Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration: The Grateful Dead are hands down one of the most monumental groups of all time, from practically pioneering the jam-centered rock scene to selling out stadiums all the world over. Though it's late great leader is no longer with us, the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration seeks to celebrate all the integral elements of the group and his solo strides, which besides boasting a luminous orchestra, features the one and only Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule) on vocals and guitar. Tuesday, May 20 at The Chicago Theatre:

Hip-hop girl group reunion: After finding fame on MTV's "Making The Band" in 2005, hip-hop hotties Danity Kane signed with Diddy's Bad Boy Records and scored a stable of singles like "Damaged," "Show Stopper" featuring Yung Joc and "Bad Girl" with Missy Elliott. But just as quickly as the girls topped the Billboard charts, they seemed to vanish at the peak of popularity, only to reunite in 2013 for some select appearances, followed by this full-fledged tour and the promise a new album's right around the corner.

The Guess Who The Guess Who The Guess Who

A Canadian classic: Canadian classic rock royalty The Guess Who head back on the touring trails throughout America, and although its line-up may have changed, the band's timeless sound remains the same. Though the group has too many hits to even mention, it's a pretty safe bet "American Woman," "These Eyes," "No Time" and "Hand Me Down World" will show up on the set list, alongside a new tune or two. Saturday, May 24 at Arcada Theatre:
