‘Made In America’ concert rocks Philly

Tens of thousands turned out for the start of the “Budweiser Made in America” concert in Philadelphia and just as many should be on hand for day two.

Saturday’s show featured Kanye West, The National and a host of other acts on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Young & Sick kicked off the festival followed by acts including Big Daddy Kane, Cherub and Mayer Hawthorn.

The two-day extravaganza curated by rap mogul Jay Z has been held annually in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend since 2012. This year, he added a second event in Los Angeles.
