It's legendary.  This venue is absolutely one of the most loved places to tour for most country artists.

We are talking about The Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, of course, located on Meadowbrook Lane in Gilford, New Hampshire.

Jordan Davis said in an interview he can't wait to go fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee when he play in June at the venue with Dierks Bentley.

Luke Bryan loves to play at what was formerly known as "Meadowbrook." In fact, he brings the whole family and they rent a place on the water for a little rest and relaxation during the hectic touring season.  Bryan played three shows last year at BNHP.

Why do artists love this place so much?  It's easy to love when the entire backstage is like a Disneyland for adults.  There's a pool and basketball court, a small pond with boats, and all kinds of grown-up toys to play with.

Did I mention the food is fabulous too, with fresh lobster at most dinners?

Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion has been nominated 12 times for Academy of Country Music's Venue of the Year, six times for Country Music Association's Venue of the Year, and also nominated for an International Entertainment Byers Association Award.  Yes, I said "International".

With 50 shows scheduled this year, there's something for everyone at one of America's premier concert venues. We are so lucky to live close enough to experience the world's top talent work and play here.
