The Bank of America Pavilion on the South Boston Waterfront overlooks Boston Harbor and and is where you'll find some of Boston's hottest summer concerts programmed by Live Nation.
An outstanding sound system, cool breezes wafting through the open-air pavilion sides, and spectacular views of Boston city lights dancing across the water add to the magic.
Live Nation books a mixture of acts - everything from rock concerts by the hottest bands to more mellow performances. Performers typically include headliners such as Norah Jones, Yanni, the Beach Boys, as well as rising stars.
Most seats in the amphitheater-style Pavilion provide good lines of vision to the stage, and the excellent sound system means you'll be able to hear well and shouldn't experience any distortion.
Although you can get food and drink from the concessions inside the Pavilion, the immediate South Boston Waterfront neighborhood now offers a LOT of other options. In fact, if you haven't been to this part of the city in the last year or so, you may not recognize the waterfront along Atlantic Ave near the Pavilion.
For example, here are just a few of the places within a block or two of the Pavilion that will still be open after a show:
If you're planning to stay over in Boston after a concert at the Pavilion, you'll find three excellent hotels (the Seaport, Renaissance, and Westin) right in the South Boston Waterfront neighborhood.
Other good choices in the nearby Downtown Financial District include the luxurious Langham and InterContinental. Both are near South Station, and are about a mile from the Pavilion.
You can easily get to the Pavilion (290 Northern Ave) on the T (Boston's subway).
Take the Red Line to South Station and transfer to the Silver Line. Take the Silver Line to the Silver Line Way stop (right after you come above ground); going back to South Station, take any inbound Silver Line bus - they all go back to South Station.
You can also walk from South Station - distance is only about a mile.
The closest parking to Bank of America Pavilion is at the Park Lane Garage (1 Park Lane, which runs parallel to Northern Ave), and in the parking lot across the street from the Pavilion at 301 Northern Ave.
