Blue suede shoes or not, upcoming Chicago concerts will get you boogying down. The next month boasts an incredible mix of music; from old school classics and ethereal 90's jams, to recent additions to the music scene. If Halloween doesn’t tire you out, get those dancing shoes on and groove to upcoming Chicago concerts.

CocoRosie - Oct. 18

Beautiful sisters who sing… no one can complain about that! CocoRose is one our favorite upcoming (tonight!) Chicago concerts. Don’t miss these two songbirds perform at Metro Smart Bar. Show starts at 9 pm.

Misfits - Oct. 20

Just in time for Halloween. Misfits have had a part in a stage of every person’s life, so don’t miss this opportunity to catch these punk masters live. Misfits will be rocking Concord Music hall on Oct. 20 at 6 pm, and this is bound to be one of the best upcoming Chicago concerts.

Bon Jovi - Oct. 23

Jon Bon Jovi! How is it that Bon Jovi always seems to sound exactly the same? Have they even changed their musical line up since their start in the early 80's? Check out these rockstars get down at United Center. Show starts at 7:30 pm.

Rod Stewart & Steve Winwood - Oct. 18

We want to be forever young also. Has Rod ever seen the rain? We need to wake up Maggie May! We could go on forever… with so many hits, how could we not go see Rod Stewart! Have we told you lately that he is playing at United Center (last one, we promise)? Show starts at 7:30 pm.

Cowboy Junkies - Oct 26

If anyone else misses the 90's, this is the time to relive it. Yes, we know they started out in the late 80's, and are still producing music today, but somehow the 90s just wouldn’t have been the same without Margo Timmin’s sweet vocals guiding us. See them live at City Winery. Show starts at 7 pm.

My Bloody Valentine - Nov. 3

We love them. Can’t stand the name, but we have to give it to them: they make great music. Plus they have been around longer than you would think. Take the opportunities to check out My Bloody Valentine at Aragon Ballroom at 7:30 pm.

Mazzy Star - Nov. 13

If Cowboy Junkies don’t bring you back to the 90's, Mazzy Star will. Take a trip to a time of Doc Martens and floral dresses with Mazzy Star at Vic Theatre for this great Chicago concert. Show starts at 8 pm.

Built to Spill - Nov. 14

With a new album only a few weeks old, Built to Spill are sure to put on a show that will have the younger you (the one who got grounded a few days before the show) jump for joy. Get in on those catchy guitar hooks at Metro Smart Bar.

Cut Copy - Nov. 14

Electronic sensation Cut Copy are making an appearance from down under mid November at the Riviera Theatre. Get those dancing shoes moving on November 14th.
