  • Wow! Went to see Drew and Ellie Holcomb the other night for a date night. What a wonderful experience. The staff was so helpful with drinks and with helping us find our seats. I even have to brag on the woman who cleaned the bathrooms. They were spotless, and she was nothing but kind and nice. That's hard to find in humanity these days. So, way to go, Tennessee Theatre! The last memory I have there was many moons ago, seeing Breakfast at Tiffany's with my mother and grandmother. Tonight brought back all the happy feels😃 Thank you for another great experience, and for making Knoxville proud!
  • We saw a concert here last week and the venue is AMAZING! The staff is so friendly and helpful and the acoustics in this building are wonderful. I encourage everyone to go at least once to see the venue if your choice. You will not be disappointed!!
