Radio City Music Hall showing a city and signage

Join the millions of people who have seen a show at this beautiful and historic venue, which is a marvel of modernist architecture and design.

See a show at one of New York City’s most iconic performance venues, Radio City Music Hall, to get a sense of the glitz and glamour of the city’s famous showbiz scene. This is a remarkable destination for lovers of film, music, comedy and drama. The building itself is simply stunning inside and out.

The venue was established in 1932 by John D. Rockefeller Jr. of the famous Rockefeller family, a major U.S. business dynasty. It stands within the Rockefeller Center, which consists of 19 impressive skyscrapers. Look up at the instantly recognizable fluorescent sign on the outside of the music hall and see how well it conveys a sense of early 20th-century charm. Step inside the building and admire the incredible interior, which has been declared a protected national landmark. The sweeping staircase and red walls of the Grand Foyer have offered the setting for countless upscale film and theater parties, premieres and other events over the decades. Meanwhile, the auditorium is simple yet stylish, with even more red set off with gold accents.

Attend a performance here. As you watch, remember you are looking at the same stage where countless icons have performed over the decades. In the past, Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli, Ella Fitzgerald and many others have appeared here. Today performing at Radio City Music Hall remains a crucial milestone for many musicians, comedians and actors who are on their way to major stardom. The venue has also long been a popular choice for movie premieres. Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Lion King are among the famous pictures that have held their opening nights here.

Book tickets in advance for any show at Radio City Music Hall, as performances here are in great demand. Select from something wonderful at any time of year. Experience the venue’s most renowned and enduring show at Christmas time when the famous Christmas Spectacular show lights up the stage, drawing about 1 million visitors during each annual run.
