4 Popular Music Venues In Boston You Should Visit

Boston is a hub of excellent live music, concerts, and more electric entertainment during the year’s warmer months. One big reason Boston is a live music destination is the wide variety of music venues, from the large Fenway Park to smaller venues like House of Blues. Many of Boston’s best music venues are close to vacation rentals with Thatch. For example, our Thatch on Newbury is close to The MGM Music Hall and many more. Here are some of Boston’s best venues to see and hear live music.

MGM Music Hall

The MGM Music Hall opened its doors in August 2022 and is one of the more modern music venues in the city. It has a capacity of more than 5,000 seats. Because of its size and location in the city limits, it attracts some big acts. For instance, in 2024, you can see The Roots, St. Vincent, Dashboard Confessional, Kings of Leon, and more. The venue also invites comedy acts, such as Kevin Hart.

House of Blues

The House of Blues is located in Kenmore Square. This venue can accommodate more than 2,000 people. It’s a great venue, but it’s also an awesome place to grab food and drinks before your show. In 2024, you can plan to see Jo Dee Messina, Infected Mushroom, Manchester Orchestra, and many more acts.

TD Garden

This is the biggest music venue in the Boston area, with a capacity of nearly 20,000 people. It’s where you will find some of the biggest acts to grace Boston. Coming up in 2024, you can grab tickets to see Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Kacey Musgraves, Billie Eilish, Andrea Bocelli, and many more.

Fenway Park

Another big venue is Fenway Park. While it is mostly known for baseball during the warmer months, it’s also an amazing place for concerts. Grab a seat for acts such as Hootie and the Blowfish, blink-182, Green Day, and more bands coming in 2024.
