The State Theater in Kalamazoo is an absolute gem. Several years ago they had a historic tour group go through the theater and they dropped the “fire screen” down for them to see it. You can see the organ is still there, restored from the old silent movie days. It is a majestic and magical place. I’ve seen so many great shows there and the acoustics are superior.
My top 5 shows there:
Tom Waits - Big Time tour
Wilco - Ghost is Born tour
Ryan Adams and the Cardinals - Easy Tiger period
The Arcangels - only tour
John Prine - Bruised Orange tour
