September 1 | Hall & Oates
Nobody gets a tattoo of just the yang symbol, or watches movies with just Hardy. If ticket sales struggled for recent solo gigs by Hall & Oates, it’s because, dammit, we want Hall and Oates. Ravinia. 7:30pm; $27–$80.
September 2 | Allen Toussaint
Pianist Toussaint performs from his New Orleans–inspired album, The Bright Mississppi, at the Chicago Jazz Festival. Grant Park. 8:30pm; free.
