When it first opened in 1932, Radio City Music Hall was intended to be a building that would transition a neighborhood from an area known for its speakeasies into an upscale place for entertainment. What emerged was a building that would become a cultural icon, not only for its resident city of New York, NY, but for the world as a whole. Known for its high-caliber entertainment, including concerts, movies and shows, Radio City Music Hall has welcomed 300 million visitors since its inception. Many recognize it as the home of the Christmas Spectacular, an annual show full of song and dance hosted by the Rockettes, the precision dance company that has performed at the hall since 1932. It has also hosted memorable concerts by musicians such as Stevie Wonder,Sting and Bette Midler. The best Radio City Music Hall seating is available when you buy tickets at StubHub.
