Chicago House of Blues

Opened in 1996, the House of Blues in Chicago is perhaps the most famous and impressive of the 13 Houses of Blues across the country (see this post for more on the House of Blues in Boston). The House of Blues organizations was founded in 1992, in an effort to provide good venues around the United States for the blues. The blues are not the only thing on the menu, however; many artists simply come because they recognize the value of performing in such historic, well-constructed venues. For example, Passion Pit and Meek Mill will soon be coming to the House of Blues in Chicago. Also, check out all of the upcoming concerts in Chicago and the top concerts this summer in Chicago.
