Stones turn 50: Fans may have waited with baited breath as to whether or not The Rolling Stones would stage a full-fledged tour in honor of its 50th anniversary, but thankfully the world's greatest rock n' roll band rose to the occasion. Reviews of the group's London and New York residencies from last year were resoundingly positive and chances are a solid mix of hits, rarities, covers and even a few new tunes will pop up this round as well. Tuesday, May 28/ Friday, May 31/ Monday, June 3 at United Center:

Macy Gray Macy Gray Macy Gray Macy Gray

Macy performs breakthrough project: Neo-soul siren Macy Gray is certainly an acquired taste, but for those who admire her boundary-breaking style, there's no better way to see her than in an intimate venue. During this two night stand, the eclectic singer/songwriter turns in a complete rendering of 1999's blockbuster debut disc "On How Life Is," which features her most massive hit "I Try." Tuesday, May 28 and Wednesday, May 29 at City Winery:

Twin Shadow Twin Shadow Twin Shadow Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow scores: If Peter Gabriel was a brand new artist and got a gig fronting Bloc Party, he'd probably come across like Twin Shadow (born George Lewis Jr.) throughout the superb sophomore endeavor "Confess." Combining new wave explosions with haunting balladry, the singer/songwriter could just as readily appeal to children of the '80s as today's indie rock world. Saturday, June 1 at Metro:
