We attended James Taylor concert on the 4th. Experienced the great concert with 20,000 of our closest friends. The lawn was far more packed than we have ever experienced when attending other concerts. Love laying on the lawn listening to sounds of music from the...More

Tanglewood is just so beautiful overlooking the Stockbridge Bowl and the rolling hills. Just when your visit to this musical wonderland couldn't get any better they have a Kripalu instructor on the lawn giving a yoga lesson. I went on a Saturday while the BSO...More

Have gone for popular artists, 4th of July, and postcast recordings before. If it an artist you care about seeing (not just hearing) the shed tickets are worth it. The lawn is great because you can picnic and the views can't be beat. The customer...More
