Blue Hills Bank Pavilion(formerly Bank of America Pavilion) on the South Boston Waterfront overlooks Boston Harbor and is where you'll find Boston's hottest summer concerts.
An outstanding sound system, cool breezes from Boston Harbor wafting through the open-air pavilion sides, and spectacular views of city lights dancing across the water add to the magic.
Performers range from top headliners of today to popular groups from decades past, and shows almost always sell out.
Live Nation owns and programs the 5,000 seat venue.
Easily reached by public transportation and surrounded by restaurants, bars, and the city's liveliest nightlife, the Pavilion delivers plenty of entertainment.
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 Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is at the Park Lane Garage (1 Park Lane, which runs parallel to Northern Ave).
Boston Insider Tip: Confused by the Name?
If you've visited or lived in Boston for a couple of decades or more, you may remember when concerts first took place in 1994 in this big white tent on the waterfront, it was called Harbor Lights Pavilion.
Five years later, Live Nation purchased the venue and sold naming rights to Fleet Boston Financial - and not surprisingly, the name changed to FleetBoston Pavilion until 2004, when a bank merger caused it to be renamed Bank of America.
Flash forward to several years ago: locally owned Blue Hills Bank based in the Hyde Park area of Boston purchased naming rights through 2023 - so this popular concert venue is now called Blue Hills Bank Pavilion.
