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...

We have seen numerous shows there all excellent. They serve alcohol as well. They are assigned seating. I like the balcony best if it is in the first or second row, they are companion seats (dual).

Downtown Tucson has made an incredible turn around and the Fox theater is one of the reasons why. We saw Mark Russell here last night. He was so funny and such a joy to watch. The incredible thing is that at 82 he is still on top of his game. He knows more about what is happening in Washington then... More

If you get a chance while in town try checking out a movie here. This place has more history than just about anything in Tucson. I have built buildings around the Fox and have been in the bowels under the main building. There are tunnels that connect a lot of other places that were built an awful long time ago.... More

We've now been for the third time - the Theater itself is worth the visit. Beautifully restored old theater and the people who work there are very proud of it. It something is scheduled there that you would be interested in - go! They have live shows and also screen old movies.

We went to see Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood at the Fox recently and loved the show and the the venue. We laughed from beginning to end all from the comfort of our love seat in the balcony. The seats were excellent allowing us to see the whole theater from a nice angle. The volunteers who work the show are... More

I have never been to the Fox Theater before and wasn't sure what to expect. We were given tickets to Randy Houser so the price was great! I was concerned about downtown parking but we were able to find several parking lots on the Fox Theater we site and had no problem finding an open parking spot. The theater was... More
