Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see Bruce In the USA at the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. For $19, you get one ticket for main-floor level A seating in sections 1 and 4, rows B–Z; or sections 2 and 3, rows M–DD, on Friday, April 13, at 8 p.m. (up to a $46.50 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).
Born to run and raised to rock socks off, Bruce In the USA puts on a rip-roaring tribute to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. From conquering the Vegas strip to packing theaters across the land, the band’s uncanny imitation of a Springsteen show leaves audiences glistening in elated sweat. Lead singer Matt Ryan, from the popular Vegas Legends in Concert revue, has been wearing The Boss’s shoes for more than a decade, imitating his idol’s rugged look, gravelly voice, and strictly blue-collar wardrobe. Throughout the near two-hour bash, Matt leads E Street doppelgangers such as Sully, the Little Steven surrogate, and Dave McLaurin, the Clarence Clemons stand-in, through a marathon of prominent hits such as “Dancing in the Dark” and “Glory Days,” along with deeper cuts certain to assuage hardcore, dyed-in-the-wool-bandana fans.
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
