Mary J. Blige To Open Fillmore's Silver Spring Festival

August 21, 2011

(RTTNews) - Mary J. Blige will help kick off the Fillmore Silver Spring Festival on September 15 at 7:00 PM. The event takes place in Silver Spring, Maryland at the city's new Fillmore venue.

The fest's schedule includes a variety of music and comedy acts including Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star, Blondie, Cheap Trick, the Psychedelic Furs, county star Clayton Anderson and Lewis Black.

The Silver Spring Fillmore broke ground in 2010 and is part of the concert promoter Live Nation's growing roster of Fillmore-themed venues. The original Fillmore, located in San Francisco, was a hot-spot for rock and psych-rock bands in the late-1960s. The Maryland edition has a capacity of 2,000.
Tickets go on sale at 10:00 AM, July 29 and start at $89.50 for Blige's concert.
