We went there to see Tony Bennett. ( He was great!) For pure extravagance the theatre is absolutely gorgeous. All the seats appeared to have a great view and sound quality. The staff were very helpful in directing people also. I guess the only negatives were they now have metal detectors at every door which when you are entertaining a... More

We'd not been to the Fox Theatre in many years and were invited to attend the Tony Bennett show. We were part of a Suite that was exceptional. A buffet dinner was available with good buffet type food. The suite was very comfortable and made the show extra special. This theatre is restored to it's original condition and an incredible...

This theatre has been lavishly restored. An absolutely beautiful auditorium with, I thought, amazing acoustics.

I hadn't been to the Fox in many years and had the pleasure of watching Riverdance here. The theatre has been very well maintained and has kept all of it's old and unique features intact, while appearing as if it is as new ad the day it was opened. We had mezzanine seats, which afforded us the perfect view of... More

We saw Beck perform here last year and it was an incredible experience. Spur of the moment decision to see the show in Detroit instead of nearby Toronto, but the gods smiled on us for making the trip. The architecture and acoustics in this theatre are second to none and we have since subscribed to their performance schedule. Great neighbourhood... More

Went to the Fox Theatre to see Beauty and the Beast and I have to say that overall the experience was amazing. The theatre is stunning. My group and I sat in the back right of the theatre and we could still see the show rather well. The seats are small so if you are not the size of a... More

We have come to this venue for a number of shows, although mainly comedy like Bill Maher, Kathy Griffin, Brian Regan. All the same, we like the fact they allow for pre-parking when you buy the tickets to make your experience more enjoyable. Once you're in the venue, the service has always been fast and friendly. Despite the reputation of... More

The Fox Theatre of Detroit is a theatre I hold near and dear to my heart, as this is where I once saw The Sound of Music, and Sesame Street: Live when I was a child. To this day it is still gorgeous, and I would be happy to see a performance there any day.

Went to see a concert there. The venue is absolutely beautiful, gorgeous, awe-inspiring, breath-taking. One of a kind historic architecture and wonderfully preserved. There are no bad seats in the house. We were pretty high up and could still see everything perfectly. Great climate control, was nice and cool. Went in winter a few years ago and it was warm....
