Looks like the Dolans are gonna buy up all the cool venues around the country and ruin them all. I wonder if they are gonna name it the Fillmore like they did with Irving Plaza.

Interesting. Hope they don't tear down the marquee or rename this place. Would love to see ABB at the Chicago Theater. Beacon Midwest???

Hell yeah!....I'm sure its been discussed, but I'm really becoming less and less a fan of Rosemont every year. I had some $70 year old lady screaming at me for having a beer this year....sweet delicious beer.

Chicago Theatre really is one of the best venues I've ever been to.

We were hoping for this (the Beacon Midwest, not the sale to the Dolans) several years ago when it seemed a new tradition was developing - prior to the move to the Rosemont Theater. Maybe if we moved O'Hare to the other side of State Street . . .

Glad you mentioned Julie - need to keep her restaurant in mind for next time I'm over in Chicago. And the Rosemont is ok but I much prefer the venue and surrounding area of Chicago Theater - easier to get around downtown IMO. .

AP Newswire:

CHICAGO - The Chicago Theatre, famous for its landmark marquee, is being sold to New York's Madison Square Garden Entertainment, according to a published reports. In turn, the Arizona Board of Tourism has made a deal with MSG Ent. Inc. to bring the theatre to the shores of Lake Havasu. The move is the largest to ever be attempted, and will take an expected 9 months, and could cost over 3 billion dollars. Once the move has been made, the Arizona Board of Tourism plans to turn the theatre into the largest roadside trinket store west of the Mississippi. Commuters along the old Route 66 should expect delays during this move.

LOL. Will they be putting the theater anywhere near the London Bridge?

Just love the Chicago Theatre. Actually planning on doing one of the tours one day soon at lunch. I so dislike going to Rosemont. Some fine shows coming to the Theatre. Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello playiing three nights this month. John Fogerty also just booked a show. Please bring my band back here. Or give me another week of shows like they did at the Riviera a few years back. It was almost a mini midwest Beacon. My restaurant is a little out of the way of these venues but would love to have all of you stop in. I may have to run a special offering; a discount to anyone with a Allman Brothers ticket stub or tattoo, LOL.

Julie - where is your restaurant and what is the name? I know we discussed in NYC but I was ummmm not in a mindset to pay attention and remember ( ). Do get over to Chicago a few times yearly, though, and my sis and I have been talking about looking your place up next time we were in town.

Next year I definitely want to see the Allman Brothers in Chicago. I had so much fun there this summer when I was in town for Clapton's Crossroads Festival!
