Kids are going back to school and the summer clothes are going back in the closet. Before you start planning for the fall, let’s look back on the epic summer we had under the tent. We kicked the summer off with a busy June. We had the Wailers and Rusted Root, Joe Nichols, Lucinda Williams, the Irish Festival featuring Gaelic Storm, Steve Miller Band, Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Cape Symphony. The Wailers,Read more »

One of my favorite venues for a concern on the Cape, there is literally no bad seat anywhere in the house. Acoustics as well as sight-lines are excellent. Plenty of bathrooms and decent-enough concessions. Be aware that however easy it was to get in and park, it will be a million times harder when the concert is over and everyone leaves at the same time through a very limited number of vehicle exits. Allow yourself plenty of extra time.

The WWWF now the WWE used to broadcast pro wrestling from here. Vince McMahon would ask for donations to keep the program on the air. I used to watch it on WLNE channel 6 New Bedford, MA/Providence, RI in 1978 and 79.

Went to the Tent as a long time Cape resident and past sponsor of the Chowder festival only to be harassed by the sound board guy because I attempted to climb over the last row seating in order to avoid blocking the view of the patrons seated in the same aisle. Additionally I was accompanied to the Men's room by the Barnstable Police to make sure that I really needed to pee! While this was happening the rest of my party was being re-located throughout the venue because the sound guy was such a bonehead. When I returned I was informed that I was not allowed to re-take my seat and no-one could tell me where my wife was re-located to! All this angst for what? I had 2 beers and stopped. I wanted to enjoy the first night of summer but the neanderthal running the sound board became the HULK and not only physically abused me, but also intimidated my friends that had joined me ( which I paid for) for this event. My complaint to the Tent Staff went in one ear and out the next. I will never ever attend another event at the tent. I suggest that you do the same. I have lived on the Cape for 42 years and this type of treatment is incomprehensible to me, especially since my company had sponsored the Chowder festival for 10 of those years and I am a service provider to the Melody tent. Not anymore! And just as a secondary issue, the REO Speedwagon show was terrible! We had to endure a 40 minute delay to the opening set and then we had to listen to a 5 minute monologue about Vietnam which I am sure no one in the group had ever had any experience with! I tried to have fun, but they wouldn't let me. I suggest that you carefully examine what you are about to venture in to before you do so! This experience was a big bust for me and I will never be back again. I hope you hear me Tony. What happened tonight was garbage!

I took my grandchildren to see The Wiggles. A very HOT summer day. The show was to start at 11 and didn't start until noon. By then the small children were hot, tired, and fussy. Most of the audience left before the end of the show. Big disappointment!! I will say the staff were great. This was more a wiggles disappointment vs the Tent.

Melody Tent – Safe Venue? My husband and I have attended many concerts at the Melody Tent and have enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Beach Boys concert we attended last evening was an exception. The Beach Boys were terrific. The young people sitting behind were not. Their behavior ruined the concert for us. They seemed to be inebriated. They spilled their beer on us, swore, yelled incredibly loudly, “…just because they could,” said very inappropriate things, and so on. They didn’t respond to any requests to tone things down. The mother and daughter sitting next to us were visiting the Tent for the first time, and they left. We spoke to a person in charge of our row before intermission. She did offer us seats at the back of the venue. However we paid for better seats than that, and we were with invited guests. After they brought several more beers to the seats, some of which we wore, their behavior, not surprisingly, worsened. They lit lighters and jumped over the seats to actually be in our row. We asked them to settled down a bit, and then they became verbally abusive. We left our seats, and spoke to management. He said many things which added up to you can sit at the back of the venue. He didn’t want to move them, “…with only four sets left.” We stepped away because the conversation was a waste of time, and we wanted to try to enjoy the rest of the concert. Several points come to mind. With people that were seemingly inebriated, why were they still being served? Why would management allow them to remain in their seats when this type behavior on the sidewalks of downtown Hyannis would be against the law? Why would well behaved patrons be relinquished to the back, when badly behaved patrons be allowed to stay in the better seats? Why were we expected to be happy about being punished for their bad behavior? By allowing this outrageous behavior, what are we teaching our children? As residents of the Cape, it saddens us to say that we won’t be attending any more concerts there unless management uses a different approach to dealing with such bad behavior. We were embarrassed to have our guests see this. We had spoken so highly of this venue. Dealing effectively with bad behavior is part of good management. I guess that’s where the buck stops.

I attended an event at the Melody Tent on Saturday Aug. 23rd. I have attended many concerts there, but that was the first time I had ever been frisked by the gate keepers. Next season are you going to have TSA "agents" feeling up your customers?
