'Made In America' Music Festival Wraps Up

Posted: Updated:

This weekend's two-day "Made in America Festival" came to a close Sunday night, and it did not disappoint.

The final day of the concert on the Ben Franklin Parkway featured the reunion of Run DMC and 90s rock legends Pearl Jam.

Thousands of music fans were out by the Philadelphia Museum of Art as the event drew to a close, and FOX 29's Dave Kinchen filed this report while the party was still going on.

Run DMC had the old-school jams, like "Walk This Way" on the festival's final day.

Even superstar Drake was on hand as 50,000 people were expected to attend. Many said the show was out of sight.

On the outside, there was quite a commotion as Jay-Z made his way to the event, and Beyonce was a surprise.

The billion-dollar couple didn't really talk about being in town when asked by reporter. But the fans said it's all good and the show lived up to all it should.

A lot of partiers and concert fans meant a lot of mess left behind. Our cameras got a look at the clean-up effort on the Parkway last night. Crews washed the streets around 2:15 Sunday a.m., and they did a pretty good job.

They may get some help Sunday from the rain.

Of course, "Made in America" wasn't the only concert in town Sunday night. Bruce Springsteen brought down the house at Citizens Bank Park.

Springsteen performed the first of his two sold-out shows in South Philadelphia. The Boss may be getting up there in age, but fans we spoke to say he's still got it.

With his performance last night, Springsteen completed a unique cycle. He has now played at every major venue in Philadelphia, including several places that aren't even around anymore, such as Veterans Stadium, JFK Stadium and the Spectrum.
