I was once saw a gig there by someone from the Bad Seeds, but they keep sending me spam for years, and there is NO clickable unsubscribe option.

Thebbie Theatre is a fabulous venue for a rock concert. There are gorgeous comfortable chairs upstairs for those of us with old tapping feet, and plenty of space downstairs for the young ones.

In this year of its 90th birthday on Sunday 29.7.18, Thebarton Theatre was inducted into the South Australian Hall of Fame for its service to live music - local, national & international. It's role in providing a fantastic venue for other forms of entertainment was also acknowledged. This special event was marked by a full house concert of 30+ top class performers who have played & loved this venue over the past decades finishing with The Angels performing 'Am I ever going to see your face again' with full volume & audience participation. The acoustics in this Theatre are wonderful as evident with acts ranging from Led Zeppelin cover band The Zep Boys to Kelly Menhennet's solo with just her guitar as accompaniment. Long may this venue continue in it's basic but flexible style.

We came to see Jimmy Barnes - the venue itself is a fabulous for music and events. Magnificent old building that it’s great to see still being used today.
However the seating area in the stalls is ludicrous. Everyone was so squashed in, I had to sit on an angle in between two men. During the intermission, the couple sitting next to us ended up leaving their seats to stand on the aisle side for the rest of the show as it was just far too uncomfortable. Considering the amount of money people pay to see artists, the need of having to stand is completely unfair. Seeing grown men sitting shoulder to shoulder with their knees together was crazy.

Came here during the Fringe to see an old favourite, Ross Noble and was certainly not disappointed. Apprehensive about seeing Ross in a larger venue than I'm used to but I shouldn't have worried. What a fantastic venue - cosy, comfortable and we had those fabulous sofa seats so perfect for date night!
