Are you looking for something to do after work this week? Then consider catching a concert. From country to pop and rock, the Chicago area is hosting a number of musical performances. Here’s a list of some of the must-see musical performances in Chicago for the week of March 16-20, 2015.
Bob’s Burgers Live
You’ve watched countless episodes of TV show “Bob’s Burgers” in one sitting, and you’ve reblogged and quoted your favorite lines from the show ad nauseum. Now it’s time for something different by catching Bob’s Burgers Live on stage at The Chicago Theatre (175 N. State St., Chicago) on March 20 at 8 p.m. The show includes a table read of the show and includes H. John Benjamin, John Roberts and more. Tickets start at $29.50.
While you could listen to songs like “Give Me Back My Hometown,” “The Outsiders” and “Talladega” on your favorite device, what’s the fun in that? Instead, consider purchasing tickets to country music star Church’s performance at Allstate Arena (6920 N. Mannheim Rd., Rosemont) on March 20 at 7:30 p.m. The Drive-By Truckers are also scheduled to perform.
Pop and rock band Maroon 5 are performing in Chicago as part of their tour on March 19. The band, whose hits include “Animals,” “Payphone” and “This Love,” are performing at United Center (1901 W. Madison St., Chicago) starting at 7:30 p.m. The show also includes performances by MAGIC! and Rozzi Crane.
Kick back and relax with performances by a few indie musicians this week, too. Brooklyn-based rock band The Shondes are performing at The Hideout (1354 W. Wabansia Ave., Chicago) on March 20 starting at 10 p.m. Strawberry Jacuzzi and Hailey Wojcik are both scheduled to perform, and tickets are $10.
