Fan of classic rock? Not if you’ve already forgotten about the Eagles. See this legendary band play at the United Center this month.

She’s been a legend since the ’90s, basically influenced your entire childhood, and you probably dressed as her for Halloween at least twice. You owe it to her to see her in concert this October.

A rising star and a hero to gay youth, Troye Sivan’s music is both unique and influential. Don’t miss his tour through Chicago!
