Best Of
The former Dodge Theatre is among downtown Phoenix’s most popular indoor concert halls. With seating for up to 5,500 people, the expansive Comerica has hosted musical artists as diverse as Doc Severinson and Nickelback, and has been home to touring companies of everything from Little Shop of Horrors to Les Miserables. Former Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks owner Jerry Colangelo originally opened the place in 2002, with an eye for hosting performers who don't need a huge sports stadium but require a space larger than small, intimate nightclubs offer. The space has therefore proven popular with big-name stand-up comics like George Lopez (whose record-breaking HBO Special, America's Mexican, was aired live at the theater) and Jay Leno. Comerica really hit the big time when it was used as the stage for the comedy film Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie, and has since regularly hosted indoor boxing events and was also the home of the 2010 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
