“The sounds that will fill the air at the Dell this summer will delight visitors who want to kick back, relax and enjoy Philadelphia’s summer season,” said Mayor Nutter. “We thank WAWA Welcome America for supporting this year’s Dell concert series and for hosting the nation’s best 4th of July celebration right here in Philadelphia, where it all started.”


Before the start of the “Essence of Entertainment” concert series, the Dell Music Center and Wawa Welcome America will present a June 23rd “Evening of Elegance” performance by three-time Grammy award winning singer Nancy Wilson and jazz saxophonist Najee.


This summer, the Dell will also serve as a host venue for:


  • A Tribute to Gamble & Huff: Forty Years of International Records
  • Additional Wawa Welcome America events
  • A Disney Radio children’s show
  • A Yesha Ministries gospel concert featuring nationally renowned performers
  • A Domestic Violence Awareness Night, from which a portion of proceeds will go towards domestic violence support programs


The Dell Music Center underwent $6 million in major capital improvements in 2008 and reopened in time for the start of 2010 summer concert season. Renovations include improvements to the stage complex, the installation of brand new seating and a new roof, and reconstruction of the parking lot.
