We’re taking a look back at our favorite memories of the past year. Check out all of our lists here!
2019 was an incredible year of WMMR concerts and events in and around the Philadelphia area! It was also a great year for road trippin’ to go see some of your favorite bands! As of this post, I have Rocked, Rolled, Danced, Laughed and Headbanged my way through 88 concerts & events in 2019 – not including sporting events – However, I WAS at the “Double Doink” Eagles/Bears game at Soldier Field earlier this year.. so that gets an honorable mention!
It was hard to put this list together because there were soooo many great shows this year!
So here it is.. Enjoy & THANKS to You, my thousands and thousands of concert buddies, for a GREAT 2019 concert season! -Brent Porche

#1) Shinedown @ The Ryman Auditorium (Nashville, Tn)
I was fortunate enough to see TWO nights of “My Boys” Shinedown at the Legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The Ryman opened in 1892 as the Union Gospel Tabernacle – Charlie Chaplin, Harry Houdini & John Philip Sousa among MANY other early greats performed there. The Ryman was then home to the Grand Ole Opry beginning in 1943 – Legends like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong…..and now SHINEDOWN have all performed on the storied Ryman stage.
BRING ON THE 2020 CONCERT SEASON!!!
