Press Release

It's chilly in Philly, but hot at the Mann!

Despite winter’s chill, the Mann is already a hot ticket for next summer’s season.

Pollstar Names The Mann to its “Best” List

The Mann’s unique blend of rock and classical music has caught fire with national recognition. Its rebirth has made it one of the most important music centers in the country, and here’s proof: For the second, consecutive year, Pollstar Magazine has named the Mann as one of its Best Major Outdoor Concert Venues.

“Pollstar once again has confirmed what more and more Philadelphians know – the Mann is one of North America’s great live entertainment venues. From serving as a summer home for The Philadelphia Orchestra to hosting the latest indie rock bands, the Mann offers an amazing convergence of great music. If you haven’t discovered the Mann, we are working hard to make 2012 your year!” said Catherine M. Cahill, the Mann’s president and CEO.
