Queen rocks Broadway, Rod teams with Winwood, plus Sande's soulful serenade
Monday, October 21. 2013


Queen Queen Queen

Queen rocks Broadway: Even though Freddie Mercury is no longer with us, Queen's music certainly lives on, especially considering members Brian May and Roger Taylor keep authorizing projects for its classic rock cannon to reach the younger masses. Throughout the past eleven years, the musical "We Will Rock You" has drawn massive crowds all across the globe, though audiences in Chicago finally get to see the show that boasts massive stadium shakers like "Somebody To Love," "We Are The Champions," "Bohemian Rhapsody," and of course, the tour's namesake. Tuesday, October 22- Sunday, October 27 at Cadillac Palace Theatre: www.broadwayinchicago.com.

Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Rod Stewart

Rod teams with Winwood: For the first time since 2001, Rod Stewart is touring behind an album of all original material, and unlike crooner material of the relatively recent past, "Time" (Capitol) returns to his rollicking singer/songwriter roots. While that revived direction should be enough motivation to attend, opener Steve Winwood adds another ace to the deck with a show split between solo work, plus time in the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic and Blind Faith.

Emeli Sande Emeli Sande Emeli Sande Emeli Sande

Sande's soulful serenade: When Scottish singer/songwriter Emeli Sande made her way to these shores earlier this year, she drew instant comparisons to Adele thanks to her contemporary soul stylings. But for those who caught her at a sold out Lincoln Hall or even Lollapalooza, the vocal powerhouse certainly stands on her own accord, further emphasized by the fact that she's written songs for the diverse likes of Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Susan Boyle and Tinie Tempah.
