Live Music Is Back, And Hundreds Of Shows Are Planned In Philly

PHILADELPHIA — Music brings all kinds of people together, and the coronavirus prevented that from happening for more than a year.

Luckily, live music is coming back to Philadelphia and big names are slated to play the city.

Philadelphia has lifted nearly all its coronavirus restrictions, meaning large events like concerts are once again able to be held.

The Wells Fargo Center, Citizens Bank Park, The Met, and more venues across the city are preparing to host hundreds of music lovers who have been bereft of live music experiences.

Big names set to play Philadelphia this year and next year include Blake Shelton, Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Eric Church, and Dead & Company.
