Cape Cod Melody Tent Opening for 2010 Summer Season

Here on Cape Cod we are fortunate to have the Cape Cod Melody Tent, one of only two continuously-operated tent theatres in the round left in the United States. The Cape Cod Melody Tent has been presenting live, world-class entertainment for almost 60 years. This summer theater is a popular destination for residents, visitors, and touring performers alike. Such talented entertainers as Tony Bennett, Bill Cosby, Vince Gill, Johnny Mathis, B.B. King, Joe Cocker, the Beach Boys, Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, and Aretha Franklin appear year after year to a packed house.

Charlie and I have attended countless performances at the Melody Tent over the years. It is a truly wonderful and intimate theatre experience that we always enjoy. Whether this is because the theatre has only 2,250 seats or because the last row of seats is no more than 50 feet from the stage, their promise to put you “Closer to the Stars” could not be more true.

Appearing for the 2010 Summer Season are such icons as Willie Nelson, B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, Huey Lewis & The News, The B-52s, Hanson, Melissa Etheridge, and Adam Lambert of American Idol fame. Memorial Day weekend is traditionally “Opening Day” for the box office, located at 21 West Main Street in Hyannis. This year, that will be Sunday, May 30th at noon. The box office will be open daily from noon until 6:00 pm throughout the season. You can see a full listing of shows, show dates and times, a diagram of seating, and purchase tickets online from their website at You can also purchase tickets by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

If you are planning a trip to Cape Cod this summer, come stay with us at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast Inn and take in a great live performance at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. You’ll be glad you did.
