The Fox Tucson Theatre enlivens Tucson, fostering community growth and connections by shaping exceptional, live arts experiences in a celebrated setting. The “Crown Jewel of Downtown” will finally be reopening after the pandemic forced large in-person events to press pause. The full season’s calendar of performances and events are now posted on the Fox Tucson Theatre’s website, FoxTucson.com, and tickets for these shows went on sale to the public on June 18.
Fox Executive Director Bonnie Schock and staff have been immersed in planning for a fall return to live music, working on restoring bookings of shows that were cancelled due to the pandemic, as well as an exciting schedule of new entertainment. “It is certain to be a fantastic return of music and performance to downtown in the fall—with something for everyone,” says Schock. “Get ready for exceptional country, jazz, blues, folk and Americana, classic rock, comedy, personalities, lifelong learning, family and film experiences once again in our celebrated, uniquely Tucson setting. It’s time to return to the Fox.”
The first show back will be the Mavericks on August 19. One of the most innovative country bands in the U.S., their signature blend of Tex-Mex, neotraditional country music, Latin and rockabilly is irresistible.
A new programming structure will be introduced for the 2021/22 season, highlighting the Fox’s signature sound and aesthetics. “We’re curating a diverse collection of shows that align with what Tucson loves most about the unique acoustics, style and experience of the Fox as a venue,” says Schock. “This season and beyond will focus on artists and performance styles that soar in our space.” Named performance series categories include: Legends, Fine Vintages, Picture Palace, Global Journeys, Outburst Comedy, KIT Youth and Family and the Listening Room across genres from country to jazz, and singer-songwriter to blues.
Some confirmed bookings for September through November include: September 11 - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy; October 24 - An Evening with Amy Grant; October 28 - Paula Poundstone; November 5 - Atlanta Rhythm Section and Firefall; November 21 - Altan.
The Fox has and will continue to follow guidance of federal, state and local health officials. Per current CDC recommendations and Pima County Health Department guidance, the Fox strongly encourages all prospective patrons to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending large-scale indoor events. “In order to congregate as safely as possible once again at the Fox, public health officials have been clear in their recommendations to be fully vaccinated first,” says Schock.
