Why go to Camden to see Dave Matthews for the 14th straight year when you can do something completely different this summer?
On July 24th, the Eagles are teaming up with NFL Films and the Mann Center for the Performing Arts for the world premiere of the “Philly Special” concert event.
A description from the event page:
Hosted by the “Voice of the Eagles,” Merrill Reese, relive NFL Films’ stunning video highlights of the Philadelphia Eagles Championship Season on three giant screens alongside the great Philadelphia Orchestra, performing live the inspiring, uplifting and wonderfully symphonic music of NFL Films. Show your team spirit by wearing your Eagles’ gear and come celebrate with the Eagles Cheerleaders and Swoop! Be sure to pack a picnic and bring the whole family as we continue to celebrate this unforgettable football season!
Merrill Reese narrating Eagles highlights with the Philadelphia Orchestra? Dude, I’m in. I’ll bring the tomato pie and crappy beer, you call up Vikings fans and tell them they’re invited.
Tickets are $25 to $65, but watching Tom Brady fumble the ball again is priceless. Sales start this Friday at 10 a.m. and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Mann Center’s free arts education initiatives and Eagles Autism Challenge.
