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.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

July 5, 2016

With his trademark devil-may-care swagger, Noel Gallagher most often sets tongues wagging for speaking his mind, public spats and family feuds. The Brit rock progenitor is set to hit the headlines again, but this time he's setting out on tour under his solo moniker Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, a star-studded, psychedelic alt-rock outfit that's back with a vengeance.

Eddie Izzard

star 1star 2star 3star 4star 4.5

July 22-23, 2016

The British comedian is often lauded as one of the most influential comics of the last two decades so any chance to see him in his original guise, doing stand-up, live, should be grasped with both hands. In 2011 Izzard turned talking "Bollocks" into an art form performed and sold out Madison Square Garden in New York. FORCE MAJEURE has been his most extensive comedy tour ever, and it continues its mammoth journey around the globe in 2016!

Alice In Chains

July 25-26, 2016

One of the most successful alternative rock act of the 1990s, Alice in Chains may have been grouped together with grunge greats Nirvana and Soundgarden, but they always boasted a harder metal edge than their contemporaries. Their greatest success came in 1992 with the album Dirt, which included the iconic singles 'Would?' and 'Rooster'.

Bryan Ferry

July 27-29, 2016

As the sartorially elegant front-man of Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry's rich, innovate and stylistic songs have become as iconic as the man himself, with themes that invoke hopeless romance and futurism, with an undeniably nostalgic ribbon running through them.
