This is a beautiful theatre with amazing acoustics. Entering and exiting the parking ramp is the ONLY negative to the experience.

We saw Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons there. Even though we were pretty far back, it's way better than going to an arena to see a concert. There really are no bad seats.

Wanted to see a show at this theatre but nothing on during my visit. The largest theatre in Detroit with over 5,000 seats. Attractive exterior appearance especially at night.

Great concert venue. The music sounds good and you can see well from any seat. I've been more than 25 concerts here easy and never had a bad time. Check it out.

We attended the taping of Wait! Wait! Don't Tell me, the NPR news program. We were very disappointed with the results. At least 4x during the taping, electronics failed to host and participants. Me thinks there was no sound check. Very unprofessional. At least 2x...More

We were lucky enough to get tickets to John Oliver and had never been to the Fox Theatre before. I had no idea the amazing beauty we would experience in this building. I thought Toronto had some beautiful theatres but nothing compares to this. The...More

We did not sit there but from what we saw, it was a perfect view. It also lends itself to a pampered show - don't see where one could go wrong with such an extravagant gift.
