Chicago Concerts Overview

Lollapalooza 2014 Day 3 - Music Festival | Concert | DJ Event in Chicago

Chicago doesn’t just have a long tradition of music; it’s single-handedly responsible for creating the specific musical sub-genre’s of Chicago blues and jazz. And anyone who has ever seen the blues in the Windy City knows that it’s hallowed ground for legendary artists like Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, and Muddy Waters.

But the musical lineage doesn’t end with the blues. Chicago concerts have seen the likes of every kind of musician from rappers such as Kanye West and Common, to rockers like Pete Wentz and Cheap Trick, to old crooners like Nat King Cole and Sam Cooke.

The live music venues in the city are nearly as legendary as the players who have graced them with historical haunts Lincoln Hall, Aragon Ballroom, and the Chicago Theatre, which are now mixed in with more modern classics like Charter One Pavilion, House of Blues, The United Center, and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.

Ultimately though, there’s no better place to see concerts in Chicago than in the smaller, more intimate spots where cagey old blues legends still play their gigs or where up-and-coming artists practice for their moment in the spotlight.
