This smaller, classier extension of Madison Square Garden has better sound than the arena. The theater has hosted world-music celebrations, mainstream hip-hop shows, R&B extravaganzas and medium-size rock shows with Radiohead, Melissa Etheridge and Van Morrison.

Formerly known as the Felt Forum, the Theater at Madison Square Garden is a decent sized venue in the basement of Madison Square Garden. Fans gets a much more intimate show at this venue with each seat still giving the person a good view of the show. There is a small general admission area in front of the stage as well. The theater has a host of uses outside of concerts including boxing matches, basketball games, musicals, and stand up comedy. I have only seen concerts here, including the legendary Slayer show, in which fans ripped the seats out and destroyed the venue. The band was not invited back for another 20 years, but did play a show their recently with no destruction.
