Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga

Summer is finally upon us! We need go outside as frequently as possible, considering the entire months of January and February were spent under a comforter. Good thing the summer music festival season is now in full swing, not to mention the outdoor concert season. Spring Awakening brings many of the top DJs in the world to Soldier Field. There are some massive live shows under roofs as well. U2 returns to our sports arenas, scaling down from Soldier Field to United Center. Bette Midler also pops in to belt some tunes in United Center. Explore our picks of the top concerts in Chicago in June.
