The Warfield or more popularly known as the Warfield Theater is a 2,250-seater building specifically located at 982 Market Street, San Francisco, California. This famous music venue has been a monumental institution in San Francisco for more than 86 years now.
Officially opened in 1992, the structure was built by the famous theatre chain owner Marcus Leow. He named the venue after his good old friend, who was during that time considered to be one of the greatest and finest silent film actors. The structure was originally used as a vaudeville and movie palace of the City. Nevertheless, in 1979, it was transformed into a hall when Bill Graham presented a show with Bob Dylan in it which lasted for an entire two straight weeks.
Since then, the venue became more famously known as an esteemed hall for rocking concerts. It even became the venue for some of the most memorable events in the industry such as Faith No More, The Killers, and Kings of Leon to Adele. It was also used for charitable events such as the Tipping Point Fundraiser and the GLIDE Memorial Church Fundraiser.
