Blue Hills Bank Pavilion
Boston, MA

Bank of America Pavilion is an outdoor amphitheater located on the waterfront in Boston. With a seating capacity of 5,000 it is one of the larger venues in the area. Originally known as the Harbor Lights Pavilion, Live Nation purchased the venue in 1999 and sold the naming rights to FleetBoston Financial, changing the name of the venue to the FleetBoston Pavilion. Later in 2004 when FleetBoston merged with Bank of America the pavilion was renamed to Bank of America Pavilion. Located on Boston’s Fan Pier, adjacent to Rowes Wharf, this seasonal amphitheater is designed for easy assembly in the spring and dismantling in the fall. The high profile of the roof allows spectators to take in panoramic views of the Boston skyline and provides the height needed for sound and lighting equipment behind the stage. bank of america pavilion boston The circular footprint of the amphitheater, which covers an acre of land, would make it conducive to any arena-like activity, such as boxing, tennis, and circus performances, although only music is planned for this particular pavilion, which can be broken down and moved if desired. This kind of flexibility is the future of venue design, as owners and operators increasingly need to be able to relocate and reconfigure their theaters to take advantage of every booking opportunity in a very competitive market. In August 21, 2007, the American progressive metal band Dream Theater recorded several songs for their 3 CD/2 DVD album Chaos in Motion 2007–2008.

On those cool nights, head to the first blue tent on the left when you enter the Bank of America Pavilion. It’s the only spot to get hot coffee! – Team Live Nation


Walk the Lexus Red Carpet and check out the all-new 2014 IS 250 F SPORT right past the entrance for a chance to upgrade your concert experience or win free concert merchandise. #LexusVIP!

In 2004 FleetBoston merged with Bank of America; the pavilion was then renamed, Bank of America Pavilion.

Probably the best large venue in the Boston area. Good seating, right on the water, and parking isn't bad either. Only problem is the $11 cans of beer.


Enjoy a concert on the end of a pier and enjoy the music while surrounded by water!
