318 E. Congress St., Tucson
HOURS: Box office Mon.–Fri. noon–6 p.m.
A cool old theater with a balcony, The Rialto regularly hosts the best alt-rock and alt-country touring bands—acts like Ryan Adams, Son Volt, the Drive-By Truckers, and Shooter Jennings.
Across Congress Street from the Hotel Congress downtown, the theater originally opened in 1920. Now it operates as a nonprofit organization showing the best concerts in town.
If you’re a serious fan of music—rock, hip-hop, alternative rock, and alt-country—don’t come to Tucson without checking the Rialto’s website first; you just might find that there’s someone coming that you want to see.
