Located on the Upper West Side, the 2,894-seat Beacon Theatre is considered to be Radio City Music Hall's "older sister." The art deco-designed Beacon opened in 1929 as a venue for vaudeville acts, drama, opera, and movies, and is well regarded for its superior acoustics. In 2006, former President Bill Clinton celebrated his birthday with a private Rolling Stones concert. Past performers include Queen, Jerry Garcia, Allman Brothers (they have performed here 173 times), Radiohead, Bryan Ferry, and many more. Beacon Theatre is accessible by subway; get the 1/2/3 train to 72nd Street.
