If you believe that historic buildings have soul, then you have been surrounded by it at The Warfield theatre in San Francisco.
In keeping with it's illustrious past, "everyone" has played The Warfield. The entertainment in the 1980's ranged from bands such as The Clash, Grateful Dead and U2, to theatrical productions such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Cantonese Opera from China. The one constant for the past 25 years has been the variety of live shows. The Jerry Garcia Band became the beloved "house band" until Garcia's death in 1995. Prince, David Bowie and the Shaolin Monks of China have graced The Warfield stage. Scenes from the movie The Doors were filmed at The Warfield and many corporate events have been hosted there.
