National Tours Take the Stage in NEPA
NEPA’s live music venues are hosting some of your favorite artists this fall.
You don’t have to travel to Philly or New York to catch an awesome concert. You can watch famous acts and national tours perform right here. Larger venues like the Mohegan Sun Arena provide the classic concert experience, complete with booming stereos, flashing lights and cheering fans. Smaller stages cut down on the crowds and have a cool, laidback feel, like you’re at your own personal concert.
Whether you like to headbang to heavy metal anthems or kick back with country songs, this fall’s concert line-up has it all. NEPA’s concert scene covers everything from rap and reggae to soul and Southern rock. We even have a little Trans-Siberian Orchestra sprinkled in (hey, we won’t judge if you’re already eager for Christmas music).
Check out whose tour bus is pulling into town this fall. We’ve rounded up some of the biggest concerts of the season.
