Until just recently, the iconic Chicago Theatre has sat idle and empty throughout the heights of the COVID-19 pandemic. It wasn’t until recently the Chicago Theatre reopened their doors for shows of all kinds. From concerts, to speakers, comedy shows and in between; these are 8 of the big-ticket shows coming to the Chicago Theatre in the coming weeks.

9/18 | Future Islands

9/19 | Neil deGrasse Tyson: Cosmic Collisions

Neil deGrasse Tyson will bring the Cosmic Collisions show to The Chicago Theatre on September 19.


“All the things that go bump in the night (and in the day). And yes, the universe wants to kill you: On occasion these collisions — asteroid & comet impacts on Earth, render life extinct. Learn why and how this happens, and what we are doing about it.”

9/23 | Mt. Joy & Trampled by Turtles

9/24 | Rufus Wainwright & José González

The Unfollow the Rules In The Local Valley Tour hits the Chicago Theatre on September 24th as these two legends of song team up for what is expected to be a memorable show.

9/25 | Jim Jefferies

The comedian from down under. Jim Jefferies brings a decades-long critically acclaimed career to the Chicago Theatre with his ‘The Moist Tour’ on September 25th. For an evening of stomach crunching laughs, get tickets to this one.

9/29 & 9/30 | Little Big Town

The Grammy, AMA, and CMA award winning country music group Little Big Town hits the stage at the Chicago Theatre with not one but two shows to close out September.

10/1 & 10/2 | Hasan Minhaj

If you’ve watched Netflix, or The Daily Show, at all in the past three years then you are undoubtably familiar with the comedy giant that is Hasan Minhaj. Now, you can check out his latest stand-up act The King’s Jester at the Chicago Theatre for not one, but two nights to start October.

10/3 | James Blake

James Blake headlines my most listened to work playlist, so an October 3rd show at the Chicago Theatre might be just what I need to begin my month.
