An alternative Christmas: The latest in the long line of radio station sponsored holiday concerts comes from Q87.7, the Chicago area's relatively new alternative rock outlet that's essentially taken the place of Q101. Dubbed "The Night We Stole Christmas," this year's all-star line-up includes Thirty Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Foals, alt-J and GROUPLOVE. And if those aren't enough reasons to celebrate, tickets start at just $10! Wednesday, December 11 at Allstate Arena: www.q877.com.

Drake delivers rescheduled date: He may have pushed back some tour dates due to production delays, but rapper Drake is destined to deliver on this highly anticipated headlining outing supporting his third studio album "Northing Was The Same." In addition to the modern day hip-hop hero, the "Would You Like A Tour?" bill also features Grammy Award winning R&B singer Miguel and fellow rapper Future. Thursday, December 12 at United Center: www.livenation.com.

Beyonce's second sweep: After selling out the United Center this spring, Beyonce brings her "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" back to town, splitting the set list between all four of her solo albums, plus a short but sweet shout out to Destiny's Child. Though her latest project (simply titled "4") has already been out for a couple of years, the empowering superstar never really needs a reason to hit the road other than the fact that she feels like it.
