Kevin Bacon doesn't just love the arts in Philly, he also loves the renewal forgotten Philly urban spaces.
The Bacon Brothers, featuring Kevin and older brother Michael, will play a concert in support of the Phase I of the Viaduct Rail Park on February 4 at Union Transfer. Tickets cost $35, $125 for a VIP package.
Kevin and Michael grew up in Philly. Their dad was the urban planner Edmund Bacon, whose legacy revolves around his dedication to remaking Philadelphia. Michael began his musical career in Philadelphia, playing his first show at the Electric Factory.
The Viaduct Rail Park would repurpose the Reading Railroad viaduct -- running from Broad Street southeast across 13th and 12th Streets to Callowhill Street -- from an abandoned space to an elevated park. All proceeds would go to the Phase I of the project that is a collaboration between the Center City District and Friends of the Rail Park.
