I have been here many times for live concerts. Bring something to sit on and a cooler with your favorite drinks and food. Usually they also have some vendors selling food and drinks. They have a website that will keep you informed on a schedule...More

Went as part of a bus tour with live musician/tour guide. A must for Elvis fans, but very interesting for non fans.

The outside seating was very pleasant. We brought folding chairs, but many people just brought a blanket instead and sat on the ground. A nice upward slope from the stage gives good viewing where ever you are. The sound levels were mixed very well.

It was fun visiting this outdoor venue and seeing where Elvis sang for pay for the first time. He sang “It’s Alright Mama” and one other song. When they wanted an encore, he just sang the same two songs again, because that’s all he was...More

Levitt Shell after July 16th? (3 Replies)
I am visiting Memphis mid July and thought a concert at Levitt would be perfect for my family. But, it appears the concerts end on the 16th. I can't see anything for the July 19th - 23rd period. Do the concerts end for the rest of the summer? Any other suggestions? We would love to listen to music (especially free) but Beale St. is off limits due to kids being 15 and under.

Thank you so much for the link! I will definitely revisit the Beale Street options.

Lisa Marie Presley will be at a free concert this Saturday at the Shell, This will be great, some may know that her father (can't think of hi name lol) have his first true concert at the shell, I think the misspelled his name in a poster, This is when his rocket ride to stardom really took off & the gyrations began Any way back to the future, Lisa will be there on Saturday & like most things at the Shell it's free
