Don’t Miss these Four Concerts this Weekend

Leon Bridges

From iconic favorites to roots revival newcomers, don’t miss these rock-star concerts this weekend.

The Who

What Roger Daltrey has called “the beginning of a long goodbye,” the Who Hits 50! tour makes their stop in Chicago to give fans a roller-coaster ride through the band’s 52-year history. Setlists for the tour so far have included songs like “Baba O’Reily,” “Love, Reign O’er Me,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” and “Who Are You,” along with deep cuts from their catalogue that stretches back to 1964.

Lake Street Dive

Although together since 2004, Lake Street Dive is still under the radar for many people, but it’s about time they get more plays on your phones. Heavily influenced by pop, jazz, The Beatles, Motown, and roots music, Lake Street Dive brings a sound all too familiar yet rarely heard on the radio. The true selling point is the voice of lead singer Rachael Price who can incite all kinds of emotions with her extensive vocal range, her blues-y tone, and her power. Tickets are sold out but still available through Stubhub.

Leon Bridges

Sam Cooke has come back and his name is now Leon Bridges. It is uncanny how similar Bridges sounds like Cooke an emulates his style with its gospel foundation and soul styling. However, Bridges has his own things to say. Some may say he’s just a Cooke copy, but remember all artists copy and if someone wants to make our radio stations and our streams sound more like Cooke than more power to them.

Experience Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix has been gone for over 40 years, but his music still lives on with us and one of the best ways to hear is at Experience Hendrix. This tribute features guitar heavyweights like Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, Chris Layton, and others joining together to play the guitar god’s hits. They are backed up in the rhythm section by Billy Cox who played with Hendrix in both the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys.
