Fox Theater

Opened in 1928, this C. Howard Crane architectural masterpiece became known as “the most magnificent Temple of Amusement in the World.” When you walk through the doors of the Fox you can’t help be feel immersed in its grandeur and elegance. During the '50s and '60s, you could catch musical acts like Berry Gordy’s annual Motown Review or the “King of Rock and Roll,” Elvis Presley. But as the city began to decline in the late '60s and '70s, the Fox also began fall by the wayside. Thanks to the restoration efforts of the Ilitch family during the '80s, this Detroit landmark has stood the test of time. Perhaps you were lucky enough to snag tickets to Prince’s sold out 2015 gig, or you were present during what would become Chris Cornell’s final performance with Soundgarden in 2017. There’s no denying the historic significance of this music venue.
