Don't miss Pink, Avett Brothers' acoustic action, plus the Oaks turn 40
Monday, November 18, 2013


PINK PINK PINK PINK

Don't miss Pink: She's already been to the United Center for two sold out shows, but Pink's back for one more encore appearance in the suburbs on her consistently sold out "The Truth About Love" tour. Aside from arguably being the biggest and best concert spectacle of the entire year, the singer/songwriter is one of the most vibrant and charismatic performers of this entire generation, plus she's makes for a pretty incredible acrobatic on the side. Wednesday, November 20 at Allstate Arena: www.livenation.com.

Avett Brothers Avett Brothers Avett Brothers Avett Brothers

Avett Brothers' acoustic action: Running right alongside Mumford & Sons at the top of the indie folk/acoustic movement is North Carolina's The Avett Brothers, who are riding high off the recent release of their eighth studio album "Magpie and the Dandelion." The project was once again produced by frequent collaborator Rick Rubin and continues to earn props from the college crowd through the NPR audience, suggesting its first ever arena tour will be an all ages undertaking. Friday, November 22 at UIC Pavilion: www.livenation.com.

The Oak Ridge Boys The Oak Ridge Boys The Oak Ridge Boys

The Oaks turn 40: For the past four decades, The Oak Ridge Boys have consistently cleaned up on the country charts and even scored some serious traction in the pop and gospel worlds. No matter what the musical direction, the core four's timeless harmonies are unmistakable and they're sure to hit all the highlights, like "Elvira," "Bobbie Sue" and "American Made," on this remarkable anniversary outing. Sunday, November 24 at Star Plaza Theatre: www.starplazatheatre.com.
