The Capitol Theatre (formerly the Capitol Music Hall) is the largest theatre in West Virginia and a landmark building in the national historic district of downtown Wheeling. For many years, it has served as the home of Jamboree USA and the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra. Jamboree USA, a Saturday night live country music show broadcast on WWVA 1170 AM from 1926 until 2007, was the second-longest running radio show in the United States, second only to the Grand Ole Opry. The live music show annually drew hundreds of thousands of country music fans to Wheeling, where both local acts and nationally known celebrities such as Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard and Charley Pride would perform.

  • My fiance and I saw Gary Allan here on March 25th. What an awesome show it was! An intimate setting with great acoustics. Not a bad seat in the house. The employees at this venue were amazing. Very courteous and polite. I'm hoping to drive the 4 hours to see more concerts in the future!
  • My Hubbee and I were more than pleasantly surprised how beautiful this place was when we saw Gary Allan last night. I don't think there is a bad seat. I was so afraid that we weren't going to be able to see the stage very good because we found out about the concert only a week before. Since we had never been there, we couldn't get seats as close as we would have liked. We were in Section 2, Row AA and WOW, we could see great. I mean, obviously, closer would have been better but we were still thrilled. It was a uber wonderful place to see a concert because it had such an intimate feel and great acoustics. Now, Gary Allan would be fantastic anywhere, but I'm so so so happy we saw him here.
