Beacon Theatre

2124 Broadway

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 hundreds of times), Radiohead, Bryan Ferry, and many more. Beacon Theatre is accessible by subway; get the 1/2/3 train to 72nd Street.
