“Home to great live music, specials events and more!”

It all started early one summer in 1972 when the first concert and sold out show took place at the Tower Theater. The day after the show, a reviewer from the Philadelphia Daily News wrote, "Philly Finally has its Fillmore," referring to the famous Fillmore East in New York. Over the next few years, The Tower quickly grew a reputation as having its finger on the "pulse" of what was happening in music. Then unknowns, David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars and Peter Gabriel with Genesis stood on the Tower's stage during its fledgling years and Bruce Springsteen introduced the E Street Band there in 1974. Since then, the likes of Paul Simon, Neil Young and David Bowie have recorded live shows in this historic building and the list of talent that has come through is truly amazing. U2, Grateful Dead, Radiohead, Bob Marley, Tori Amos, Eddie Murphy, Mary J. Blige, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Kanye West, John Legend, The Decemberists, Robert Plant, The Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Janet Jackson, Eddie Vedder, The Smiths, The Rolling Stones, Phish, Steely Dan, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and literally thousands more.

Nice medium sized music venue. Best Radiohead performance ever! If you get a chance to see an artist here who usually only books arenas, do it - makes for a fantastic more personal feeling show.
