From staples like the Electric Factory, the TLA and the Trocadero to big ticket venues like the Wells Fargo Center and the brand new Fillmore Philly, most music fans in the Delaware Valley would agree Philadelphia is a great place to see concerts.
A new analysis of U.S. cities now supports that favorable rating, naming Philadelphia the top location in the country for live music. VividSeats ranked the top 20 cities in the U.S. and Canada based on factors including the overall number of concerts and the median ticket price for those shows.
Specifically, the analysis found that Philly is a great place for Adult Contemporary, Alternative, Blues & Jazz, Classical, and Country & Folk. The median ticket price to attend these shows was $125, significantly below New York City's median of $185.
