner). Very... More

We love the melody tent, we come every year . It is a really awesome venue to see a show, the stage rotates so there is not a bad west in the house. They also do great childrens shows during the day,

We saw Frankie Vallie & the Four Seasons here last summer and the show was fantastic. Everyone (and we were a group of 10 adults) loved the performance. The crowd was really into the music, everyone was up dancing. Try to go at least once a season, you won't be disappointed. Parking was easy & free and it did not... More

If there is an act or concert you see listed here that you like, get the tickets. You won't regret it. This venue is small but there isn't a bad seat in the place. It is a large tent with rotating stage, and you can see very band member. Even though the tent flaps are open, it does get very... More
