The initial schedule for the Met Philadelphia was announced on Monday afternoon, 9/10, at a press conference held at the Divine Lorraine Hotel. Bob Dylan will headline on December 3rd for the first performance of the renovated concert hall. The $56 million renovation is nearing completion.

The initial schedule includes a variety of entertainment including the folk legend, alternative rock, r&b, hip hop, indie rock, comedy, jazz, bluegrass, and dance. Philadelphia artists include PnB Rock, Ween, Kurt Vile, and Amos Lee billed as part of the #hoMETownSHOW series.
