The day after the Tower Theatre’s first show in 1972, the Philadelphia Daily News printed, “Philly finally has its Fillmore.” Indeed, in the decades since, the Tower has kept up with the esteemed New York venue not only in terms of its quality performers, but also in terms of its class. Among the legends to traipse through the chandelier-clad lobby and unleash their talents onto the double-decker hall are U2, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Janet Jackson, and The Rolling Stones.

About Tower Theatre
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
