My wife and I visited Memphis for the weekend. Looking up things to do I found Overton Park and Levitt Shell. We had never been there visiting before so we decided to check it out Saturday evening. The stage is a seashell shape and it looks out to a grassy hill where everyone sits and enjoys. You bring your own... More

We have been to Levitt Shell several times, once to watch the Grizzlies play and once to see a Lucero concert. Both experiences were great! It is very family friendly and wonderful for people watching. It's right beside Overton Park and this is a very trendy, safe, family friendly area in Memphis.

We attended one of the free concerts this summer. The weather was lovely especially for a summer night outdoors in Memphis. We brought chairs and a picnic dinner and enjoyed it before the concert started. A very lovely evening with family.

It was a nice outdoor place to visit. There is plenty of seating and it is easy to see those on the stage.

This is a grat venue for concerts. They have lots of free concerts here during the summer. And they also have some nice movies... It is great for piknics too, there is a nice lawn where you can put your camping chairs or blankets... Just sit back and enjoy the show.

You would think EVERYBODY knows about Levitt Shell's FREE CONCERTS. But you would be surprised about how many people do not know about it and/or choose not to come to midtown Memphis to enjoy an evening outdoors listening to GREAT music for FREE (or a donation of your choice) Grab a chair, cooler, food, bug spray and it's the best...

I went to see Cedric Burnside in June 2014 and was delighted this free venue was so fabulous on an early summer night. I thought it would be really crowded, but there was ample room both up high for lounging on chairs or blankets, and up close to the stage for dancing. I never felt crowded or threatened by elbows...

An amphitheater that hosts lots of free music and lets the audience enjoy the event. The bands that come through are pretty enjoyable and on numerous occasions you'll be thrilled by some outstanding performances. A very relaxed family friendly atmosphere. Be sure carry your own lawn chairs.

This was a 60th celebration of a Rock and Roll. The grounds were nice but there wasn't enough seating due to the tremendous turnout.
