Direct from Italy, "Cirque Italia" brings all the artistic beauty and incredible strength, acrobatic and aerial feats of a traditional European-style circus to the Gurnee Mills Mall for a one-of-a-kind aquatic spectacular. This talented Italian troupe performs on a specially designed stage holding 35,000 gallons of water, which transforms the arena into a sparkling wonderland of dancing colored fountains and provides a beautiful moving backdrop for their amazing acts of derring-do. Aside from impeccable artists who juggle, hang from their hair, fly on aerial silks and contort themselves into amazing shapes, "Cirque Italia" also stars the Verticali Act, who somehow manage to sing like Andrea Bocelli while hanging upside down.

With a sound described as "enormously likeable" by Pitchfork and "astronomically fun" by NPR, West Palm Beach rockers Surfer Blood know how to get a crowd moving. The band has toured with the Pixies and Guided by Voices, performed on five continents -- they've just got Africa and Antarctica to go -- and played Coachella and a slew of other festivals. Their fourth album, "Snowdonia", dropped earlier this year, inspiring Pop Matters to say the band's "propulsive brand of beach-punk indie" was "more than just intact, but alive, thriving." See Surfer Blood live in concert at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. Winter opens the show. [less-]

Former Lemonheads lead singer Evan Dando is grunge-rock royalty. In addition to the band's hits, which include "It's a Shame About Ray," "Into Your Arms" and that cover of "Mrs. Robinson" that ruled the radio in 1992, Dando is also well-known for his dalliances with supermodel Kate Moss and his time on People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" list. After the Lemonheads broke up, Dando's first solo album, "Baby I'm Bored", showed he was more than just a grunge rocker, with songs that were mature and tinged with traces of melodic alt-country. Hear Dando perform tracks from that stellar album, as well as other favorites, live in concert when he celebrates the reissue of "Baby I'm Bored" at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. [less-]
