Levitt Shell

About

Built in 1936 and recognized as the site of Elvis Presley’s first professional rock-n-roll show, the Levitt Shell is an outdoor performing arts pavilion located in the heart of Midtown, Memphis in the beautiful Overton Park. Every year the Levitt Shell puts on more than 50 free concerts and events, made possible by the generous support of the community and encouraging common ground through the arts.
