15. Radio City Music Hall in New York

You know this one: Rockettes, Christmas Spectaculars, Sinatra and Ella, Bill Cosby and Billy Crystal, iconic marquee, red-velvet seats, 60-foot arches. The midtown landmark has been a New York City fixture – one that has drawn more than 300 million customers – since tycoon John D. Rockfeller Jr. dreamed it up in 1929. What you may not know is that in addition to its glitzy tourist-trap entertainment, the Hall regularly draws some of the best tickets in music, from Leonard Cohen to Grizzly Bear to Nas.

Capacity: 6,000


Fun Fact: Thanks to judge Howard Stern, who didn't want to commute from his New York radio show to New Jersey, America's Got Talent will film here in June.
