Since 1950, visitors to Cape Cod have been entertained at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. It was founded as the Cape Cod Music Circus, a sister venue to the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset, Massachusetts. These two venues are the only continuously operating theater-in-the-round style tent theaters in the United States. Originally known for its live theater productions from May to September, the Cape Cod Melody Tent plays host to many touring music acts such as Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, B. B. King, Chicago and The Temptations. Comedians such as Jim Gaffigan and Paula Poundstone also give summer shows. Enjoy a show by the sea at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and get your tickets at StubHub.
