The Tower Theater is located in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, and is known for its excellent acoustics. As a result, it has been used to record many live music albums by a range of artists. For its first few years, Tower Theater primarily hosted both vaudeville acts and movies. However, in 1972 there was a fire at Tower Theater, forcing a complete refurbishment and a major turning point for the venue, as the theater began to host concerts and other music events.
