00213798_27TicketLodgeTruth be told, concert announcements have been pretty dry for awhile.  So, while we wait for the next big tour to be announced, check out the 2015 Ravinia Line up.  Ravinia Festival is a permanent fixture in the northern Chicago suburbs.  The outdoor festival got its start way back in 1904 and is the oldest outdoor music festival in the United States.  It’s a 36 acre park and people often bring blankets and picnic foods (and usually a glass of Chardonnay).  There are all sorts of shows to take in for every walk of life from children’s shows, pop stars, country music, symphonies, broadway musicals, blues, jazz and so much more.

I’ve highlighted what I think are the best shows of the summer.  Check ’em out!
