Despite a couple years of cancellations, postponements and more throughout the live music world, many great concerts are scheduled to bless fans in Chicago this February.
From huge arenas shows with Elton John and Tyler The Creator, to more intimate but equally anticipated sold out shows with Gracie Abrams and Louis Tomlinson, if you live in the Chicago area and you’re a fan of live music, there is something for everyone in the Windy City this month.
Check out our list of the 5 can’t miss concerts in Chicago in February!
Gracie Abrams @ The Metro (February 8th)
Gracie Abrams is scheduled to perform in Chicago a number of times in the coming months. First up is her headlining performance at The Metro, one of the first stops of her “This Is What It Feels Like” tour which is making a number of stops throughout the U.S. in the coming weeks. Following her Metro performance, the ‘Mess It Up’ singer/songwriter will return in support of Olivia Rodrigo’s back-to-back performances at the Aragon Ballroom in April. All three performances have been sold out for many weeks, but if you were lucky enough to get tickets to one or all three, you are due for a great time. Visit the Metro’s official website for more information.
Tyler The Creator @ the United Center (February 22nd)
The always entertaining and equally funny, Tyler The Creator, is bringing his biggest headlining tour to date to the United Center on February 22nd. Performing in support of his latest LP, “Call Me If You Get Lost”, the Los Angeles rapper is bringing friends and collaborators like Kali Uchis, Vince Staples and Teezo Touchdown along for the ride. Fans can still purchase tickets for the show at Ticketmaster.com.
Elton John @ the United Center (February 5th)
Elton John brought the first of his 2-night residency at the United Center to the Second City last night and is scheduled to blow fans away yet again tonight with another packed performance. Following previous Chicago stops and a number of postponements, Sir Elton’s farewell tour seems never-ending but we don’t want it to end. You can visit Ticketmaster to scoop up some of the remaining tickets to see one of the best to ever do it.
Yungblud @ the Aragon Ballroom (February 27th)
If one artist from this list will match the wild energy of Tyler the Creator, it will be Yungblud. The “I Think I’m Okay” English alt-rock singer is very unpredictable and will surely give fans something to talk about on February 27th at the Aragon. Tickets still remain at Live Nation for this anticipated performance.
Louis Tomlinson @ the Chicago Theatre (February 23rd)
Two years following the release of his 2020 debut album, Louis Tomlinson is finally able to tour in the U.S. in support of his LP, ‘Walls’. The former One Direction singer already has a very successful solo career, and following a huge theater tour throughout the U.S., the sky is the limit for Tomlinson. Tickets are all gone, so consider yourself lucky if you can catch Louis live at the Chicago Theatre this month.
