Very Good Medium Concert Hall

Has seating for everyone, balcony, floor seats and standing room. Sound is not over powering but balanced. Lighting depends on show apparently. You will not be disappointed!

I'm a pro concert sound technician and I went to hear one of my favorite bands. When I bought tickets online the website did not warn me that we would not have seating. The hall and sound system were fine, but the cromagnon sound technician destroyed the sound and the experience. Way too much bass, uncontrolled high frequencies made everything... More

Went to see Primus in concert, and had a great time! The floor is at an incline, so you can see the stage from anywhere. It's not huge, so it's probably not going to be a top choice for musicians with larger audiences...but it was a fun experience when I went to see Primus!

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
