October Concerts in Chicago 2020


October certainly appears to be superstar month in Chicago’s music scene calendar, as several global icons touch down in the area to perform live shows as part of their respective world tours. Here are just the highlights of some of the amazing concerts in Chicago in October 2018.

Superstars Schedule in Chicago in October 2018

Singer-songwriter-extraordinaire James Bay comes to Chicago on 1 October, performing at Aragon Ballroom. Bay brings with him gallons of critical acclaim from his native England, where he has won the Brit Award for Best British Male Solo Artist in 2016. He was nominated for three Grammy awards for Best New Artist, Best Rock Album, and Best Rock Song. His debut album “Chaos and the Calm” charted in the US at number 15 on the Billboard 200, and top 10 in several countries. He released his second album “Electric Light” in May 2018 and embarked on the “Electric Light Tour”

The UK’s favourite son, the megastar Ed Sheeran performs what is set to be a sell-out concert at Chicago’s Soldier Field on 4 November. With so many hits under his belt, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone that hasn’t heard of Sheeran. Spotify named him their most streamed artist in 2017 with his smash hit single “Shape of You” amassing over billion streams. The resulting album ÷ (pronounced “divide”) was the number one selling album in both the US and UK. Aside from his own catalogue, he has written some of the biggest hits for artists like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift and more.

Fresh off performing at the Super Bowl, the United Centre plays host to global icon Justin Timberlake on his “Man of the Woods” tour. Reeling off Timberlake’s accomplishments at this point is an exercise in futility as he has provided hit after hit for several decades. His fifth album “Man of the Woods” blended his folksy-country Tennessee roots with his trademark pop-R&B for a sonic tribute to his wife, the actress Jessica Biel and their son, in what was certainly a musical curveball for his fanbase, but certainly a smash hit of an album.

Retiring Icons of Entertainment

Some of the most revered icons in modern music are set to play their final Chicago concerts in October 2018.

A sixty-year career, over 30 albums and one of the leading musical voices for change and justice, it’s not hyperbole to call Joan Baez a folk music legend. Baez was inducted into the Rock &Roll Hall of Fame in 2017. She also has an Amnesty International award named after her in recognition of her outstanding advocacy for various disenfranchised groups throughout her career. Baez released her first record in over a decade, “Whistle down the wind”, in 2018 and embarked on what will be her final tour, the “Fare Thee Well” tour. She will be performing at the Chicago Theatre on 5 October.

Also rounding up his touring career is the inimitable Elton John, who is embarking on his 3-year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” global tour, taking in Chicago’s United Centre on 26 October. With one of the most successful musical careers in modern history, John will bring his unmistakable sound and countless classic songs to the Chicago concert-goers. As he winds down what has been a phenomenal career, purchasing a ticket surely should be a given for any music fan.

Events like these are any music lover's dream and tickets are set to sell out within minutes. So many things to do, so little time. That’s why Feeltix is here to help you stay up-to-date.
