The Rialto is an incredible venue! The acoustics are some of the best I have ever heard and the staff and community supporting the theatre is wonderful. Proud to be part of such a wonderful music community!

Rialto Theatre has the perfect layout for watching a band like Lord Huron. The floor inclines from front of the stage to the back which makes it perfect for general admission because you can see the stage over the head of the person in front of you. However, it was pretty warm in the theatre. I understand that it's summer... More

Went to a concert here last night. Enjoyed Acoustic Alchemy, one of my favorites. The band as usual was amazing. The best music....the problem is that this is a really old theatre and I'm not sure if they have air conditioning or not. It was distracting to the concert to be sitting in a very hot theatre. Everyone was constantly... More

I went to see a DJ named Feed Me back in September here. While I don't much care for the music I was seeing, the sound with this type of act was still spectacular. This place has character that lacks in many venues these days. You get the feeling when you see the sign outside that this is the place... More

It was my first time attending a concert at this venue, and I absolutely loved the feel that you get from this place. The sound is fabulous and not distorted or overpowering from where I was standing. This venue felt like it was just the right size to where you can connect with the music and the musicians and they... More

Went to a concert there and was quite pleased with the sound and the ambience. It is located in historic downtown Tucson and surrounded by great restaurants.

First time at the Rialto. The sound system was fabulous. We went to see MARCHFORTH MARCHING BAND. The Haymarket Squares were the warm-up band. They were a blue grass band with a good sound. However, after the first song, they all sounded the same (the ones they had written) and they were all making a political statement. Got old fast... More

Went to a concert at Rialto. Bebel Gilberto. Had read good reviews of her; supposedly been nominated multiple times for Grammies. Well, this was absolutely the WORST concert I have ever been to. She was awful. Off key, did not seem like she could really sing. Bad news. We left after 1/2 hour. Friends who came with us left before... More

The Rialto Theatee in the heart of downtown Tucson, AZ, is a great venue. First time at this venue and we were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, charm, and old-time downtown feel. Walkable to many restaurants after the show. A must see !!

It's an excellent small, intimate theater, with a balcony that overlooks the stage. Great place to see a show, without being crushed by the crowd and actually see the players, instead of watching them on a big screen. Have been several times and have never been disappointed. Rodrigo y Gabriela was one of the best concerts of my life!

Thank Jimmie54
