My wife and I recently attended the Bryan Adams Bare Bones Concert here and it was definitely the best concert we have ever been to. The sound and the atmosphere was terrific and the small venue was perfect. The building while some may say is "gaughty" has lots of character and a place worth visiting.

True, we see some new signs of life, with gutsy young people moving in, taking advantage of the cheaper property values. New stores and restaurants are great, but the amazing history imbued in the Fox is what makes Detroit special. Knowing that this... More

The detail in the the historical theatre has been fully restored. Amazing rich detail. The sound of Beck and his band were clear and reverberated in one's chest. Rockin!

The building is truly magnificent. I don't care what is playing the experience of being in the Fox is amazing. I have seen many different productions over the years and each has been memorable just due to this great venue.

I've been here many times over the years for children's shows, concerts, comedy shows, and more. I saw Janet Jackson here a few years ago, and most recently I saw The Moscow Ballet's version of The Nutcracker. It's a beautiful historic theater, one of my favorites in Downtown Detroit. It is centrally located very close to Comerica Park and HockeyTown... More

My wife and I saw Stomp this past weekend at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. We had amazing seats, 2nd row, orchestra pit, almost too close. I had to dodge some water a couple of times. What an amazing show! I HIGHLY recommend this show to anyone if you have a chance to see it. The Fox Theatre is such... More

Fox Theater was an easy in and out and it was a great show for the kids too. We had a fun time. Drinks are not cheap. The architecture in the Fox is amazing. The sound system is incredible too.
