One of the oldest continuously-operating tent theaters-in-the-round in the US, along with our sister venue the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset. A 2,300-seat summer, open-air theatre that hosts national artists and comedians on a revolving stage. No seat is more than 50 feet from the stage!

It's a win-win-win. We've been coming here for years. Locals define the summer season as when the tent goes up, and when it goes down. They often have returning favorites, like the band Chicago. This year we looked forward to seeing Joe Bonamassa. Fantastic. Sometimes...More

My wife and I attended a Joe Bonamassa concert at the Cap Code Melody tent in August to celebrate our 30th anniversary. First, it was HOT. Second, it was awesome. The stage rotates so you get a good view of the performers from all sides....More

The Melody Tent has been a place to go and enjoy some awesome acts you love. Theater in the round on a summer night is a real pleasure. Quality of the acts is just awesome.

Lines are beer are crazy long and slow. Unfortunately they do not have separate lines for food and water so they are losing out on money and providing poor service. Everything inside the tent is great, it is just the concession area that is terrible.
