What makes the Fox special? What is the neighborhood like?
Since it was completely renovated and reopened in 2009, the Fox Theatre Pomona has staked out a reputation as one of the nicest live music venues on the west coast. It is a glamorous, architectural landmark, well-managed and safe, just big enough for a great audience experience, and just small enough for performers to personally connect with their fans. The Fox and its shows have been given high marks by the Los Angeles Times, the LA, OC, and IE Weeklies, Rolling Stone, MTV, top performers and truly dedicated music fans.
The Fox also offers much more than the rushed freeway drive, a big parking lot, and a crawl back to the freeway. The Fox Theatre is part of a historic neighborhood, the Pomona Arts Colony. They are cutting edge galleries, international cuisine, street performances, artist lofts, nightclubs, vintage shopping, funky bars, eclectic residents etc. And all of this non-corporate, mom-and-pop, and constantly experimenting. This isn't a neighborhood for posers, it is an authentic experience for people that are passionate for music and the arts. You will love the concert and exploring and the surrounding neighborhood.
I heard there was a concert coming up, but it is not listed on your website.
Bands often post upcoming performances on their websites, even though the concert has not been officially announced. The Fox can only confirm dates, create a calendar listing, and sell tickets, when the band representation authorizes publicity for the concert. Please refer regularly to our calendar page http://www.foxpomona.com/calendar_working.php for the latest information and sign up for our e-mail updates http://www.foxpomona.com/redcarpet.php so we can inform you the moment the concert is available to you. You can also go to http://www.goldenvoice.com/newsletter/ and sign up to receive information on the many Golden Voice concerts at the Fox.

What is General Admission at the Fox?
Many concerts at the Fox are General Admission. This means viewing areas (both standing-only areas and seats) are first come first serve.

There are two possibilities. First, you have a premium ticket, such as VIP seating that is numbered and assigned. This ticket must say VIP to be valid. Second, if your ticket says “GA” or “General Admission,” you do NOT have an assigned seat, even if your ticket lists row and seat numbers.
