I meant to google all the famous artists that have performed at this eclectic venue but I just haven't had the time. But I remember seeing Elvis Costello here in the '80s and my parents saw Bob Dylan here in the 70s. Gone With The Wind premiered here. I went to a concert in the Egyptian Ballroom. It was very...

Our awards ceremony was held at the Fox Theatre directly across from the Georgian Terrace Hotel. The staff did an amazing job and the event was beautiful

I totally agree with Walter. I was SO excited to go and see "places the usual tour never goes". The tour cost $25 and lasted about 20 minutes. (I had asked if the tour last only 20 minutes, and was told no, that was only for timing so the tours could be spaced out.) When it started, they had those... More

OK, we have been on numerous Ghost tours so we jumped at this one because we love the Fox. The highlight of the tour is that you get to go onstage. As far as a Ghost tour is concerned..can you say Dud! Our guide was one of their tour guides for Fox theater tours, but as for giving a Ghost... More

Growing up in Atlanta, the Fabulous Fox Theater is an inescapable part of your cultural identity. From concerts to comedians, symphonies to musicals, this is the best venue to see it at. Beautiful inside and out, it's one of the things I miss the most when life takes me to another city for awhile.

We saw Aussie Pink Floyd in this amazingly historical theater last night. I love the Fox and have been to many events here. It never ceases to please in all arenas. Part of the wonderful music was the fact that the concert was held in such a gorgeous atmosphere makes it all the better. The building has been renovated and... More

The Fox Theatre was originally intended to serve as headquarters for the Shriners - the Yaarab Shrine Temple - and was funded in part by a 21-yr lease to movie mogul William Fox. This is a former movie palace that was built in the '20's and originally opened in 1929, that was revitalized in the '70's and '80's. The Fabulous... More

The Fox is completely fabulous! Fantastic décor! So glad this gr and old theatre was saved. The acoustics are excellent and just being there is a trip! We thoroughly enjoyed this production of Mama Mia.

One of my favorite experiences is to visit the Fox for a play or concert. Most recent visit was to see Mama Mia. It is a gorgeous theater and the ambiance can't be beat. It's a place you never tire of and I look forward to returning for the next play in the season ticket line-up.

Love the atmosphere. Love the ambiance. Some seating is not so good but front row in the balcony is the best.
