The Beacon Theater, originally opened in 1929 as a movie theater, was designed by Chicago architect Walter W. Ahlschlager. The theater has a seating capacity of 2,894 and has three tiers. During the 1970s, the venue started to host concerts and other music events, and is now one of the leading music and entertainment venues in New York, managed by the Madison Square Garden Company. The 2011 and 2012 Tony Awards, which were broadcast on CBS-TV, were hosted at the Beacon Theater. In 1982, it joined the National Register of Historic Places, and in November 2006 the theatre was added to MSG Entertainment's family of world-class venues.

70's Soul Jam: The Stylistics & Dramatics

February 13, 2016

Calling all Seventies soul fans, as two massive acts from that golden era arrive in New York from Philadelphia and Detroit for a pair of truly sexy shows! Last seen together in New York in 2013, Stylistics once again join the Dramatics, backed up by the Manhattans! It's a smooth blend of soulful ballads, doowop and classic old-skool R'n'B, making it perfect for a date night to remember this Valentines!

Jerry Seinfeld

February 18-December 2, 2016

Brooklyn-born Jerry Seinfeld takes up residence at the Beacon Theater throughout 2016, playing one show every month. Arguably one of the greatest comedians of his time, Seinfeld has been entertaining audiences with his witty observations of the mundane little wrinkles of life since he stepped up to the mic in 1976.

2Cellos

February 19, 2016

The overnight sensations 2Cellos have delighted many audiences the world over, with their unique and energetic performances of popular hits, from Nirvana to Kings of Leon. When their rendition of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal went viral, they broke through and ended up catching a gig supporting Elton John on his tour.

Leon Bridges

March 7-9, 2016

The young Texan "Coming Home" singer is going on tour this summer in support of his debut album. The gospel and soul singer harks back to an older time, with a strong emphasis on 1960s rhythm and blues. He has gained national press attention for his work, with The Wall Street Journal describing him as a "throwback to '60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke". He also makes a point of performing in vintage clothing from the era, making his act a true throwback to nostalgic times.

Natalie Merchant

March 11-28, 2016

The former 10,000 Maniacs singer has built up a strong back catalogue since going solo in the early Nineties and her brand of acoustic-folk has earned her a number of Top 100 Billboard albums. Spring 2016 will see Merchant take her newly released album Paradise Is There on tour at a select number of dates for an intimate acoustic session.
