Up for sale are a set of ticket stubs from the 1st annual 1945 Philadelphia Music Festival that was held on June 1st at 8:15 P. This event took place at the Municipal Stadium located in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. The festival was sponsored by The Philadelphia Inquirer Charities Inc.
And all proceeds went to Southeastern Chapter American Red Cross. These tickets have a stamp mark saying Complimentary Armed Forces which means these stubs originally belonged to soldiers that served in WWII. These may be a few of the only surviving tickets that remain. This historic event seems to be a forgotten piece of the past along with the following years because you cant find much or really any information on the subject.
Luckily I was able to find pictures of a old souvenir program booklet from this concert which includes information on what it was about and who performed that night. I will include these photos with mine so you can view the details of this event.
This horseshoe-shaped brick stadium first opened in South Philly on April 15, 1926 as part of the Sesquicentennial International Exposition. When the celebration ended, it became the Philadelphia Municipal Stadium, and finally, in 1964, it was renamed the John F.
It was first home to the Philadelphia Quakers of the first American Football League, and eventually the Eagles. It also served as the neutral venue for 41 Army-Navy games. It played double-duty as a popular concert venue, hosting the Beatles, Judy Garland, the Rolling Stones, and the Live Aid Concert in 1985. It was ultimately demolished due to safety issues in 1992. The Wells Fargo Center has since taken its spot.Please let me know if you have any questions.
