Cain's is a tiny, smoke ridden venue notorious for letting anything go. The place has INCREDIBLE acoustics, and you are sure to see your favorite bands really really enjoying playing this venue.. For several reasons, this is where the local night scene gets its exposure, people don't come here to just stand and politely clap, No. Here you will find... More

This will be brief but to the point. They don't have places like this venue anymore.This was the home of Bob Wills and now you can see some of today's hottest's acts up close and personal. No fine dinning no marble bathrooms no champagne VIP just one of the best music venues in the world PERIOD!!

Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys - house that Bob built. Seen many bands here, from The Reverend Horton Heat to KoRn. Great venue, love the bouncy floor - just needs some work on the ventilation during the summer. It's a b@#S%rd. But great place to see a show!

They put on great shows and you can feel the history in the building. For a hot, sweaty, SRO, rock show the Cains is the only place in the world to go.

My wife and I recently attended the Cancer Sucks concert at the Cain's Ballroom and saw five bands, to include Saving Abel and Texas Hippie Coalition. Being winter, we didn't have to fight for parking with people attending a Drillers baseball game. So, we parked within 200 feet of the door. NOTE: There are no chairs - you are standing... More

I don't go to many concerts, but when I do they always have great shows and it's fun to be in the atmosphere there.

Cain's Ballroom is a neat looking place with a lot of history. If you love concerts and that's what you do, I'm sure you'll have a good time. If you haven't been before, just keep in mind that Cain's is a big open dance floor where a sell out is something like 2,500 people - so it's not a small... More

If you come to Tulsa, for any reason, make it to Cain's and see any band playing there. It's not always who you're seeing, but more what you're experiencing. This is a Musical National Landmark. It's no wonder so many acts ask to play at Cain's

This is a great venue for concerts and they have different music. It can be anything from Country to Rock. People are friendly and the place is well known around here. The only thing I don't like is you have to stand up and if you have medical issues like I do and you can't stand very long it isn't... More
