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.

  1. Will Merrill be doing any live commercial reads during the performance ?
    Remember the ol’ Slack’s Hoagie Shack “Whack of the Game” ?

    1. They are too worried about concussions. I miss those “Jacked Up” segments on the Monday Night pregame on E S P N. TJ saying Tony Romo got “Jacked Up”. How many highlights of the Birds would have on those if they did them during the Buddy days or when B Dawk was in his prime.

  2. I don’t know what shifts he is going to do. Jody M does the wrap up show after baseball and then till 2am. Joe Giglio does 6pm 10pm. I guess he can do some 10pm-2am shifts when Jody isn’t around. He is still working for CSN. I wonder if he would work with Glen again. Remember that Glen walked out during contract negotiations and left Rob holding the bag. Then Rob had a problem with Josh and left to go the Fanatic. When Ray is off I wouldn’t mind hearing Glen and Rob again. Rob is much better than Marshall. Will have to see how the whole thing plays out.
