Fox Theatre History

Fox Theatre is one of the most beloved and historic concert venues in the Bay Area, a part of the landscape of downtown Oakland, California since 1928. After two years of construction to create the highly ornate and Middle Eastern-influenced architecture, the Fox Theatre opened its doors to Bay Area theatergoers on October 27, 1928 as the West Coast Oakland. By 1929, the theatre was purchased by William Fox of the Fox Theatre chain, officially changing the name to the Fox Theatre Oakland. Soon, as televisions seemed to distract viewers from the silver screen, the business at the Fox Theatre dried up and was forced to close its door in 1966. After 40 years of delays and disappointment, the new and improved Fox Theatre reopened its door on February 5, 2009 thanks to an amazing group of local supporters and fundraising. What reopened is not only a completely refurbished concert venue, but a sign of a completely revamped downtown Oakland.


Fox Theatre Events Hosted

The Fox Theatre has seen some incredible shows over the years, and now that it is back in business fans are flocking to this theater on a regular basis once again. Top recording artists frequent this establishment, and the seats are often filled to capacity at the Fox Theatre these days. August will see acts like Brand New and Little Dragon hit the stage for what should be fantastic performances. September will see artists such as Interpol, Rise Against and Passenger. The Fox Theatre will surely be packed in October when Lily Allen takes center stage, or in November when Foster the People visit this historic venue. Check out the rest of the schedule to see who else is coming to the Fox.


Oakland, CA

The Fox Theatre is located in Oakland, CA. Oakland is a California city located in the San Francisco Bay area, just across the bay from San Francisco itself. Oakland was incorporated back in the 1850s and has since grown into a city that sports a population of more than 400,000 people. Oakland, also known as Oaktown and Bump City, is filled with culture, as it has great music and theater scenes. The city of Oakland is also known as a sports hub, with teams like the Major League Baseball's Oakland Athletics, the National Football League's Oakland Raiders and the National Basketball Association's Golden State Warriors calling it home.


Fox Theatre Trivia

What was the planned name for the Fox Theatre that never materialized, as those plans were changed before the venue ever opened?

The answer is The Baghdad, which was planned due to the Middle Eastern architectural style. With the inclusion of terra cotta tiles, golden artifacts and tiled roof, the theatre is an architectural marvel. This is one of those building where you can simply feel the history within its walls when you enter.


Fox Theatre Seating Layout

There is not a bad seat in the house at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, as it seats up to 2,800 people, making it a perfect venue for any type of performance. This venue sees some incredible events on a regular basis, and music fans flock to this building to enjoy the performances live and in person. If you've never seen a show at the Fox Theatre, then it's time to rectify that.
