Known as "Elvis' first concert", the Levitt Shell is a Memphis jewel. In the center of Midtown at Overton Park, Levitt Shell is home to free concerts many evenings every week through the summer. There are also ticketed concerts that help raise funds to maintain "The Shell". Always bring a few bucks to throw in the buckets that are passed around. That money goes towards upkeep and the likes.
Bring a blanket and a picnic basket full of beverages and snacks. Or enjoy one of the many food trucks.
