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 !!

I have seen many concerts here before and every time I have a lot of fun. The beer can be a bit pricy but at any venue you expect that right???

Excellent Bluegrass artist in a setting with acoustics like a small home like atmosphere. The sound was great along with lighting.

Love these kind of venues and they have so many great bands/shows that come through. Definitely check it out if in the area. Worth a trip from Phoenix if not staying in Tucson. And... Los Lobos was awesome even though some of the audience members...More
