Macklemore & Ryan Lewis mania, Kanye's homecoming, the latest from Legend
Monday, November 4, 2013


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis mania: Rapper/producer combo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis may have released their collaborative collection "The Heist" over a year ago with no mainstream promotion whatsoever, but the attention keeps mounting thanks to the group's hook-heavy beats and socially-minded messages. Expect to hear all the major singles off the now platinum-selling project, like "Wings," "Same Love" and "Thrift Shop," alongside several underground, pre-fame favorites. Monday, November 4 at UIC Pavilion: www.jamusa.com.

Kanye's homecoming: There's no sense trying to assess Kanye West's on stage escapades or behind the scenes scenarios, especially now that they've reached full-blown tabloid territory. All anyone needs to know is the Chicago-bred rapper is coming home for a two night stand supporting his sixth studio album "Yeezus," which is yet another unclassifiable left turn for the unpredictable performer, following a one off tag team with Jay Z in 2011. Thursday, November 7 and Saturday, November 9 at United Center: www.ticketmaster.com.

John Legend John Legend John Legend John Legend

The latest from Legend: Speaking of a return to solo life following a unique season of collaboration, John Legend is still red hot after lighting up the R&B/hip-hop world with The Roots in 2010. Nonetheless, he's back in the neo soul scene with "Love In The Future," which technically marks the follow-up to 2008's "Evolver," though rest assured he's likely to combine it all with plenty from 2004's Grammy sweeping debut "Get Lifted." Sunday, November 10 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
