Saw Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds live at Beacon Theatre, and it was an amazing experience. The place is beautiful and stunning with amazing atmosphere. A must see.

Saw Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds here in June. The theater is beautifully restored, the sound was amazing, and the staff were not only very professional and courteous, but really friendly too. Great place!

Beacon is a lovely building, nice seats and good views. Close to subway station (72nd St on the 1, 2 or 3). Decent leg room in most seats. Crowd management was poor at best, with staff giving conflicting instructions as people queue outside. There is...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

I've never seen him in person and probably would never but comedy shows are not my thing. I would suggest calling the theater and see if they can help you. I personally would not take my children to see him.

When I am going to a gig at The Beacon Theater I like to go to Malachy's Donegal Inn on West 72nd Street. No live music but a great wee bar.
