Moody Theatre at ACL Live Info
The home for Austin City Limits Live as well as one of Austin's most popular concert venues. Being a top venue to see a concert says a lot with Austin being known as the "Live Music Capital of the World." The theatre holds 2,750 fans, over 9 times what was able to fit in the old ACL space at the University of Texas. In addition to ACL, the venue hosts some of the biggest shows to come through Austin, while giving a small-venue vibe at the same time. It's not as large as the Moody Center (at UT), Moody Amphitheater (in Waterloo Park) or the Amphitheatre at COTA, which means that fans love the intimacy of this venue.
Big stars from the past and present play the Moody Theater including Billie Eilish, the Foo Fighters, Jimmy Vaughn, John Fogerty, Kacey Musgraves, Kane Brown, Robert Earl Keen, Robert Plant and Willie Nelson to name a few. The schedule of shows is listed here including the artist, date and time. There are shows that play at ACL Moody every year, which the fans come back to see every time. The concerts listed here are the public concerts at ACL Moody, not the Austin City Limits tapings which are not resold.
The venue has three levels: floor, mezzanine, and balcony. Sometimes the floor has assigned seating with lettered rows, while other times it will be general admission. Look at ticket listings or call if you want more information on that. Food and beverages can be purchased at every level, as well as the large bar in the outdoor area before every show. The venue has some of the best acoustics of any we've seen and due to the $2.5 million donation from the Moody Foundation to KLRU for the equipment, it's likely one of the best sounding venues in the country. There is limited parking available to purchase.
