    Great Sound and Friendly staff
    Went to this theatre for the Nick Cave concert - which was brilliant. Comfortable seats, great sound and really friendly staff. Drinks expensive. The shame is getting to the theatre and the poor homeless and addicted people that seem to fill the streets of Austin,

    Perfect venue great sound
    Moody theater has a great sound system and no bad seats. Seating is very comfortable with adequate spacing. Walk up the stairs to upper seating could be a challenge for some people, but I do think they have an elevator. Great place to see live music. Drinks are pricey!!

Saw Madonna play here last night and I have never sweat so much at an indoor venue. Every single person was dripping in sweat. It made trying to enjoy the concert pretty miserable. Will definitely never spend hundreds of dollars to see a show there again.

Moody Theater is a state-of-the-art event center that is perfect for those that visit Austin and want live music entertainment. In the photo, a local Austin group, The Pictures Band are performing for a company that is celebrating their business with a client appreciation party.

Whether or not your a fan of Austin City Limits, you'll definitely enjoy this 90 minute guided tour of The Moody Theater where ACL is filmed. This history, the stories and the magnitude of what it takes to put on a concert, film an episode of ACL or host a private party is incredible. The photo gallery is a favorite with iconic photos by Scott Newton and Jim Marshall.

This lovely building was completed in February 2011 and is now the permanent home of the PPS Austin City Limits television show. Before entering the theater, we walk past a bronze statue of Willie Nelson and ascend the stairs to an outdoor patio, overlooking downtown Austin it has a nice bar where we mingled with other patrons and had pre-show drinks. Its lobby is lined with large photos of artists that have played here in the past.
Now after over a year of silence caused by covid 19, the Moody Theater is once again open for live shows, the first being “The Mavericks”, and we had tickets for one of the first opening night shows.
The theater holds 2750 fans but on this night there were only half that number of fans admitted, and we were sitting in alternative rows occupying every other seat, from our front row balcony location we had a great view of the stage, and fellow fans. Tonight’s band was playing a mixture of Tex-Mex, neotraditional country, Latin, and rockabilly music.
It was a night to remember, with the safe distance seating creating the feeling of being in a nightclub, allowing the music to resonate all around us. After a year of virtual playing the band really let loose, starting with their opening song “Here comes the sun” from the Beatles, they just seemed to get better and better. Playing many old favorites, plus quite a few new songs from their latest Spanish CD. At the end of the concert even with a reduced audience, the applause was deafening. This is a fantastic music venue there is not a bad set in the house.
Will certainly visit again next time we are in Austin.

TIP: With the limited seating do call ahead and make a reservation.
