The Strand Ballroom & Theatre is back after originally opening over 100 years ago on June 12, 1915 and is currently Providence Rhode Island’s oldest theatre. For the last 14 years, The Strand has most recently been the home of the historic Lupos Heartbreak Hotel and Roxy Providence.
The all new Strand Ballroom & Theatre is set to launch September 2017 and will be bringing in the best national/international acts and tours of all genres back to Providence. The stage has hosted a wide range of musical and variety acts over the years such as icons like Johnny Cash, Ice Cube, Kings Of Leon, Oasis, Notorious B.I.G., Pantera, Kendrick Lamar, The Strokes, and even way back in its earlier days The Three Stooges.
In keeping with a long tradition of presenting unique and amazing talent, The Strand’s entertainment will include the best acts from rock, blues, hip hop, Americana, country, latin, edm, metal, funk, live comedy and more!
The Theatre’s renovations are extensive for both inside and outside of the building and have been made to create the ultimate event experience. There is a brand new raised stage and also previous obstructions on the ground have been removed, in order to give customers the best possible site views to the stage. The stage will have a brand new state-of-the-art sound and lighting system. Artists will have all new dressing rooms to better accommodate their visit. Patrons can enjoy upgraded mezzanine and balcony seating, remodeled VIP areas, multi leveled open room format as well as brand new restrooms and so much more. The Theatre will also soon be receiving a facelift on the front of the building with a new marquee to be installed by December of 2017.
