Former Location –
On March 25, 1967, The Who made their U.S. debut here as part of a Murray the K Rock and Roll Festival. Murray originally gained fame as a Deejay in various radio stations in the Metropolitan New York area. He produced Rock ‘n’ Roll shows three or four times a year, including the debut of the Who.
Murray the K was born Murray Kaufman and came from a show business family. He reached the peak of his popularity in the mid-1960s when he was considered the top-rated radio host in New York City. He later became an early supporter of The Beatles, and they thanked him when they came to New York on February 7, 1964 by making him the first DJ they welcomed into their circle.
The Fox was closed and demolition began on November 4, 1970.
