Murals adorn the walls with gold and pale blue accents. Live record albums are recorded in the Upper Darby venue. In 1972, a fire destroyed its historic interior and marked a major change of events. Rolling Stone Magazine named the Tower Theatre one of the top 10 live music and concert venues in the United States during 2018. Artists and musicians travel around the world to perform live on stage in the Tower Theatre. David Bowie, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen recorded live albums from Tower Theatre events. Huge wooden windows, reminiscent of a church or cathedral, highlight the magnificent view, and the theater's layout is perfectly symmetrical. Get your favorite Tower Theatre tickets at StubHub.
