There is never a bad seat in this place. I have been to the Fox Theatre for numerous events and it always transforms for that unique purpose. Besides that, the architecture is most amazing! Just enjoy.

I attended a concert at the Fox Theater. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but oh boy when you get inside...... The architecture is spectacular. It was hard to stop looking up at the ceiling and around at everything surrounding us. It was a fabulous place for a concert. They covered the seats up front with a fake... More

I've been seeing shows here for decades, since before they renovated the place; it's always been a top drawing venue for the best concerts in Detroit. It's gorgeous inside, although the recent gentrification of the surrounding area means you are going to pay a pretty penny to park anywhere near the establishment and watch your p's and q's when driving...

Beautiful architecture, more than you expect considering the outside of the building. Highly recommend any events there, I have been to several and they are usually well orchestrated.

This is a gorgeous theater! There's affordable parking across the street, but plan to wait at least an hour or two after a show with traffic, longer if there's a home Tigers game. Take advantage of Greektown and enjoy a late drink.

Beautiful, historic building. Great acoustics. Comfortable seating. Looks like all seats would give a good view for a concert. Cons: Old building and old plumbing. Bathroom toilet wouldn't flush and this seemed to be a common problem with a crowd. Pros: Beautiful building, plenty of drink / bars and refreshment stands in lobby.

I haven't been there for years! I forgot what a gem we have right in Detroit. I couldn't stop looking around at the beautifully refurbished interior in its original splendor. A must to see when in the Motown.

Got the priviledge to be invited for a private party in this amazing theatre, the decor is jaw dropping, it is really part of Detroit past splendour and has been beautifully preserved. It is definitely worth seeing, so much historical bling, the absolute antithesis to "less is more"...
