Sat front row balcony and everything was muffled and just noise. The general admission floor patrons appeared to enjoy show. But for me, the sound system ruined a much anticipated concert to see Nathanial Rateliff and the Night Sweats. SO disappointed.

Seen many shows at the Fox. It’s a great venue. The staff is always very nice and helpful. The acoustics are great and the seating is very comfortable. Plus there are many decent restaurants in the area. Highly recommended

Saw a concert there and it seemed liked everyone had a good seat. There are no indoor mega screens, just the band to watch, which was nice.
The sound was excellent.
A few people stood up blocking views and others were smoking...inside, and the ushers didn't stop them, but someone near them must have said something.
Otherwise, a flawless event.
First Friday was happening outside...what a crowd!

Saw the Tower of Power 50th anniversary show here at the Fox. Awesome sound and a beautiful old theatre. I was a little concerned about all the standing room on the floor area but it actually really works well for music that you want to move around to. I would definitely go back!

Am impressive building with cool details. Great place to see a show or concert and sometimes even a play.
