About Comcast Center
Comcast Center for the Performing Arts (formerly known as "Great Woods") is a Live Nation-owned outdoor amphitheater located in Mansfield, Massachusetts, 30 miles south of Boston, Massachusetts, USA at the intersection of I-495 and Route 140. The seating capacity is approximately 19,900. Approximately 7,000 are covered seats in the pavilion, 7,000 are open-air seats, and general admission is on the lawn. It was originally known as Great Woods Performing Arts Center until 1999 when Tweeter purchased the naming rights renaming the venue; Tweeter Center for the Performing Arts. However, due to recent financial strugles and possible bankruptcy, the Tweeter Home Entertainment Group opted out of its naming contract with the venue. Beginning in the summer of 2008, Comcast purchased the naming rights officially renaming the venue; Comcast Center for the Performing Arts. Because it is an outdoor venue, the Comcast Center is generally open May through September.
