Chicago shows we love this week: Imagine Dragons, Bette Midler and more

With the weather forecast filled with rain, rain and more rain this week in Chicago, it only makes sense to stay indoors. However, you don’t have to stay at home and watch TV, either. Grab an umbrella and meet your friends at these indoor concerts in Chicago for the week of June 15-19.

Imagine Dragons

For Chicago-based fans of the band Imagine Dragons, June 15 probably can’t arrive soon enough. That’s when the band performs at Allstate Arena (6920 N. Mannheim Rd., Rosemont) as part of their tour Smoke + Mirrors. The band, whose hit songs include “Demons,” “Radioactive” and “I Bet My Life,” will take the stage at 7 p.m.

Professor Mic

Start your week on the right foot with a performance by Chicago-based musician Professor Mic. The musician, whose album Unplanned was released earlier this year, will be joined by Mvrcus David, Sin Cordell and King Millzi at The Abbey (3420 W. Grace St., Chicago) on June 15 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and you must be 21 and up to get in.

Della Mae

Add some Americana music to your after work plans by catching Nashville-based band Della Mae in concert on June 16 at 8 p.m. at Schubas (3159 N. Southport Ave., Chicago). The acclaimed quartet’s eponymous album was released in May to warm reviews. The band will be joined by Wandering Boys. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door, and you must be 21 and up to attend.

Bette Midler

Are you in need of some “Divine Intervention”? If so, then you’re in luck. The multi-talented Bette Midler is performing at United Center (1901 W. Madison St., Chicago) on June 18 as part of her tour Divine Intervention. The show starts at 8 p.m.

The Maccabees

Indie rock band The Maccabees is here stateside, and will perform on June 19 in Chicago’s Thalia Hall (1807 S. Allport Ave.). The London-based band, who recently released the singles “Marks To Prove It” and “Something Like Happiness,” will release their fourth album in August. The show in Chicago starts at 8 p.m. and also includes the musical acts Brother George and Martin Van Ruin.
