4 Shows to See This Week in Chicago


The return of an R&B icon, a country music superstar, a controversial comedian, and a musical celebration of the Day of the Dead will keep you busy this upcoming week in Chicago.

Janet Jackson

I didn’t know how much I’ve missed Janet Jackson until she released this new song and album for the world reminding us all that not many R&B artists can match her talent. Catch her at The Chicago Theatre for a hit-filled concert as part of her Unbreakable World Tour.
The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.
Nov. 3, and 6
Tickets from $ 50


Bill Burr

Bill Burr is part of a string of comedians who don’t mind being, and many times hate, politically incorrect when it comes to any subject. That usually only works out for a comedian if their funny and it helps Burr because he is hilarious. If you’re easily offended I might stay away from this one.
The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.
Oct. 29 – 31
Tickets from $45


Luke Bryan

Luke Bryan is a country music superstar with over seven million albums sold across the globe. Bryan represents a new brand of country artist who don’t mind mixing other genres with his country foundation.

Chicago Sinfionetta Dia De Los Muertos


The Dia de Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday meant to help the journey of friends and loved ones we have lost. Colombian conductor Andres Franco will be taking the audience on that journey with pieces by Barber, Faure, Frank, Wagner and others that express the despair, loss, and light experienced through the process of mourning. This will also be the debut of Chicago-based composer Elbio Barilari’s Ofrendas (Offerings).
