Once heralded as the Showplace of the Nation, this famed Rockefeller Center venue has razzle-dazzled patrons since the 1930s with its elaborate Art Deco details, massive stage and theatrics. Though best known as the home of the Christmas Spectacular, which stars the high-kicking Rockettes and a full cast of nativity animals, many musicians consider the 6,000-seat theater a dream stage to perform on, including a recent extended stay from Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. Fans can also take a guided tour to go behind the scenes of the iconic venue and meet a Rockette ($30, seniors and students $26, group rates available).

This review is about the Radio City Tour, which I highly recommend.  It was a great behind the scenes tour of the history of the Rockettes and the actual building that is radio city and how it got its name, and when a show is in session they let you watch a little bit of it from an observation room up top which is an amazing experience!

We watched the Xmas spectacular which was a full on assault on the senses - magnificent theatre, huge in comparison to the West End of London!


If you get the chance to see a show here, do it! A true New York landmark, and the inside is gorgeous. Giant chandeliers and a beautiful theater. I saw the Rockettes here this year and it was super fun!


Great Sound Great Layout, Just recently saw JOHN FOGERTY there 1st Row . Excellent Show and Sound!! EVEN Scored a pair of Show Used Drum Sticks, Had a GREAT TIME!!



I’ve visited Radio City a couple of times.  It’s iconic and a staple in New York City.  I went there to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular during the holidays, and Janet Jackson’s private show before she launched her Up Close and Personal tour. The venue is a decent size. I prefer it over Madison Square Garden which is huge. There are no bad seats in Radio City as the seating is on an incline. No matter where you sit you will have a good view, so that’s a plus if you don’t have the money to sit right up front.  The staff is very helpful and friendly.  I always have a good experience when I go.


Huge venue - too huge - very crowded little noise or crowd control - major tourist trap - dont love this venue.
