Add to Calendar 08/25/2017 06:30 PM 08/25/2017 10:00 PM Get the LED Out @ RiverEdge Since 2015, Get the Led Out has been rocking audiences at RiverEdge Park, and this summer the boys are back for more of the same. The songs you know and love will be played to perfection and as you remember them, but don’t worry, these incredible rockers never repeat a show. Using six guys instead of four, Get the Led Out does something even Led Zeppelin couldn’t do: perform their songs live as they were heard on the studio albums. They are the only cover band out there that’s trying to “replicate those records,” lead singer Paul Sinclair said. From the first Led Zeppelin album to In Through the Out Door, their music is powerful, explosive, authentic and just flat out amazing. Although this is the third year they’ve played at RiverEdge Park, these guys are in demand and we can’t guarantee they’ll be back next year. With over 6,000 fans coming out to the park last year, we’re expecting this show to sell out. Get your tickets now for a musical experience you’ll never forget. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to sit in the grass. Gates open at 6:30pm and concert starts at 8pm. Before your arrival, please read the RiverEdge Park policies. http://riveredgeaurora.com/visit/ RiverEdge Park, 360 N Broadway St, Aurora, IL 60505, USA

Million Dollar Quartet- Live at the Paramount
09/13/2017 12:00 AM - 10/30/2017 12:00 AM

Add to Calendar 09/13/2017 12:00 AM 10/30/2017 12:00 AM Million Dollar Quartet- Live at the Paramount There was no plan for Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins to record together on December 4, 1956, but as fate would have it, they did and left behind a historic and mind-blowing album. Million Dollar Quartet tells that story, with all the raw energy and monumental talent you’ve come to expect from these music giants. Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical and a win for Best Supporting Actor, Million Dollar Quartet features some of the biggest and best songs of all time, including “Peace in the Valley,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line,” “Hound Dog” and “Great Balls of Fire.” This is the show that ran in Chicago from 2008 to 2016 and spanned more than 2,500 performances. Critics called it “the most exuberant theatrical event,” “dazzling from first beat to last” and “the best live rock ‘n’ roll show I have ever seen.” It is the third longest-running show in Chicago theatre history and the Paramount is about to do its production of it. Be there. paramountaurora.com/events/million-dollar-quartet/ Paramount Theatre, 23 E Galena Blvd, Aurora, IL 60506, USA
