Ravinia festival adds Cheap Trick, OneRepublic, more

April 11, 2013|By Adam Lukach, @lucheezy | RedEye

Continuing its long-standing tradition of bringing wine-cooler-friendly acts to its patrons, Ravinia Festival has announced four more acts to its concert series this summer. Cheap Trick, Mayer Hawthorne, OneRepublic and Churchill will also entertain the lawn-seated masses this summer, so there's something for dads, "cool dads," really young dads and anyone who maybe likes Adele, respectively.

The latter three will play a triple bill July 23, while Chicago's all-time most hated band will take the stage Aug. 31 for a performance of what are apparently "two classic live albums, 'Cheap Trick at Budokan' and 'Sgt. Pepper Live' " with the Ravinia Festival Orchestra.

The other important addition to the lineup this year is Classic Albums Live, which is a Toronto-based concert series that recreates classic albums live, as its name might suggest. This year, they'll be bringing Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" to the Ravinia stage Sept. 8, so if your dad hits you up for acid Sept. 7, that's why.

Tickets will be on sale beginning at 5 a.m. April 25. See the full lineup and buy tickets at ravinia.org.
