Two intimate Allman nights, Red Rocker's 40th anniversary, plus DM's "Delta Machine"
Monday, August 19, 2013


Allman Brothers Allman Brothers Allman Brothers

Two intimate Allman nights: Now that so many members of The Allman Brothers Band are exploring full-fledged solo careers, a full troupe tour is a real rarity. Nonetheless, the legendary southern rockers carve out enough time for two jam packed shows at one of Chicago's most glorious venues, promising plenty of jams like "Whipping Post" and "Jessica" from its illustrious past. Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.

Sammy Hagar Sammy Hagar Sammy Hagar Sammy Hagar

Red Rocker's 40th anniversary: Take time in Montrose, Van Halen, Chickenfoot and an equally energetic solo career, add it all together, and the results find Sammy Hagar celebrating four decades in the music biz. The Red Rocker promises an exhaustive retrospective show with special guest Michael Anthony of Van Halen and Chickenfoot fame at this particular tour stop. Friday, August 23 at Charter One Pavilion: www.livenation.com.

Depeche Mode Depeche Mode Depeche Mode Depeche Mode

DM's "Delta Machine": If Depeche Mode's 2009 collection "Sounds Of The Universe" was a modern day edition of "Violator," this year's "Delta Machine" could quite possibly be considered a bookend to "Songs Of Faith And Devotion." In other words, the dance floor is left in the distance in favor of electronically-saturated introspection, though as is the case on all DM tours, every aspect of its pioneering career is bound to be addressed with a pretty safe bet on classics like "Personal Jesus" and "Never Let Me Down Again" intermixed with new tunes. Saturday, August 24 at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre: www.livenation.com.
