Everyone remembers their very first concert. For example, my first concert was at the state fair. With a funnel cake in one hand and my dad's hand in the other, I saw the Jonas Brothers (Yes, it was iconic). Thus began my love for music, and more specifically, my love for live music.
While there are many music venues all across the country, from dive bars to state fairs, only one can be named the best in the state. That's where Stacker comes in. Stacker created a list of all the most iconic music venues in every state. They used "travel sites and other databases to bring you the most complete and diverse list." The compilation includes venues in major cities and remote areas, places that range in size from intimate to awe-inspiring.
The Stifel is a historic theater in downtown St. Louis that seats up to 3,100 patrons. Since opening its doors in 1934, the venue has played host to musical powerhouses Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. After undergoing a $78.7 million renovation, the theater now hosts a number of events including concerts, comedy shows, and family productions.
