Fox Theatre Detroit Description
The Fox Theatre is a performing arts center located at 2211 Woodward Avenue in Downtown Detroit, Michigan, near the Grand Circus Park Historic District.

The area surrounding the Fox is nicknamed Foxtown.

Mitzi reviewed: Savion Glover @ Fox Theatre Detroit
I saw Mr. Glover with Bobby "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and I would really love to see him again, I have never seen a tap dancer live, and I loved Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr.. Please please think about coming to Detroit, really if you could come to my school Wayne County Community College District Downtown or Eastern Campus, I love your work, thank you.

Rkelly ive been following you and your music since ive was able to understand it. Ive never loved a man with sooo much talent like i love you.Your mother should feel sooo proud to have a son like you! Even when the media tried to break you you still stood strong and i was right here by your side. It was such a pleasure to be in you presence but when you grabbed my hand kissed it lick your tongue out singing 12 play i couldve passed out. I was telling people imma get on stage with my boyfriend thats what i call you lol and when you walked over to me you made my LIFE not my day i will never forget that. Excellent show once again those 300 dollar tickets were worth every penny. Love alway Shontae
Kent reviewed: B.B. King @ Fox Theatre Detroit
Give the fact this man has been touring almost non-stop for over 60yrs. solidifies his status as a quality performer, even to this day. Perhaps some people are forgetting he is 84yrs old, and can still play Lucille, and sing with the soul of his youth. Maybe his musical sets aren't as lengthy as they used to be, but his charm and wit as a performer and storyteller are certainly worthy of admiration. Even in large venues, he creates an atmosphere of attentive listeners. This allows the nuance of his playing and singing to shine. That is something incredible to be a part of. Buddy Guy, the opening act, a blues legend in his own right, was phenomenal as well, even though B.B. later said,"Buddy wasn't feeling well". I heard at least 4 complete songs by B.B. and a mixture of about 10 others. Go see him.
