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.

Jerry Seinfeld

Open Run

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.

Pat Metheny

June 10, 2017

Where to start with Pat Metheny? Jazz guitar pioneer and tireless musical innovator, the Missouri-born Metheny's career stretches back over forty years, during which time his stunning fusion of jazz, pop and world music has won him twenty Grammy Awards, and recently saw him become the youngest member of Downbeat's Hall of Fame (the jazz equivalent of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame).

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

June 13-14, 2017

With style that would make the devil jealous, the compelling Nick Cave is one of indie rock's most unique front-men. As the leader of The Bad Seeds, he cuts the figure of a doomed romantic anti-hero, delivering layered narratives with a maniacal fever, yet always enthralling. In a career that has spanned two decades and 16 studio albums, they continue to perform with the intensity of band half their age, ever evolving and never disappointing.

Jermaine Dupri

June 16, 2017

One of rap's most enduring figures, Dupri's career started at the tender age of 10 when he sneaked onstage during the Diana Ross show to dance with the diva live! Since then, he has worked with a plethora of music's biggest stars including Mariah Carey, Usher, Jay-Z, Nelly, Monica, Da Brat, Xscape, Janet Jackson, TLC, Aretha Franklin, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, Bow Wow, Miss Mulatto, and most recently, Nova. With success in the Nineties launching the hiphop duo Kris Kross, most of his work has been behind the scenes. He is currently co-working with Queen Latifah on the reality TV series, The Rap Game.

Diana Krall

June 21, 2017

Canadian jazz starlet Diana Krall embarks on a US tour in support of her new record, Turn Up The Quiet. The album marks the 12th studio release for the singer-songwriter, who has sold over six million albums since she released her first over 20 years ago in the early 1990s.
