The Bacon Brothers to play benefit concert for Philly's Viaduct Rail Park

The Rail Park will turn neglected railway into neighborhood hangout

On Thursday, Feb. 4, The Bacon Brothers, a rock band comprised of Kevin and Michael Bacon, will play at Philly's Union Transfer. Michael Bacon actually began his music career playing local shows at the Electric Factory in the 1960s, later forming a band with younger brother and actor Kevin Bacon.

The concert will benefit the construction of the Viaduct Rail Park, managed by the partnership between Friends of the Rail Park and Center City District. The Rail Park will turn a neglected railway spanning from Broad Street at Noble Street to Callowhill Street into a neighborhood park.  

The project has a $9.6 million construction goal, and according to Friends of the Rail Park's website, more than $5.1 million has been raised to date. 

General admission tickets are $35 per person with doors and bar opening at 7:15 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show. Attendees can also upgrade their tickets to include a pre-concert cocktail party at 6 p.m. The $125 VIP tickets include open bar, hors d'oeuvres, parking and balcony seating.
