Lowell Memorial Auditorum

50 East Merrimack St.

The Lowell Memorial Auditorium plays a starring role in the region's cultural and entertainment scene. Bill Cosby, The Irish Tenors, Tom Jones, Melissa Etheridge, Bruce Springsteen and internationally acclaimed musicals, such as Cats and Fosse, have played to sold-out audiences here. It is also the site where boxing greats Rocky Marciano and Marvelous Marvin Hagler won their first Golden Gloves championships. Grand architecture, a magnificent setting along the Concord River and elaborate renovations have made Lowell Memorial Auditorium the venue of choice in the Merrimack Valley.
