Radio City Music Hall Tickets
Known as one of the most prominent performance centers in the entire world, there are very few venues that can match the greatness and the reputation on Radio City Music Hall. This premier entertainment venue can be found in the Rockefeller Center area of New York City and has long been known by its nickname, the Showplace of the Nation. In addition to being a popular venue for live music performances, it is also one of the biggest tourist destinations in the entire city. In 1978 it was even named as a city landmark.
The indoor theater first opened its doors in 1932 and to this day still maintains the same historic art deco design. When it first opened as a movie theater it was the largest movie theater in the world. It has played host to numerous musicians throughout the year and some of the biggest bands in music history and is now managed by Madison Square Garden Inc. Today, those in the New York City area can find major movie premiers, such as the premiers of many of the Harry Potter Films as well as other big events such as the Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and the Tony Awards. The venue is also usually home to the NFL Draft every year and annually holds the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
Although it is one of the most popular music venues in the entire country, it provides a quite intimate setting compared to other large venues of its type. The Radio City Music Hall has 5,931 seats for spectators although additional seating can be added to bring the capacity to over 6,000 guests. The interior of the hall also features famous works from many depression-era artists and has work from the likes of Gwen Lux, Ezra Winter and Georgia O’Keeffe. The hall is also home to the largest theatre pipe organ ever built for a movie theater.
With features like this and a history that has long been tied to today’s entertainment world there is no denying the impact that the Radio City Music Hal has had on the world today. Although only select performers are allowed to perform at the venue, those who do get the honor of hosting an event at Radio City Music Hall are sure to provide an unforgettable experience in this truly unforgettable music hall.
