San Jose Civic (San Jose, CA) - Concert Venue | Theater in San Francisco.

In 1934 the beautiful Spanish aesthetic of the San Jose Civic Auditorium was constructed, seating an impressive 3,001 people. The auditorium was able to come to fruition as a result of the joint venture between the Federal Government and San Jose residents Mr. and Mrs. T.S. Montgomery, who funded the money for the land on which the Auditorium resides.

Events at the San Jose Civic Auditorium include general assembly, performing arts, and concerts. In 2007, Mayor Chuck Reed and San Jose City Council's leadership approved a $13 million renovation, which included the refurbishment of the building’s floor, the activation of an exterior lighting system, and the installation of a state-of-the-art sound and video system. Additional improvements include serious seating upgrades, more restrooms, an interior lighting system, and a new concessions program.

The Civic has hosted a slew of celebrities, entertainers and public figures, and infamous boxing matches with Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey, and concerts at the San Jose Civic Auditorium have included The Beach Boys, The Grateful Dead, Frank Sinatra, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. In 1968, The Who even launched its first US headlining tour at the Civic.

Many popular entertainers and public figures have appeared at the venue, creating memorable historic events since its opening in 1936. Richard Nixon made national headlines during an anti-war demonstration at the San Jose Civic. Most recently, indie bands and big names in rock and rap like Beck, Interpol, Snoop Dog, and the Pixies have all played concerts at the San Jose Civic Auditorium.
