This spacious former vaudeville theater, resplendent after a recent renovation, hosts a variety of popular acts, from Steely Dan to Ryan Adams. While the vastness can seem daunting for performers and audience members alike, the gaudy interior and uptown location make you feel as though you’re having a real night out on the town.

After years of never seeing a performance in this venue, I finally saw a show at "The Beacon". Situated in the Upper West Side, this theater was impressive visually as well as audibly. Emphasis on theater, this place certainly has its share of glitz and gold, but not tacky. In between sets I was able to move towards the stage and gaze upwards. The detail was phenomenal and the there appeared to be 3 balconies above. The sound was was equally impressive and for the band that I saw, Opeth, it was incredible to hear their complex song structure clearly. Hoping that it will not take another 25 years until I see a follow up show at this location. Perhaps I should start liking the Allman Brothers?
