Concert Status Updates

The Met Philadelphia

The Met Philadelphia

Thank you for donating to WHYY during a recent TV or FM Membership Campaign and requesting concert tickets as your thank-you gift. As you know, almost all scheduled concerts have been postponed through 2020. The few remaining events scheduled for 2020 may still be postponed and rescheduled. Find your show below to see the latest updates, rescheduled dates, and status of your tickets.

We want to assure you that your ticketed event will be held in the safest possible way for all involved. We’re grateful for your donation and are committed to giving you the concert experience you expected. We have your back.

If for any reason you misplace (or don’t receive) your tickets, reach out to WHYY Member Services. They can arrange for your tickets to be reprinted and waiting for you at the box office on the night of the performance. Please know, the box office will have a list of our attendees and are able to reprint tickets on demand on show night. Just bring your photo ID for verification purposes.

WHYY Member and Audience Services Department can be reached at (215) 351-0511 (Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM), or at memberservices@whyy.org.
