Concert(s) Preview: PPL Center Arena

Not a complete departure from our normal sports coverage–just that I’m excited about the new arena.  I’m excited about hockey and I’m looking forward to the concerts.  So, a couple things to get you ready:


First, a quick look at the events that have been scheduled so far.  (The PPL Arena folks remind you to purchase tickets from the authorized site and not a re-seller, if you can help it.)


September 12:  The Eagles

September 15: Cher (Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo)

September 16: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Steve Winwood)

September 26: Rascal Flatts

October 1 and 4: Phantoms Hockey Preseason (single games on sale now $12-$15–included with full season tickets)

October 3: Harlem Globetrotters ($24-$96)

October 5: WWE Live

October 10-11: Professional Bull Riding ($15-$100)

October 15: Judas Priest ($32.50-$52.50)

December 20: Penn State vs. Drexel (Men’s College Basketball)


Here are some set lists for the first couple shows.  I used a couple on-line sites to research their current tours–keeping in mind that artists sometimes change things up, improvise, and the like.  Check at if you’d like to do further research on your own as the shows approach.
