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.

Je'caryous Johnson's Things Your Man Won't Do

March 12, 2016

Leading African-American playwright and inspirational speaker Je'caryous Johnson is back with a brand-new touring play that is set to catch the stage on fire! Not so much a love triangle as a love square, this story tells the funny efforts that an emotionally unintelligent man must make in order to win back the love of his life. But when he enlists the help of his friend, he finds that there is another person in the race for this woman's affections.

New Order

March 12, 2016

Hot on the heels of their 2015 album Music Complete - the first new material in 10 years, these English New Wave vets are heading out on tour this March! Emerging out of the ashes of Joy Division, New Order were instrumental in the progression of alternative rock during the 80s. Their marrying of post-punk and electronic dance music, maybe best showcased in their monster hit Blue Monday, was hugely influential and set the ground for the baggy scene of 90s in the UK, which would itself birth Britpop.

Gregg Allman

April 1, 2016

Rock and blues singer, keyboardist, guitarist and songwriter, and a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman really has done it all. He was inducted with the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Smashing Pumpkins & Liz Phair

April 8, 2016

Billy Corgan's inimitable Pumpkins head out on another In Plainsong tour, during which they'll be playing cuts from the catalogue in a stripped down acoustic style, infused with some light electronics. As well as original Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, this tour also boasts a pretty spectacular support act in Liz Phair.

Dream Theater

April 22, 2016

Never a band to skimp on ambition, Dream Theater's latest record is a sprawling concept album, running to 34 tracks. Spread over two 'Acts', The Astonishing tells the story of a band of rebels trying to overthrow an oppressive force. Lead guitarist Joh Petruci has revealed the band may well think about turning it into a Broadway show in the future, but for now they'll be playing it in its entirety live on this tour.
