Here’s Why It Just Got Even Better to See a Show at the Mann
Some exciting changes have been announced for one of our favorite Philadelphia concert venues. The Mann announced some new renovations and a new partnership with TD Bank. In fact, the recently renovated pavilion will be renamed the TD Pavilion at the Mann. Some of the upgrades, by the way, are really cool:
Renovations include adding 4,500 new seats, the addition of new LED video displays on the side of the stage, and the addition of some new lighting. Plus, officials say they also have improved sight lines from the center of the house.
Essentially, since we're music nerds: all of this means it will be an even better place to see a show.
The multi-year partnership with TD Bank "allows (the Mann) to continue building diverse summer seasons of incredible music and entertainment and to flourish in our year-round community engagement events," officials said in a press release.
The center's website describes the venue as "one of the country's largest non-profit open-air music centers." It opened in 1935 and hosted summer performances by the Philadelphia Orchestra between 1935-1976.
This year's Roots Picnic featuring 21 Savage, H.E.R. and many others will take place at the newly-named TD Pavilion at the Mann on June 1.
Other upcoming events at the venue include Robyn (July 17), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire In Concert (July 20), Nickelodeon's JoJo Siwa D.R.E.A.M. The Tour (July 27), Vampire Weekend (Sept. 4), and Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience (Sept. 12).
