Phoenix New Times' Description

The venerated Celebrity Theatre is truly unequaled amongst Valley concert venues, not only for its unique theatre-in-the-round setup, where no seat is more than 70 feet from the action, and rotating stage, but also because a big chunk of local music history has taken place within its walls over the past 50 years. Since opening in 1963, the 2650-seat venue is currently one of the longest-running concert halls in Phoenix and has featured gigs by some of the biggest names from the pantheon of rock ‘n’ roll. The late Frank Zappa, for instance, put on a memorable performance with the Mothers of Invention in 1974, while Guns ‘N’ Roses visited during the apex of the hair metal era in 1988, and Limp Bizkit took over the joint just prior to the beginning of the late-1990s nu-metal boom. The Celebrity has also hosted such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, and Chris Rock during its five decades of existence.

    GRACE POTTER IS SOOO AMAZING. SAW HER AT THE CELEBRITY THEATRE LAST NIGHT.
    I HAVE GONE TO CONCERTS AT THE CELEBRITY SINCE 1969 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN (AT LEAST NOT THAT I CAN REMEMBER) THE MAGIC AND ENERGY SHE INSPIRED LAST NIGHT.
    CAN'T STOP TELLING PEOPLE HOW GREAT THE SHOW WAS. OF COURSE THE CELEBRITY IS THE IDEAL VENUE FOR HER AND HER AMAZING BAND. LOVE YOU GRACE POTTER!!

    If you've never experienced a theater in the round, get thee hence to the Celebrity. It's got a rotating stage that's great for everything from stand-up comedy to death metal concerts, and not a bad seat in the house. It's cozier than most big-time venues, and it makes for a much more intimate and memorable concert experience. The Celebrity is a Valley treasure, and I hope it... More >>

    The bar here is sooo slow! Give your self a lot of time or download the celebrity theater app to have drinks brought to your seat.

    Parking is typically $5.00 per vehicle & the lot attendants accept cash only.
