Radio City & Lincoln Center Announce Partnership For Backstage Tours



MSG Entertainment and Lincoln Center have announced a new partnership and combo package of two of its behind-the-scenes tours. Radio City Music Hall's Stage Door Tour and Lincoln Center's Guided Tour are two ‘must-see' attractions for all New Yorkers as well as visitors to the Big Apple.

Beginning today, New York patrons and visitors have the opportunity to purchase a combo tour ticket at either venue to capture a rare look into two world-famous performing arts locations - at a considerable saving. The Stage Door Tour at Radio City Music Hall allows guests to experience, from a unique vantage point, the legendary theater where many of the world's finest entertainers have graced the Great Stage and delighted audiences for more than 75 years. Lincoln Center's Guided Tour explores its iconic venues, the recent transformation of its 16 acre campus, and its world-class art and architecture.


The Radio City Stage Door Tour is a one-hour walking tour, led by enthusiastic and expertly trained tour guides, and offers an interactive experience while visiting the venue. Guests will explore the stunning Art Deco interior, learn the secrets and history of the Great Stage (one of the largest indoor performance stages in the world), and walk through the lavish private apartment of "Roxy" Rothafel, known as The Roxy Suite. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet one of the world-famous Radio City Rockettes ®, stars of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and take part in a Radio City Rockette kick-line through an interactive photo opportunity.


The Lincoln Center Guided Tour offers an hour-long journey through its iconic venues and performance spaces. The tour examines the buildings, theater interiors and public spaces designed by visionary architects. It encompasses Lincoln Center's critically acclaimed redevelopment project and the innovative concepts and designs by the architecture firm that led the project. Armed with encyclopedic knowledge, interesting anecdotes, and a passion for the arts, the tour guides trace Lincoln Center's past, present, and future with an inside look at what makes the Center tick.

The tour includes visits to up to three of these renowned theaters: the Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Hall, the David H. Koch Theater (previously the New York State Theater), the Vivian Beaumont Theater, and the dramatically transformed AlIce Tully Hall. A sneak peek at a rehearsal is also included whenever possible.

Don't miss the chance to take the Radio City Stage Door Tour and Lincoln Center's Guided Tour to experience both venues, up close and personal.
