Cape Cod Melody Tent - Hyannis, MA

The third musical tent to open in the country, Cape Cod Melody Tent launched in 1950 as a venue for operettas and musical shows produced by the South Shore Music Circus, Inc. In the beginning, the venue had a 1,000-seating capacity with old-fashioned wooden risers. In 1975, it was converted into a modern concrete structure, and in 1994, the traditional canvas tent was replaced by state-of-the-art vinyl featuring a specially designed venting system, for a more comfortable entertainment experience. The venue’s sound and lighting equipment were also upgraded, and its capacity was increased to 2,300. The Cape Cod Melody Tent might not be as large as other theaters in New England, but legendary performers have graced its stage such as Carole King, Aretha Franklin, and BB King.

The Cape Cod Melody Tent is less than a mile from the heart of Hyannis, and visitors can take a cab, car, or even walk to the venue. Because it is located in a residential area, tailgate parties are not allowed in its on-site parking lot. Cameras are typically prohibited inside the venue unless otherwise noted. No outside food or drinks are allowed, as well as backpacks, coolers and lawn chairs.

Cape Cod Melody Tent is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and scheduled events during the season go on rain or shine. Nearby attractions include galleries, classic crab shacks, and the beaches of Cape Cod. If you are planning to watch a concert at Cape Cod Melody Tent, Event Tickets Center offers a wide selection of tickets to choose from.
