Historic Apollo Theater
The famous Apollo Theater has been honoring and promoting the contributions of African American performers since 1934. The theater was officially designated a New York City Landmark in 1983 and welcomes 1.3 million visitors each year.
Performances to be Remembered
The Apollo Theater proudly prioritizes programming that supports culturally diverse artists based in the United States and internationally. Performers at the Apollo represent the rich diversity of New York City, notably the Harlem and upper Manhattan community.
The Apollo houses musical and dance performances and its well-known Amateur Night – a longstanding tradition that helped launch the careers of artists including Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder, and Diana Ross & The Supremes.
A visit to the Apollo Theater is sure to guarantee an intimate and engaging audience experience and memorable performance. Tickets can be purchased online through the Apollo Theater.
“The Apollo has probably exerted a greater influence on popular culture than any other entertainment venue in the world.”
