The Agora Theater in downtown Cleveland is a music venue known by locals simply as "The Agora." The concert hall originally opened in 1966 in Cleveland's Little Italy neighborhood. In 1967, the theater was relocated near Cleveland State University. In 1984, a fire destroyed the building and forced it to move. Since 1986, the Agora has been located on Euclid Ave. in the downtown area. During its history, the venue has hosted national touring acts such as Bruce Springstein, Kiss, Peter Frampton, and many others. It is also the home of Mushroomhead's yearly Halloween concert. The theater has a 500-person standing room only bar and 1800-person theater. Get your tickets for The Agora Theater events at StubHub now!
