It's the oldest theater in America, with an interesting history including that President Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette attended it's first theatrical production in 1812, the Rivals.

World Cafe Live
#5 of 62 Concerts & Shows in Philadelphia
This venue is great for a concert and makes you feel like part of an intimate crowd rather than a sold-out stadium (you can even meet the artists as they board their bus if you stand in the right places).
So friendly and informative about concerts, local musicians and upcoming events.
Mann Center for the Performing Arts
#6 of 62 Concerts & Shows in Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Orchestra with Maestro Watanabe and three soloists in a concert of Bernstein and Gershwin and a premiere of Darin Atwater's South Side Symphonic Dances.
I've been introducing concerts to my kids here now and they have grown to love it as well (and it beats the crowds at the Wells Fargo Center hands down).
The Fillmore Philly
#7 of 62 Concerts & Shows in Philadelphia
The Fillmore is right across from Sugar House casino, so if you are having a awesome time at the concert and decide you still want to stay out you can just walk over to the casino and enjoy your night!!
I always have fun at The Fillmore and I’ve been to all type concerts and events here.

The theater is BYOB and very close to a bottle shop down the street, so you can grab a quick drink for the show if you want.
They have shows 7 nights a week - stand up, sketch improv, whatever and its all really funny.
