Tower Theater Philadelphia
Technically located in Upper Darby, just a stone’s throw from the 69th Street Terminal commuter hub, Philly’s Tower Theater stands as one of the city’s best-sounding auditoriums — and a must-play room on any band’s journey. Everyone from the Rolling Stones and Oasis to Tori Amos and Florida Georgia Line have graced its stage, with Bob Weir and Ratdog’s regular engagements becoming a part of the fabric of Tower history. With an ornate ceiling dotted with glow-in-the-dark stars, a concert at the theater becomes a full-sensory experience. And some of its most celebrated acts live on forever: both David Bowie and Thin Lizzy recorded concert albums on the Tower’s stage. —JOSEPH HUDAK
