The Rialto Theatee in the heart of downtown Tucson, AZ, is a great venue. First time at this venue and we were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, charm, and old-time downtown feel. Walkable to many restaurants after the show. A must see !!

Love these kind of venues and they have so many great bands/shows that come through. Definitely check it out if in the area. Worth a trip from Phoenix if not staying in Tucson. And... Los Lobos was awesome even though some of the audience members...More

My favorite Tucson venue. Alkaline Trio, Greyhound Soul, Garbage, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers, New Found Glory...more I can't even remember and many more to come! Great location and close enough to park back on 4th without walking forever.
