Do not buy tickets to any event at the Paradise Theater!!! I purchased tickets for a show a year ago at the box office and when the concert was cancelled they did not reimburse me. They just tell you that “someone will call you back” and they never do. Many promoters have had money stolen from them from the corrupt managers of the theater. If the upcoming concerts are cancelled good luck getting your money back from the box office. Please do not support these crooks by attending the upcoming concets.
They have only been holding concerts and boxing matches since they reopened a few years ago.
MPol, thanks for the advice. I just filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau of NY. Hopefully they have better luck than I had dealing with the theater.
Thank you for the advice Warren. I have contacted NYC 311 and the consumers affairs department but they just keep givng me the run around and send me to different agencies. I may contact the NYS Attorney General to see if they can be of any help.
The managers of the Paradise Theater are all liars and crooks. I purchased 2 tickets at the theater’s box office for the Tego Calderon concert that was cancelled on 5/24/08. The tickets totaled $150 and they have refused to give me my money back because they said “the promoter stole the money.” We all know this is a lie since numerous promoters have not been paid by the theater for their services. Everytime I call the theater they say “someone will call you back” but they never do. The manager Corey Weissman even promised me “2 tickets and VIP passes for one of our 15 upcoming fall shows” instead of reimbursing my money. Of course they have not had any shows since the cancelled concert back in May. I would like to hear from anybody else who has experienced the same problems with the theater and what the outcome was. They will eventually be sued and lose their jobs because you can’t mess with as many people that they have without having it come back to bite you in the behind. Hopefully honest business people will take over the theater and the owner/managers can go back to begging for change on the Grand Concourse.
