The Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is one of Boston’s most popular outdoor amphitheaters and has hosted some of the city’s most memorable concerts. Situated on Boston Harbor and adjacent to Rowes Wharf, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is the city’s premiere outdoor summer concert. With a seating capacity of 5,000, the venue is also one of the largest in the area. Used as a summer concert venue, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is only open from May through September. The venue’s top of the line sound system, spectacular lighting capabilities and cool harbor breezes make for a truly unforgettable experience.

Blue Hills Bank Pavilion History

Throughout its history, the venue has gone through a number of name changes. It was originally known as Harbor Lights Pavilion, or simply Harbor Lights. The venue would eventually become associated with Bank of Boston and renamed Bank of Boston Pavilion. In 1996, the bank merged with BayBank and the name changed to BankBoston Pavilion. Live Nation purchased the venue in 1999 and sold the naming rights to FleetBoston. The venue was then renamed FleetBoston Pavilion. The venue’s name would change to Fleet Pavilion after the bank acquired Summit Bancorp and sold off several of its New England branches.

In 2004, FleetBoston merged with Bank of America, and the venue went through yet another name change and was renamed Bank of America Pavilion.

On January 1, 2014, Blue Hills Bank won the naming rights for this waterfront amphitheater, and the venue was once again renamed to Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. Concertgoers can breathe a sigh of relief as the venue will hold onto this name for just under 10 years.
