The return of Rush, Bad Company's originals reunite, plus Go-Go's team with B-52's
Monday, June 24, 2013


Rush Rush Rush Rush


The return of Rush: Newly energized after its extremely belated induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, progressive rockers Rush stage the second leg of its "Clockwork Angels" tour. If the first run was any indication, the Canadian trio will tackle much of the conceptual collection, alongside a smattering of hits, and perhaps more appealing to committed fans, several deep cuts that haven't been dusted off for ages. Friday, June 28 at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre: www.livenation.com.

Bad Company Bad Company Bad Company Bad Company


Bad Company's originals reunite: After a successful solo career and even a stint fronting the reconstituted Queen, Paul Rodgers is back to what he does best and that's leading Bad Company. For the first time in eons, the surviving original members are swinging through the States to plow through a hit ripe history in honor of its 40th anniversary, sure to include blues-inspired classic rockers like "Can't Get Enough," "Feel Like Makin' Love" and "Shooting Star." Friday, June 28 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino: www.thevenuechicago.com and Saturday, June 29 at New Lenox Commons: www.newlenox.net.

The Go-Go's The B-52's The Go-Go's


The Go-Go's team with The B-52's: Neither ultra-fun '80s act has a new album at the moment, but there are plenty of hits to go around with the off again/on again Go-Go's and the always entertaining B-52's. Gear up for a "Vacation" from the former and a trip to the "Love Shack" from the latter, with loads of pop/punk and new wave nuggets mixed in between. Sunday, June 30 at Ravinia: www.ravinia.org.
