The XTU’s Anniversary Show History Since 1989

XTU Nation

Country music has a unique ability to make people feel good in a way that’s hard to replicate by other music genres. XTU Nation has created a fantastic community across the Delaware Valley. From our station events, such as the Toy Truck Parade, the summer festivals, ticket runs and everything in between, XTU Nation shows up every time. You are some of the world’s most passionate and devoted fans. You love the country music, the country artists, and the community. And if you’ve ever been to an XTU event or concert, you know what I mean. XTU Nation makes country concerts some of the most fun events you can attend, and the memories will last forever. We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Why We Love Country Music

Country music has the best fans in any genre, and that is thanks to the amazing artists we support. Country artists are some of the most genuine people in the world. They’re not afraid to be themselves and to show their true colors, just like us! Country artists sing about real life, with all its ups and downs. They’re not afraid to be vulnerable and to share their personal stories with their fans. This makes them incredibly relatable and allows us to know them on a personal level. We know how kind, generous, and supportive they are, which makes for an amazing concert every time.

History Of XTU’s Anniversary Shows

We’re so excited to throw our XTU Anniversary Show every year since 1984. It’s incredible to see all the country artists that have come to Philadelphia and performed just for XTU Nation. We’ve had some incredible moments from our Anniversary Shows over the years. Take a look at the acts we have come through over the years!
