I have attended several concerts here and the acoustics are incredible. The Lyric is a fully restored facility that is absolutely beautiful inside.

What a beautiful place. Loved the old time feel of this theatre. Great acoustics too. I can’t believe I’ve never been here till now. A must visit while in Birmingham!

Attended a concert of a local musical group, Three on A String, December 2017. The venue is beautifully restored to its 1920s grandeur. Does not seem to be a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are excellent.

The Bacon Brothers group put on a fabulous show. They played such a variety and number of musical instruments and most of their songs were originals written mainly by Michael Bacon. The Farewell Angelina group that opened for them also were very good. The Lyric...More

When I went, I arrived a couple of hours early so I could go eat before the concert, and I had no issues getting a parking spot in the lot behind the theatre.
