"Quadrophenia" leaps to life, Common's homecoming, plus a solo acoustic LaMontagne
Monday, November 26, 2012


The Who The Who The Who The Who

"Quadrophenia" leaps to life: Though "Tommy" was The Who's first rock opera, "Quadrophenia" continues to be its most regarded thanks to an ambitious storyline interwoven with smash singles like "The Real Me" and "Love, Reign O'er Me." The band promises a front to back presentation of that project, alongside a generous helping of hits from the British Invasion through today. Also be sure to show up early for Vintage Trouble, a soul and blues-doused rock n' roll band that's already toured with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Bon Jovi, Queen's Brian May and The Cranberries. Thursday, November 29 and Friday, November 30 at Allstate Arena: www.ticketmaster.com.

Common Common Common Common Common

Common's homecoming: Considering Common was a staple of the Chicago scene during the rise of Kanye West, Twista and other like-minded trendsetters, this show just over the state line could certainly be considered a highly anticipated homecoming. Besides browsing through tunes from the 2000s, last year's "The Dreamer/The Believer" and previews of a yet to be titled 2013 release are sure to be on display. Friday, November 30 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino: www.thevenuechicago.com.

Ray LaMontagne Ray LaMontagne Ray LaMontagne Ray LaMontagne Ray LaMontagne

A solo acoustic LaMontagne: The first show sold out instantly, so it's only fitting for Ray LaMontagne to stick around the Windy City for a second night. Besides the solo acoustic set highlighting the folk-flavored troubadour's acclaimed catalogue, night two is part of the 93XRT/Bud Light BIG Holiday Concert series, which simultaneously celebrates the adult alternative station's 40th anniversary. Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
