Theaters and Shows
Tennessee is host to countless Gatlinburg shows, concerts and live music events. Known for being a premier tourist destination in the South, Gatlinburg live music and shows have become staples in the mountain resort city’s cultural heritage and tourism industry.
The Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre and Music Hall is probably the most well-known of all the concert halls and theatres that feature Gatlinburg live music and other entertainment shows. In fact, it is widely regarded as “Gatlinburg’s top entertainment attraction.” Named after a young girl gruesomely murdered in 1867, Sweet Fanny Adams has become synonymous with the phrases “nothing at all” and “sweet nothings.” In Gatlinburg, the mere mention of Sweet Fanny Adams will have you thinking of hilarious comedy shows and live concerts, especially country music performances. The theatre first opened its doors in 1977 and has since provided foot-stomping Gatlinburg live music and solicited a million laughs with its outrageous Gatlinburg shows. To date, the Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre and Music Hall is now among Gatlinburg’s National Historical Treasures.
Another popular site for Gatlinburg shows is the Jon Dee’s Hypnotized Comedy Show, which calls itself the “world’s only permanent comedy hypnosis theatre.” Here, chosen members of the audience become part of the show. Common folks and tourists are put in a trance and made to perform different hilarious tricks including clucking like chickens and talking in an unintelligible language. Among the many Gatlinburg shows in the city, Jon Dee’s Hypnotized Comedy Show is perhaps one of the best and most enduring. What makes it funnier and more memorable is that you or a friend of yours can be the star of the show.
