A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember

2021-10-09

A Day To Remember brought their Re-Entry Tour to Chicago's Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom on October 9th, 2021 and blew the roof off the venue!

From the darkness, an arch lit up on the stage and the member of the band came out to “THX intro”. They then broke into “Right Back At It Again”. The lighting was a little darker then expected for an opening song. They shot out confetti and streamers right away which was exciting and no one was ready for so early in the show!

Even with Covid and all the protocols in place for that, no ADTR show would be complete without crowd surfers. And they start almost as soon as the first song began.

About 7 songs in was “Have Faith in Me” and Jeremy asked for the ladies to get on top of the guys shoulders and to sing along. It was incredible see so many people...

Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin is currently on a co-headlining tour with Enrique Inglasias which had back to back nights at Chicago's Allstate Arena. I was lucky enough to attend the first night and watch Ricky Martin close out the show!

The setlist for his show was amazing and he opened with what is undoubtedly his biggest hit and one of my favorite songs, “Livin’ La Vida Loca”. With the lighting you got major Las Vegas vibes. His dancers even came out with giant feather fans. The lighting was really fantastic and there is a spotlight on him most of the time. It really makes him stand out from his dancers.

Covid protocols were of top concern and the dancers wore face masks during the entire set.

Ricky used entire stage, from the cat walk to the 2nd smaller stage. He was everywhere and...

Enrique Inglasis and Ricky Martin played 2 nights at the Allstate Arena in Chicago for their 2021 fall tour and Enrique's set was glorious. Enrique played 10 songs. Then he came back out with a 4 song encore which featured his most popular songs! His performance ended with balloons, confetti and his 2010 hit single “I Like It”! Fans went nuts for it!

The set opened with “I’m a Freak”, “Chasing The Sun”, and “I like how it feels”.

Then midway through the set, he moved to a smaller stage to perform a few acoustic songs including “Cuando me enamoro” which fans really liked and sang along too.

Enrique is absolutely wonderful to see live! He doesn't stop moving the entire time and covers the entire stage. It's so much fun for the entire audience. The stage set up included a catwalk with a...

Sebastián Yatra

Sebastián Yatra

2021-09-30

Sebastián Yatra is currently on tour with Ricky Martin and Enrique Igalsias as their opener and man oh man does he put on an energetic but amazing performance! He really got the crowd warmed up and ready for the co-headliners.

Sebastián performed 8 songs, opening with “Traicionera” and closed his set with “Pareja Del Año”.

He definitely blew my expectations out of the water with his performance! Sebastián had back up dancers to accompany him on stage and he just seemed to have fun up there making a connection to the audience. The crowd loved Sebastián's performance and just seemed to have fun during his set even getting up from their seats to dance.

The lighting started off quite dark which was a little disappointing, but it did improve a lot after...

Blue October

Blue October

Blue October brought their “This is What I Live For” tour to the House of Blues - Chicago on September 17th, 2021. Show was incredible as a Blue October fan myself and was almost a sold out show!

The show opened with Daylight and then they continued with songs off their new album. Intermixed in the set, they played several of their older songs like Say it, Into the Ocean, and Hate Me and several other older hits to the enjoyment of the long time fans of their music.

Justin Furstenfeld always makes sure to tell the fans how thankful he is for everyone coming out and being here with him. It really means for the band and the fans to see the genuine aprreciation that each has to the other.

Covid protocols were in full effect with Ryan Delahoussaye even making sure to wear a mask on the stage...

Yam Haus

Yam Haus

2021-09-17

Yam Haus is an open coming band from Hudson, Minnesota currently on opening for Blue October during this Fall/Winter (2021)!

Their stage presence is so much fun and full of energy. They really warm up the crowd and get you moving and feeling loose!

Lars Pruitt (vocals/guitar), Seth Blum (electric guitar), Jake Felstow (drums), and Zach Beinlich (bass) all caming out in matching suits. It was absolutely adorable seeing this 4 member group all dressed alike!

One things that was truly endearing is that Yam Haus takes a small video at the beginning of every show so their families can see how great they are doing on tour. I kind of wish more artists would do this so their family know...

Pitbull

2021-08-22

Pitbull brought the I Feel Good tour to Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on August 22nd and he didn’t fail to deliver. The crowd absolutely loved it and everyone definitely did Feel Good at the end of the night.

Pitbull opened up his set with Don’t Stop The Party, which is an all time party favorite! The tour’s namesake I Feel Good features Anthony Watts. Anthony is originally from Chicago and to everyone’s surprise Pitbull had him come out on stage to perform the song in front of his home town! No one seemed to be expecting this and the crowd went absolutely nuts.

Pitbull took small breaks between songs to shed some light on stuff that he has gone through as a Cuban American and at the end of the night gave a huge thank you to his band, dancers, Anthony Watts, and the crowd but mostly to Live Nation for helping put together this tour and making it happen!

Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey Stirling

2021-08-20

Lindsey Stirling played at the Huntington Bank Pavilion on August 20th for an amazing night of music and fun. This was a rescheduled show as the original was delayed due to weather. It was totally worth the wait.

Lindsey isn't just an artist, she's a performer. She runs, jumps, and dances across the entire stage, all while playing her violin. Another really cool thing Lindsey Stirling did was play violin while in a harness and being lifted off of the stage.

Her 16 song set lasted just over an hour and a half and included songs from her new album "Artemis" as well as a selection from her previous albums and a little Disney medley. It was great!

Lindsey is a very well known, not just for her talents of playing the violin, but she also....

How Not To Be Happy

Album Review

2021/08/27

Get a fresh taste of British Punk with the sophomore release from GLOO. How Not To Be Happy hits the airwaves this Friday, August 27th. This 10 track offering has teased with the early release of Ride and Swimming in Your Sea (see the "Featrued Media" section).

The true highlight form the forth coming album is Track #4: No One Give's A Fuck. It should become an anthem for the Anti-Social Media crowd. When you see people posting on Facebook, Insta, Tik Tok, etc. and just want to tell them, No One Give's A F#ck. I absolutely love this song and can't wait for the video so I can start linking it to all those useless posts.
