Cape Cod Melody Tents' 2013 Season

One of our favorite summer season outings is a trip to the Cape Cod Melody Tent to enjoy a live musical performance. There is simply no better way to experience a concert than at this venue. For over 60 years, some of the best performers in the world have graced the stage here. This theater is one of the few outdoor theaters-in-the-round still in existence. The intimate setting has attracted patrons and performers to this venue for decades. With no seat more than 50 feet from the stage, every concert attendee is assured a great experience.

The 2013 season performances will begin with a concert by REO Speedwagon on Friday, June 21st. Other performers appearing this season are Chicago on Friday, June 28th; a double header with Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs on Saturday, July 6th; Lyle Lovett on Sunday, July 7th; the great Melissa Etheridge on Thursday, July 11th; The Doobie Brothers on Saturday, July 13th; jazz trumpeter Chris Botti on Friday, August 2nd; American Idol Winner and country music star Scotty McCreery on Friday, August 9th; and Lynryd Skynyrd on Friday, August 16th.

On Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons will be performing. This is my personal, all-time favorite group. Such memories their music elicits for me. I grew up listening and dancing to such tunes as "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Walk Like a Man", and "Sherry". We were fortunate to attend their performance a couple of years ago and it was indescribable. The energy under the tent was palpable. I don't think we sat during the entire show. So many people there knew all the words to all of their music, as did I, and we sang along. It was one of the most amazing and memorable concerts I have attended anywhere. The theater production "Jersey Boys" has introduced a new generation of fans to this great music.

The 2013 season at the Melody Tent will come to a close this year on Friday, August 30th with a performance by none other than Huey Lewis & The News. Their appearance is part of their 30th Anniversary Tour.

A complete list of performers with concert dates and times is available on the Melody Tent website. If you are visiting Cape Cod this summer, attending a performance at the Melody Tent is something you will always remember. It is unlikely you will ever have this kind of concert experience again. Tickets are available online from their website.
