What to Expect at the Pavilion in 2016


When I first moved to The Woodlands, I was more than excited to hear about The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. It was such an insane concept to have one of the world’s best outdoor amphitheaters in my own town, just minutes away. Maybe this is because I am from a small suburb of Chicago, however, I couldn’t wait to see what big names were on the summer schedule! The first concert I saw at the Pavilion was Fall Out Boy for my friends birthday. My friends and I wanted to experience lawn seats – something we have not done11760079_10206069053418701_6728045389722769216_n before in Chicago. To my surprise, it was quite comfortable (even though we forgot a blanket!!) and we had an amazing view. Another plus was that the concession stand was directly behind us with no line! We had such a great night and couldn’t wait to plan the next concert.

The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is conveniently located right near The Woodlands Mall and Market Street. Below is the current 7EYAGfWqSzGUQrAWluIl51qpssMzHjw6gJPLbvESuokZEs3ec_PLUOuhQskLVZXyGNyM=w3002016 schedule, but be sure to go to https://www.woodlandscenter.org/events for updates because you never know when your favorite band will announce a tour! A really great way to be first to know about show updates is to subscribe The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion email list. Another option is to download the Bandsintown App on your mobile device and it will actually sync with your music library then notify you immediately when your favorite artists will be in town. It’s seriously one of my favorite apps!
