I live in Bethlehem, PA where we have our own Levitt Pavilion. I've heard about the Levitt in Memphis and wanted to experience it as well. What a beautiful setting in Overton Park. Much nicer than the setting in Bethlehem.

We always enjoy our trips to The Shell. We go to the free concerts in the summer. Pack some drinks, snacks, lawn chairs and we are good to go. Take bug spray and/or citronella candles. Cheap entertainment!

Elvis fans will revel at the site of his first ever paid concert. Tickets were $1.25 in advance and $1.50 at the gate. This stage was nearly destroyed several times but saved by forward thinking souls. Check it out for free most days.

had no idea about this place & it's history with the early Elvis, some very interesting facts told by our singing guide on the backbeats music bus tour

Full disclosure - I've never attended a performance here. The draw for me is knowing that this is the site of Elvis's first billed performance. Visited today with a grandchild to explain the significance of the place. Highly Recommended
