Concerts are what most people look forward to during the year. Living near Philly is a big advantage as many artists perform at a venue near us. There are many amazing artists coming to Philly this year; here is some information about their shows.
March 9th at Wells Fargo Center: Maroon 5
Supported by Magic! And Rozzi Crane
With all their years of being a band and hearing their singles on the radio you can only imagine the stage presence Maroon 5 has built over the years.
March 12th at Wells Fargo Center: Ariana Grande
Supported by Rixton
Ariana Grande has smashed charts this year with all of her hits. As I’m sure many of you know, she is an amazing live performer and knows how to work a stage.
May 10th at The Wells Fargo Center: Iggy Azalea
Supported by Nick Jonas
Starting off a show with Nick Jonas, having tour experience himself from his time in the Jonas Brothers, and ending it with Iggy Azalea is truly a show you cannot miss. The two make an unlikely pair that will definitely make you eager to see what can come from it.
May 22nd at The Mann: All Time Low
Supported by Tonight Alive, Issues, and State Champs
All Time Low, more of pop-punk/alternative band, may not be as well known as the other mentioned artists, but they give an amazing show. Their music is different from what may usually hear, but with their sixth album Future Hearts soon hitting the shelves, it’s a show you don’t want to miss.
May 26th at The Mann: Ed Sheeran
Supporting act TBA
As this is Ed Sheeran’s second album release, Ed has built up a well known name in a short amount of time. Taking three years to write his album, Multiply, you can count on an amazing show.
June 10th at Susquehanna Bank Center: Boys of Zummer Tour (Fall Out Boy and Wiz Kalifah)
Supported by Hoodie Allen
Fall Out Boy has been together for many years and after a long hiatus they’re back with a second album. Fall Out Boy gives a show you don’t want to miss, speaking from experience, and the ringing in your ears will be worth it in the end.
June 13th at Lincoln Financial Field: Taylor Swift
Supported by Shawn Mendes/Vance Joy
The 1989 World Tour is one to look forward to. Swift clearly has lots of tour experience and makes a good show.
August 29th at Hershey Stadium: 5 Seconds of Summer
Supporting act tba
After opening for One Direction in two of their tours and playing at The Tower Theater last year, 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) is coming back for their first headlining arena tour, Rock Out With Your Socks Out. If you’re looking for a high energy pop-punk band to go and watch 5SOS is one.
