“A Midtown Mainstay....now better than ever!”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

I've visited the Shell many times over the years, and love not only it's historical significance (one of Elvis's first venues), but the unified efforts of so many to keep it there and have it restored. The Shell is one of those quirky things that makes Memphis MEMPHIS, and long may it live.

“very pretty”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Great park. Didn't like the heat. Overton Park is a great place to visit when in Midtown Memphis.

“A great spot to hear free music, relax and visit with friends.”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

We love to bring a picnic and chairs or blanket and meet friends here for a relaxing night under the stars. Thursdays-Sundays in the spring and fall. A variety of bands come here and play for a casual crowd. The nostalgic spot that goes back for many years in Memphis. This open air venue is in Overton Park in mid-town Memphis and is where Elvis Presley gave his first paid concert on July 30, 1954. A nice evening for visitors and families and even pets!
