When it isn’t playing host to thousands of screaming fans during Celtics and Bruins games, the TD Garden is one of New England’s premier concert venues.  Since it replaced the original Boston Garden in 1995, the TD Garden has been a regular destination for many of the biggest names in music.

With a maximum capacity of nearly 20,000 people, the TD Garden is home to approximately 200 events and 3.5 million fans every year.  It is widely regarded as one of the top venues in the country, Venues Today even ranked the Garden as the No. 3 arena in 2006, and the venue has won multiple industry awards for its services.
