Several years ago the Fox Theatre was refurbished and all Detroit was excited. This was my first time going to the Fox in more than a decade and while I loved the design and acoustics, I was extremely disappointed in the upkeep and cleanliness. The seats need to be cleaned, badly, the floor was sticky and covered with popcorn where... More

The Fox Theatre is one of the most beautiful, historic venues in Detroit, Michigan. They present first class entertainment. Seating on the first row of the mezzanine is outstanding as there is more leg room available. Parking is conveniently located both across Woodward Avenue and in the Fox Parking Garage, directly across Montcalm from the theatre. A "must visit" when... More

We love going to the Fox Theatre for concerts or the different musicals they have there. The Fox is very gorgeous inside. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The only bad thing is the prices of the amenities are extremely overpriced. Especially if you have to pay a lot for a ticket, $4 for soda is a little ridiculous.

I went to see Il Divo in concert there this past Sunday 10/16 and this place was a marvel. The high ceilings and the craftmanship that has gone into this place.. I would love to come back to take the tour. Truly amazing..

My husband and I had bought my mom something off her bucket list. She wanted to see IL Divo in concert. We were there last night. She had so much fun. We sat in the middle on 2nd floor. Perfect but next time we will be closer. They played for 2 hr 45min. It was great.

I have be to a great number of events at this venue. No a bad seat in the house. It is wonderfully renovated to an old school majesty. I recommend this as one of the top concert theaters in the country.
