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.

Tyler Perry's Madea On The Run

September 3-6, 2015

The madcap adventures of everyone's favourite fiery grandma are back! Mabel Simmons, affectionately known as Madea, isn't your regular sweet little old lady... The streetwise, fast-talking, gun-toting matriarch proves to be one of Tyler Perry's most beloved characters and the first of its type. In Madea On The Run, Perry once again dons the legendary persona to bring her delightful histrionics to stages throughout the US. There are hilarious hijinks aplenty, so get ready to laugh till your sides ache!

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell

September 15, 2015

"I first heard Rodney on a demo tape in 1974 and knew immediately from his voice and lyrics he had the right stuff" says Emmylou Harris of longtime friend and collaborator Rodney Crowell. After the success of their 2013 album of classic duets, Old Yellow Moon, they have come together once more to blend their voices in a perfect harmony on new record The Travelling Kind and are playing a series of special shows together to celebrate!

Neil DeGrasse Tyson

September 21, 2015

Astrophysicist, author and renowned science communicator with the flair of a stand up comedian, Neil DeGrass Tyson hosts a special performance where he will be discussing, among other things, the science and philosophy behind his update of Carl Sagan's immensley popular show, 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey'.

Of Monsters and Men

September 22-23, 2015

A bouncy six piece outfit hailing from Iceland, with songs infused with more color than the aurora borealis, they deal in infectiously indie-folk filled choruses, that give way to triumphant anthems, whilst taking you along for the ride. After winning a battle of the bands in their native Reykjavik, their debut record 'My Head is an Animal' became a world-wide hit, with lead single 'Little Talks' cementing their place in the mainstream.

Tedeschi Trucks Band & Charles Bradley

September 26, 2015

After many years on the road building separate, successful solo careers, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi have united to form a new band with an extended pool of collaborators and friends. The Tedeschi Trucks Band is the result of their union - an 11-strong Blues band that has become a force to be reckoned with!
