My then fiance and I attended and thoroughly enjoyed The Hit Men concert. The renovated art deco Fox Theater is a work of art in itself, and the acoustics are great for music events. We look forward to attending more events at the Fox.

Visitors to Tucson and locals alike should not miss this spectacular Southwest, Art Deco gem in the center of Tucson's vibrant new downtown. Superb renovation and faithful refurbishment have restored the glory to this architectural treasure, in whose nostalgic seats many baby-boomer Tucsonons stole their first furtive fumbling kisses in the smoke-filled 1940's. Now a venue for great entertainment and... More

Love this theater, went to see Greg Allman Band, it was good. The painting on the ceiling and walls is entertainment unto themselves, most beautiful.

The stage and ceiling outdo whatever you're there to see, they're just so intricate and gorgeous. Great location too, right on the edge of downtown.

The original Fox was nothing more than a movie theater back 30 + years ago. It fell on hard times and was closed for over twenty years. When the thought of restoring it came to be it was like opening a time capsule, thank goodness it has been revived and now great concerts are being held there. Glad to see... More

The refurbished (after years of neglect) Fox Theatre is a treasure to behold and to see a show. The caliber of shows has improved annually and included one of the last concerts by Glen Campbell.

The venue is wonderful and selection of performers is superb for the venue. We've seen Steve Martin with Steep Canyon, James Taylor, The Hot Sardines, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, etc. All great entertainers at a perfect venue. It's small enough to be intimate, but not too small that it cannot attract terrific performers.

We live in Phoenix and this was the first time we had been to a concert at the Fox Theater in Tucson. They have a variety of concerts and events on the calendar. It was a step back in time at this beautifully renovated theater and an excellent concert. My only problem was seeing around the tall person in front... More

Whoever was responsible for the restoration of this historic theatre should have an award(s) ! Blending modern facilities and acoustics while maintaining the charm of this wonder theatre was quite a feat. If you get a chance to see a performance there, jump at it.
