Live Nation to Open the Fillmore Philadelphia in the Fall
Philadelphia is getting a new concert venue in the fall.
Live Nation has announced that it will be turning the legendary Ajax Metal Factory, located in the Fishtown neighborhood of the city, into a "beautiful pounding music machine." The space will be able to accommodate 2,500 people and will feature "state-of-the-art production" and vintage posters as decor.
The bars will be stocked with small batch liquors, local and widely known craft beers and a menu that will range from local faves like brats and cheesesteaks to more upscale dishes like charcuteries and cheese plates.
Not only will there be a big space for major acts, but the Fillmore Philadelphia will also feature the Foundry, a smaller, more intimate club on the top floor of the building. This space can hold 450 fans who will be able to dance it up and see their favorite local acts, DJs and smaller touring bands.
“The Fillmore Philadelphia will feature the best sound system of any club its size, unparalleled sightlines, and remarkable food and beverage, making it more than a place for a concert. It will be a true experience," the President of Live Nation’s House of Blues Entertainment Division Ron Bension recently said.
