Aviciit Aviciit Aviciit Aviciit

EDM explosion with Avicii: At just 24-years-old, Avicii is already leading the next generation of EDM DJs and producers, also racking up some serious singles in the process. "Le7els" sold over four million copies and took in over 83 million YouTube views, while "Wake Me Up" moved more than 8.5 copies and hit #1 slot in 81 countries. It's no wonder why his North American #TRUETOUR is hitting all the major arenas, backed by a visual arsenal that's amongst the scene's most mesmerizing. Thursday, May 15 at Allstate Arena:

Reba Reba Reba Reba

Roll the dice with Reba: Taking a break from her usual run of arenas, The Venue at Horseshoe Casino snags a major score in the form of country music giant/TV superstar Reba McEntire. Her concert is sure to be a spectacle as it peruses through more than 56 million albums sold and 64 Top 10 hits that have thus far earned her a pair of Grammy Awards, 15 American Music Awards and more country accolades than could even be counted. Friday, May 16 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino:

Elbow Elbow Elbow

An ethereal evening with Elbow: Each effort into its ethereal, Peter Gabriel-approved career, Elbow keeps on topping itself and "The Take Off and Landing of Everything" is no exception. The atmospheric album was recorded between that former Genesis front man's Real World Studios and the band's own Blueprint Studios, featuring vivid lyrical imagery, emotive soundscapes and some of Manchester's most progressive alternative artistry of today. Monday, May 19 at House of Blues:
