Neil Young Neil Young Neil Young Neil Young

An intimate Neil Young: Last time Neil Young came through town, he was playing the UnitedCenter with his full-throttled backing band Crazy Horse. On his latest tour, the legendary singer/songwriter takes a much more intimate approach across a two night Chicago Theatre stand, but is still destined to pack plenty of power, even if the focus leans more towards his provocative words rather than raucous rock n' roll. Monday, April 21 and Tuesday, April 22 at The Chicago Theatre:

Goo Goo Dolls unplugged: Before rocking out with full production for a summer tour alongside Daughtry, the Goo Goo Dolls are unplugging for a special acoustic outing dubbed "The Otis Midnight Sessions." In addition to hearing hits like "Iris," "Slide," "Stay With You" and "Here Is Gone" in the stripped down setting, the duo is ready to tell plenty of stories chronicling a near 30 year history. Tuesday, April 22 at Park West:

Now back with his first individual studio album in 18 years, the flamboyant favorite stages a hugely anticipated show split between the new "This Is What I Do" and equally colorful oldies. Saturday, April 26 at House of Blues:
