Boston welcomes some of the top musical acts in the world year-round. If you're up for a great show, check out what's playing at these venues:

The TDBanknorth Garden: The largest concert venue in Boston, "The Garden" is also home to the Boston Bruins and the Boston Celtics. It's also where sell-out concerts take place. Tickets for these shows can be purchased at The Garden, as well as online or through ticket agencies.

The Bank of America Pavilion: This smaller venue is located on the harbor and is open seasonally, typically for summer concerts. Earth, Wind & Fire; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Sting and LL Cool J will be taking the stage here this summer.

House of Blues: The House of Blues on Landsdowne Street features live music weekly. The acts range from jazz and blues to indie rock. Get here early for your seats and a bit to eat before the show.

Boston Harbor Hotel: It sounds unlikely, but the Boston Harbor Hotel is set up as one of the top summer concert venues in the city. The hotel's Summer in the City experience features live music five days a week on the barge located just outside the hotel's back doors.
