Justin Timberlake has been touring accross the globe for the past two years following the success of his most recent album The 20/20 Experience. This stop is not his first in Chicago in that span and he returns this winter. The concert will be at the United Center on December 8 and is sure to be a great time.

For fans of hip hop this concert is perfect for you. Odd Future’s very own Tyler the Creator will be performing at Concord Music Hall on December 14. For those unfamilar with Tyler, The Creator and Odd Future, they are known for their eccentricity and their wildly exiting performances so this show is definitely something to put on your radar.
