we enjoyed the show we saw at the Fox, Gladys Knight. Great venue as it is small and intimate. Old style of live theater. Reasonable ticket pricing. We enjoyed seats two rows from the stage, great eye contact with Gladys!

Beautiful! Attractions vary - old films, live concerts, etc. Whatever you see will be better because you saw it in this colorful, over-the-top art deco theater from the Roaring 20s.

We’ve been to many shows at the Fox Theater and have always enjoyed sitting in the balcony. They offer love seat type chairs which are very comfortable; not to mention, it lets you snuggle with your honey too. There really isn’t a bad seat in the house. I would hope that Fox Theater’s website would add a link to some... More

Gorgeous theatre maintained in the Art Deco style. Kudos to Tuscon for keeping this heritage building. Saw Roseanne Cash here. Great acoustics and sight lines even in the top balcony.

Beautifully restored theatre, and not a bad seat in the house. Always brings great shows, too. Last show we saw there was Jeff Bridges and the Abiders. Have also seen Cherish the Ladies, Twist and Shout...lots of great shows there.

I recently attended the Gladys Knight concert there and was impressed with the renovations at the theatre. It was comfortable and ideal with wine and drinks to purchase, as well as snacks. I plan to attend many more concerts there. Excellent theatre for events!

We love coming here to the Fox for various concerts and events. It has been very lovingly restored to its former glory and bygone elegance. UA Presents is using this venue more and more often for their shows, and we just saw the "Hot Sardines" there. The sound is great (much better than at Centennial Hall), and the seats upstairs...

Went for a jazz show and got 2 hours of great music from JD Souther. I have never been to a bad show at the Fox no matter where you sit it is always great. Beautiful old place with great acoustics. The first annual Jazz fest will be back.

We came for the inaugural Tucson Jazz festival and fell in love with the Fox. The two concerts we attended were completely full but the sound of the musicians came through clearly. And had very intimate feel. The art deco design was beautiful as well.

We were fortunate to hear about the Tucson Jazz Festival and decided to attend the opening night at the Fox Theatre. It was awesome. The Fox Theatre is intimate enough that there didn't seem to be a poor seat. Looks like it has been renovated recently back to its old glory. On line ticket purchase was easy. We have already...
