at Bijou Theatre
Today, the Bijou continues to serve the city of Knoxville as one of the most
outstanding entertainment centers in the world with some of the most perfect natural acoustics in the
nation. In its era it has made its mark in the entertainment industry by presenting operas, musicals,
orchestral concerts and comedy shows. It has hosted many well-known artists such as The Marx Brothers, Anna
Pavlova, Lunt & Fontaine, Dizzy Gillespie, Dolly Parton, The Ramones, Dave Matthews Band and so many
more. The Bijou has withstood wars and fires, and throughout its many name changes and structure changes, it
has remained Knoxville's Gem of the South.
