Bank of America Pavilion

Where Boston's Best Summer Concerts Take Place

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.

Concerts at Bank of America Pavilion

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:

  • Legal Harborside - 270 Northern Ave - Head to the rooftop lounge on the 3rd floor - best waterfront views and great seafood.
  • Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill - 250 Northern Ave - Don't get too distracted by the big screens with non-stop sports, or you'll miss your concert.  Order a beer and burger, and enjoy the action.
  • LTK (Legal Test Kitchen) - 225 Northern Ave - Chowder, cocktails, and fish tacos should keep you happy.  Order paella for a splurge.
