Kid Rock on a budget, Alabama turns 40, Cheap Trick tackles The Beatles
Monday, August 26, 2013


Kid Rock Kid Rock Kid Rock Kid Rock

Kid Rock on a budget: He's always appealed to the working class, but Kid Rock really shows his ethics are authentic by pricing the majority of this tour's tickets for a mere $20. Besides seeing one of the MotorCity's finest southern rockers, the evening includes performances by the legendary ZZ Top and Rock's longtime sidekick Uncle Kracker. Friday, August 30 at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre: www.livenation.com.

Alabama Alabama Alabama Alabama

Alabama turns 40: Country greats Alabama may have technically said farewell once before, but a 40th anniversary has given the group a worthwhile reason to reunite. Dubbed the "Back To Bowery Tour," the 73 million album-selling trio is sure to dive into plenty of its 43 chart-toppers spanning 1973-2013, which are certainly worthy of being rediscovered by a whole new generation of country fans and beyond. Friday, August 30 at Ravinia: www.ravinia.org.

Cheap Trick <Cheap Trick Cheap Trick Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick tackles The Beatles: Any time Cheap Trick makes the homecoming rounds it's a special occasion, but considering this visit features two landmark albums back to back makes it a must see show. As far as the Rockford rockers' catalogue goes, they promise a front to back rendering of "At Budokan," alongside a complete covering of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," both backed by a live orchestra. Saturday, August 31 at Ravinia: www.ravinia.org.
