, Staff

The Cape Cod Melody Tent has revealed the first set of performers who will make their way to Hyannis this summer to perform at the intimate venue, where every seat is within 50 feet of the stage. 

Highlighting the initial list of performers is Darius Rucker, who will hit Hyannis for a solo headlining show on Sunday, July 25. The show will come a month ahead of his performance at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro as part of the 6th annual New England Country Music Festival on Saturday, August 21. The former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman rocked the Melody Tent last summer for a show that ranked #9 on BMS’s Top 29 Concerts of 2009.

Blues icon B.B. King will also return to Massachusetts for another year at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. A pack of classic legends including Tony Bennet, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the Beach Boys, The Temptaions and The Four Tops are confirmed to perform in Hyannis this summer. George Thorogood & The Destroyers will also rock the Melody Tent as will Boz Scaggs.

Tickets for all scheduled shows will go on sale this weekend through Ticketmaster. The venue’s box office is scheduled to open on Sunday, May 30 for in-person sales.

The complete schedule of shows with ticket information is below.

More shows will be added to the South Shore Music Circus lineup over the next couple of months. A variety of children’s entertainment and comedy shows will also be held at the venue, as well as a World Wrestling Entertainment (WEE) event.

The Cape Cod Melody Tent and its sister venue, the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset, are both operated by South Shore Playhouse Associates (SSPA), a not-for-profit organization that supports arts and education in southeastern Massachusetts.
