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

Until 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.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson

September 15, 2016

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'.

A Cat's Attic: Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens

September 19-20, 2016

Half a century ago, Cat Stevens released his first single 'I Love My Dog/Portobello Road', and in 2016 Cat (now called Yusuf Islam) is back, with an acoustic tour described as a mix of "songs, storytelling and good will".

Tom Jones

September 21, 2016

The pride of Wales, Tom Jones has been performing for over 50 years, with a staggering back catalogue of classic hits to his name. From his early hits like 'Delilah' and 'It's Not Unusual' through his pop resurgence of the 1980s with his cover of Prince's 'Kiss', Jones has never been afraid to reinvent himself.

Jackson Browne

September 25, 2016

For some, Jackson Browne is a definitive voice of the sun-soaked, mellow Southern California vibe that emanated from Laurel Canyon and spread far beyond in the mid 60s and 70s. Catch him this Summer as he tours stripped down and unplugged, with just an acoustic guitar and a magnificent back catalogue to choose from, this is an evening not to be missed!
