With Lollapalooza still a couple months away, Chicago has a slew of A-list concerts to kick off the summer until one of the world’s best music festivals returns. With shows from Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Diana Ross and many more, Windy City music fans will have plenty of opportunities to see some amazing live music this June.
Check out our list of the 10 can’t miss concerts in Chicago next month!
Post Malone & 21 Savage @ Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island (June 6th)
Ever since the success of his debut single ‘White Iverson’, Post Malone has hit the ground running and has been putting out hit after hit. With tracks like ‘Rock Star’, ‘Congratulations’ and ‘Psycho’, Post Malone sits at the top of the rap game right now with only a few others. Joined by 21 Savage, Post Malone’s summer tour is a must see, so be sure to check it out when Postey visits Northerly Island on June 6th.
Diana Ross @ Ravinia Festival (June 2nd)
For the second night of Highland Park’s Ravinia Festiva’s 2018 season, the legendary Diana Ross is stopping by for a can’t miss concert. Get ready for a memorable night, because Ross is coming out, and she wants Chicago to know! You can catch her at the Ravinia this Saturday.
30 Seconds To Mars @ Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island (June 15th)
Post Malone isn’t the only act that we want to catch at Northerly Island this month, because Jared Leto and the rest of 30 Seconds To Mars is set to perform at the pavilion on June 15th. Just a few days away from the North American leg of their Monolith Tour, 30 Seconds To Mars surely will deliver a great set for their Chicago fans this month.
TDE Championship Tour @ Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre (June 15th)
If Kendrick Lamar wasn’t enough reason to travel to Tinley Park this month, he is bringing his TDE labelmates with him for a monumental performance. With supporting acts like SZA, Schoolboy Q and more, you won’t want to miss out when Top Dawg strolls through the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.
Loverboy & Survivor @ Ravinia Festival (June 3rd)
For its opening weekend, Ravinia is bringing three great shows to Highland Park. In addition to Diana Ross and Los Lobos (who perform this Friday), the weekend will end with a retro performance from Loverboy and Survivor. The ’80s will be back come this Sunday (6/23), and you know you want to be there!
Taylor Swift @ Soldier Field (June 1st & 2nd)
Taylor Swift is the biggest artist in the world, and she will be blessing the Windy City with her 2nd and 3rd performances in Chicago in the past year alone. After a great mini holiday concert in Rosemont, for the B96 Jingle Bash, Taylor Swift is taking her show to the big stage (3 stages actually) at Soldier Field this weekend. The tour is getting rave reviews, and come on… it’s Taylor Swift! Are you ready for it?
Roger Daltrey @ Ravinia Festival (June 23rd & 25th)
Who? That’s right. The Who’s Roger Daltrey will also hit the stage at the Ravinia this month. Performing The Who’s classic 1969 album Tommy, you won’t want to miss out on this amazing experience. Lucky for fans, they’ll have two chances because Daltrey is performing in Highland for two nights (6/23 and 6/25).
Dead & Company @ Alpine Valley (June 22nd & 23rd)
Although Alpine Valley is in Wisconsin, many Chicago residents will make the short drive this month to Alpine Valley to catch John Mayer and The Grateful Dead’s “Dead & Company”. Dead & Co. have been touring for a couple years now and they never disappoint.
The Roots @ Ravinia Festival (June 22nd)
If you couldn’t tell by now, Ravinia’s lineup is stacked this month and this year in general. The diverse festival has a little something for everyone, and thats why you can see “Eye of the Tiger” one night and catch Questlove and The Roots just a couple weeks later. The Roots aren’t just Jimmy Fallon’s house band, they are hip-hop legends and definitely worth the price of admission.
B96 Summer Bash @ Allstate Arena (June 23rd)
Last but definitely not least, the B96 Summer Bash is bringing some of the biggest female names in pop to the Allstate Arena on June 23rd. If you thought seeing Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello and Charli XCX was an impressive cast of girl power for one concert, the B96 Summer Bash is bringing Halsey, Alessia Cara, Meghan Trainor, Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa and more to Chicagoland. With so many big names on one lineup, you won’t want to be anywhere else.
