Monday, September 16, 2013


Eagles Eagles Eagles

Eagles take flight: In spite of not being all that prolific lately, the Eagles certainly have a treasured back catalogue that continues to attract new generations of fans. In fact, the band's new documentary DVD/Blu-ray "The History Of The Eagles" (Capitol) doesn't just touch on all the most obvious hits, but also digs deep to provide an exhaustive overview of the group past and present. That very spirit finds core foursome Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit hitting the road once again, making sure no stone is unturned in this retrospective show chronicling country rock's definitive trailblazers. Friday, September 20 at United Center: www.livenation.com.

Hackett recalls Genesis days: Even though the Phil Collins-led era of Genesis was by far the most successful, the Peter Gabriel years continue to be the most celebrated. Apparently guitarist Steve Hackett agrees, going so far as to offer the "Genesis Revisited II" (Inside Out Music) album and tour, a sequel to 1996's "Watcher of the Skies: Genesis Revisited" that once again puts a fresh twist on tunes from his intriguing duration within the band from 1971-1977. Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 at Arcada Theatre: www.oshows.com.

Earth, Wind & Fire Earth, Wind & Fire Earth, Wind & Fire

Two rounds of Earth, Wind & Fire: The blurring of R&B, funk and pop lines never sounds more seamless than when Earth, Wind & Fire starts cranking up the jams and this year's trek builds upon that formula to highlight tunes from the brand new "Now, Then & Forever" (Sony Legacy). Besides a helping of the group's first new outpouring in eight years, a dance party is sure to ensue during classics like "September," "Let's Groove," "Shining Star" and "Fantasy." Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
