Boston has an incredibly long musical history as artists from every genre have made their bones on the small stages of music halls all over town. In a city that brought us Van Morrison, Steven Van Zandt, Rob Zombie, Bell Biv DeVoe, Leonard Bernstein, Dick Dale, Aerosmith, New Kids on the Block, The Cars, and of course, Boston, it’s possible that attending any number of Boston concerts could mean seeing the next big thing.
Seeing concerts in Boston doesn’t just mean finding something new, it’s of course home to major concert halls that host the hottest A-list stars in the business. The biggest venues include: TD Garden (home of the Boston Celtics), the Wilbur Theatre, the House of Blues, Fenway Park (home of the Red Sox), Paradise Rock Club & Lounge, Bank of America Pavilion, and the Orpheum Theater.
Another great feature of the Boston live music scene is the ability to see really great concerts in smaller, more intimate venues. Everything from lounge shows and live jazz to folk rock and R&B graces the stage of stalwart venues like The Beehive, TT the Bear’s Place, and Lucky’s Lounge.
So whether you’re looking to see someone famous, someone who might become famous, or legends that became famous working through the ranks of Boston’s scene, there’s always a show to be found any night of the week.
