Vision’s winter concert preview


This winter was not only great for holiday fun and new beginnings, but also a time to head into the city for some great concerts. The next few months bring in artists varying from easy-going and homely bands like Little Big Town to the modern hip-hop sounds of G-Eazy. Here are a few of the many concerts coming here to the Chicagoland area:

Lana Del Rey and Jhene Aiko
The “Lust for Life” artist is following the former B2K star in a show that is sure to Del Rey’s unique style. The entrancing music Del Rey provides would seem to mesh well with the modern R&B sound of Aiko. Both artists will perform at the United Center on January 11.

St. Vincent
This artist blends electropop, experimental rock, soft rock and jazz to create a both enchanting, techno feel. Most known for her hit single “New York,” St. Vincent will be performing a sold-out show at the Chicago Theatre on Jan. 12. Her concert will likely feature songs from her newest album, “MASSEDUCTION,” as well as music from previous albums, such as “Love This Giant” and “Strange Mercy.”

The alternative rock band is heading to Aragon Ballroom on February 14, performing songs from their most recent album “Run,” which was released in 2015. The band’s most famous single “Sail,” will likely make its way onto the playlist as well.

This hip-hop artist is promoting his newest album, “The Beautiful & Damned,” as well as his most famous record, “When It’s Dark Out,” which was released in 2015. He arrives at Aragon Ballroom on March 9 ready to party to songs like “No Limit” and “You Got Me.”

Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled
