Comerica Theatre History:
Comerica Theatre was originally named the Dodge Theatre. It took 15 months to complete with a grand opening in April 2002. Harry Connick Jr. was the first to play the venue closely followed by four sold out shows with Jerry Seinfeld. .
Comerica Theatre is a 5,000 seat entertainment venue located in the heart of downtown Phoenix. The unique design of Comerica Theatre has changed the way people think about live entertainment, as it marries the classic theatre style with the pulsating excitement of modern arena technologies. The theatre's state-of-the art music & sound systems are perfect for concerts, comedy performances as well as theatre and family friendly shows.
In December 2002 the Radio City Rockettes debuted in Arizona for 38 performances, bringing over 100,000 guests to downtown Phoenix. Other highlights include the filming of the comedy movie "Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie." George Lopez filmed his HBO special, "America's Mexican" live from the theatre. Tyler Perry's "Madea Goes to Jail" debuted here in Phoenix in January 2005.
Tradition continues with Moscow Ballet's great "Russian Nutcracker" every December with beautiful costumes and a cast direct from Russia.
From music to comedy to boxing, Comerica Theatre has been the home to many artists over the years as well as over 2M guests through its doors. Comerica Theatre will continue to entertain many more throughout the years.
