17. I am a parent and am extremely concerned about letting my child go to a show there. Make me feel better.
Sorry, only you can decide if going to a concert is appropriate for your child. We are an all ages venue and have very strict wristband policies and strictly enforce the legal drinking age. You can always stop down and take a look around and see the Marquee for yourself, or even better, share the excitement of going to a concert with your child.

Yes! We have full service bars inside the Marquee. One in the main auditorium to the left of the stage, and one in the lobby and one in our smoking patio.

Our policy is that you are allowed to bring in cameras. However, that may differ from the bands policy and the bands policy wins.

We do not allow tablets or iPads to be used as cameras.

28. Can I bring my gun, brass knuckles, knife, wallet chain, caribiner, gum, sharpies, to the concert?
We apologize about having to make patrons take off their shoes, empty their pockets, open their purses but you would be surprised what some people try to bring in to shows…We want all partrons to have an enjoyable time at the Marquee… But, due to the extent that some of these items can be used as weapons, we cannot have them in the theatre. We do not allow any items / actions that challenges public safety. When you come to a show you are always given the option of returning such items to your car, but if you elect not to do so, we take the items and do not return them, no matter how much crap you give us. Also, we do not allow gum because of the amount of used gum that winds up on our floors, windows, walls. Also, we do not allow sharpies since our bathroom stalls get marked up routinely with obscene and or gang related language.
29. Will you call me a taxi?
Absolutely! Ask anyone at the main entrance and we will make it our first priority. Cab service in Tempe is reliable and safe. We normally have Discount Cab Company have a staging area in our parking lot at the conclusion of most events.
30. Is there public transportation available to patrons?
Yes, there is a light rail stop to the northwest of the Marquee Theatre on Washington Street west of Mill Ave. There is also a bus stop on Mill Ave south of Washington Street.
31. When will the show end?
Ah, if only we had a crystal showtime ball. The end of a set is at the discretion of the performing act (although we contract them for a minimum set length – anywhere from 45 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the act). This is a question we usually cannot answer. For some events that run late, Our curfew for events to end is usually 130am and all patrons must exit venue by 2am.
32. Have you seen my husband? He’s 6 foot, gray hair, red shirt…
It is difficult for us to locate people in large crowds. Unless there is a true emergency, we are unable to page customers or make announcements. You may want to prearrange a meeting place with your group (i.e., next to merch booth at 10:15pm) or try setting your cell phone to “vibrate” so that you can be contacted during the show if necessary.
33. Whats the deal with the balcony?
We recently completed construction on our balcony giving patrons a VIP experience of watching the concert. The balcony is 21+ only and general admission. It is only open on select shows. For more info contact the Marquee box office for availability and pricing.
