It was on the water, which was nice. However, the pavillion itself didn't allow for a lot of air movement and it was July 1st. Sound quality for the concert we saw was great. I've been to these types of venues before and have had a hard time hearing the performers. This time I heard it all. Lots of vendors... More

I have seen about 8 shows here and each and every one of them has been wonderful (Radiohead, The XX, Bloc Party, Interpol, The Killers, Sigur Ros and last night Counting Crows and Toad the Wet Sprocket). The sound quality is great, the location is really nice (Right in the water!) and the staff pleasant and helpful. It's more intimate... More

To start this is now called the Blue Bank Pavillion which was the old Bank Of America Pavillion. It's still on the water front which provides a beautiful water view. They really have built up this water front area with nice outside restaurants.We ate at Remy's outside with the water view & a nice breeze. The pavilion itself is small... More

I love the acts but I do not like that the staff allow people to stand during the show. What's the point of buying seats if you have to stand to see! Musical acts at these venues are for everyone to enjoy please enforce courtesy. Venue has good sound, easy access, easy parking and nearby food . Tickets are typical... More

Went to see Hall & Oats last night at the Bank of America Pavilion. First time at this venue and I have to say it is now my favorite venue! Although Boston traffic can be a pain, it is an easy commute via car and parking is right across the street for $22. Can't beat it! Easy in, easy out!... More

It had probably been 10 years since I had been to the Pavilion and I forgot how much I loved it! I brought my daughter and four of her friends to see a concert and it was great! We had great seats close to the stage, but because it is such a small venue, there is not a bad seat... More

My husband and I love coming to the BOA pavilion for concerts. It's a beautiful location on the harbor. Most of the seats are covered in the case of bad weather. On a nice night you get a beautiful breeze throughout the place. There are really no bad seats as it's a smaller venue. The only gripe I'd have was... More

I went to my first concert there last Saturday. I loved it! Great size for a venue, not too big, not small. Love the seating and very clean bathrooms! The usual concessions, Harpoon, etc. Located near a bunch of really cool bars you can go to after the concert, great sound quality.

The Pavillion has been renamed multiple times. I think it is called the TD North Pavillion now. It includes open air seating. Mostly metal card table chairs to sit on. They are rather close together so I usually receive my share of elbowing during most concerts. It is rather flat from the rear of the tent to the stage so... More
