After tour dates were postponed in late 2023 under doctor’s advice as the Boss recovered from peptic ulcer disease, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were back on the road – all the more reason to celebrate the return of summer music.

Singer-songwriter Sierra Ferrell played two sold-out shows at Chicago’s Thalia Hall on April 23 and 24, 2024. Her setlist included songs from her latest album, “Trail of Flowers” (“American Dreaming,” “Fox Hunt,” “I Could Drive Youi Crazy”), along with “In Dreams,” “Jeremiah,” and “Why’d Ya Do It.”

In a recent interview with Anthony Mason for “CBS Mornings,” Ferrell, who said she was singing as soon as she could talk (“I was a pretty annoying child!”), struggled for years – hitchhiking, train hopping, and busking her way across the country, while running from addiction. Her life began to change in Nashville, playing Honky Tonk Tuesday Nights at American Legion Post 82. A buzz started to build, leading to a record deal. “Long Time Coming” was released in 2019.

“It’s kind of funny how the attention comes, because it’s like: nothing, nothing, nothing, all at once,” she said.

Uli Jon Roth

On a tour of North America, German guitar virtuoso Uli Jon Roth stopped at Reggies in Chicago on April 20, 2024, to perform two sets: One, an electric guitar interpretation of music by Mozart; and second, songs from his time with the rock band Scorpions.

His guitar features two extra strings – one tuned to go as high as a violin, and the other as deep as a cello.

He closed out the show with “The Sails of Charon.”

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
