PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Have you been looking forward to the weekend, but can't think of a new plan to save your life? Do you find yourself constantly going through the same rotation of weekend plans and are dying for something a change of scenery? 

Our CBS Philadelphia team knows this feeling too. But not to worry, this weekend the City of Brotherly Love has a jam-packed entertainment guide for you. Here's a list of five shows happening this weekend that will take away your seasonal social suppression. 

Lauryn Hill

The New Jersey native is set to perform Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Her Miseducation of Lauryn Hill: 25th Anniversary Tour was originally scheduled for late October, but was postponed so the singer could get vocal rest. 

Hill is expected to perform the entire album at the show and reunite with The Fugees. 

Tickets are still available on secondary-seller websites. We found some for just $58 on

Pete Davidson 

Former Saturday Night Live star, Pete Davidson is in town for two shows. Davidson is performing two shows Saturday night at Rivers Casino in Fishtown. The first show begins at 7 p.m. and the second is at 10 p.m. 

Tickets for this King of Staten Island are a little hard to come by. But, we prevailed and found one on Stubhub for $270. 


Calling all theater fans! This is your last chance to see Wicked during its time here in Philadelphia. This year marks 20 years since the show first debuted on Broadway.
