365 Things to Do in Memphis #170: See a Show at the Shell

Posted by Holly Whitfield | June 18th 2018 6634 0

If you love live music and free things, you’re going to love item #170  on the 365 Things to Do in Memphis list: see a show at the Levitt Shell.

Memphis’ Levitt Shell In Action

The Levitt Shell hosts 50 free concerts and numerous other events – like paid fundraising concerts and film screenings – every year.

The free shows are the best, though. It doesn’t really matter who’s playing – the bands are all good, even the ones you’ve never heard of. The point of Shell shows is that you’re outside, sitting on a blanket with your friends, eating the picnic that you brought, listening to music outside with hundreds of other Memphians.

The shows are low key, popular, and if you want to dance, there’s plenty of room near the stage.

If you’re going to check this item off of the 365 Things to Do in Memphis list this year, check out the summer lineup here.

    Can you let me know the dates of the shows, I am planning on coming down sometime in August or maybe September, and would like to know if anything is going on then.
