Bruce in the USA
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’ shoes for more than a decade, imitating his idol’s rugged look, gravelly voice, and strictly blue-collar wardrobe. Throughout the evening, Matt leads E Street doppelgängers such as Matthew 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.
Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band
Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band salutes the King of Pop with an extravagant showcase that spans four decades of his record-breaking career. The seven-piece collective has charmed the globe with its meticulous mimicry, keeping the eternal flame of Michael Jackson burning while giving old and new fans room to dance. With glitzy jackets, the signature glove, and synchronized choreography, Who’s Bad delivers a set stacked high with hits ranging from MJ’s wunderkind days in The Jackson 5 to his hyperbaric epilogue. With muscular horns, tectonic grooves, and ghost-tickling execution, the show gets audiences as close as they can to the legendary juggernaut without having to hang out with Macaulay Culkin.<p>
House of Blues Chicago
Modeled on Prague’s Estates Theatre with its opera boxes and high-domed ceiling, House of Blues Chicago opened in 1996. Keeping with the franchise’s tradition, the stage hides a metal box filled with Mississippi mud, and every artist must recall at least one lover who did them wrong before they are allowed on stage. The Chicago location distinguishes itself with a weekly gospel brunch held every Sunday morning, where big-voiced hallelujahs complement custom omelets, made-to-order waffles, and a chef’s choice carving station.
