Great place for a concert because of the awesome sound quality you get. I saw Johnny Hallyday and Billy Connolly perform there, and they were both spectacular! The space, the sounds, and the lights gives you a closer connection between the performer and the audience, and the details of the interior gives it a nice venerable quality. I can't wait to see Tegan and Sara perform there soon!

The Beacon Theater? Not in my opinion. I see at least 2 theatrical or music events per month and can say that this is not an experience that I would pay for again. Made a late decision to purchase tickets to the Stephanie Mills / Whispers

Great place to see a show. I've been here several times, seeing everyone form WIllie Nelson, to Joan Osborne, Elvis Costello and Squeeze. Always great, memorable shows with great acoustics. Just try to get a seat close to the stage; some seats are way back, making it hard to see the stage.

This place never seems to die down with age as it is one of the most old school joints in the city. Great acts come here, whether it be comedians or concerts, and we all get to relish in the moment.

It's a nice, small theatre and all to see a concert but our seats were miserable, and there aren't many bad seats to speak of! I was seated in the upper balcony, FF, 4 and feel I must warn people...beware! These 3 seats are really for

Having seen many shows at the Beacon, I can say with some authority that it is one of the best in NYC. Whereas places Hammerstein and Irving Plaza are great places in their own right, you can actually sit in the Beacon. You can buy drink

A beautiful theatre, but rude employees and incompetent management. Need proof? Just check the non-existent website link... Be prepared for squatters in the aisles and inflated drink prices. Use the bathroom before you show up, trust

You walk into this place and you think, now this is a real theater. There's some huge statues coming out of the walls, and just a really good theater look and atmosphere. The seats are comfortable and there's lots of legroom. I saw Beck

The Beacon is easily one of the best places to hear a concert. I've seen Heart and Trans-Siberian Orchestra here and heard every note as if I was on stage. Not the greatest place for us fatties to sit though.

Now if you weigh over 140 lbs this may not be the place for you. For a venue that holds more gospel plays than any other in NYC they should know there will be a whole lot of big fat southern gals tryingt o swueeze into those little seats

Went to the Oasis concert last night at Beacon. I purchased the tickets from ticketmaster, these were last minute standing only tickets. Usually standing-only means General Admission tickets in front of the stage. It turned out that you

The Beacon is a huge piece of music history in NYC. It is a beautiful theatre. Not a bad seat in the house honestly - though getting up front in the orchestra is an out of this world experience. Was in the second row for the Gov't Mule

Although it's run by Clear Channel--the megaconglomerate that tries to ensure that every radio station and every venue in the country only supports certain mainsteam performing artists--it's possible to have sympathy for the devil when
