House of Blues Chicago Tickets
The House of Blues is a chain of 13 unique live music concert venues and restaurants that can be found throughout the United States in several major markets. The first location of the House of Blues was in Harvard Square in Cambridge and was the brainchild of Hard Rock Cafe co-founder Isaac Tigrett and Blue Brothers star Dany Aykroyd. Currently, there are locations in Orlando, Cleveland, Myrtle Beach, Chicago, Atlantic City, Boston, New Orleans, Las Vegas, West Hollywood, San Diego, Anaheim, Dallas and Houston. There was also a temporary location constructed in downtown Atlanta, Georgia across from Centennial Olympic Park that was put in just for the 1996 Summer Olympics, but shut down quickly afterwards. There are also plans to construct a House of Blues in Philadelphia.
This chain of restaurants and concert venues was designed to offer a unique live music and folk art concert venue that provided a relaxed atmosphere for fans who could eat a southern cooked meal while listening to low-key concert performances. While there are some locations who will book smaller acts to play while restaurant patrons eat, the House of Blues has become a major venue in most cities and a popular location for some of the biggest acts in music today to come and play during their tours. This is why many of the House of Blues locations have added on special concert performance areas that can accommodate the bigger stage setups of larger bands.
In 2006, the House of Blues chain was purchased by the nation’s largest live entertainment company; Live Nation. Currently the company operates 12 of the clubs throughout North America and has added new features to make the House of Blues locations a more luxurious entertainment experience. These additions include a VIP membership club in many of the locations known as the Foundation Room. Visitors and residents of the 13 major markets that the House of Blues venues are located in can expect a few things whenever they visit these venues. First, they can expect a real southern feel with southern-inspired cuisine and also they can expect outstanding live music performances from some of the biggest names in music in some of the most intimate settings in the entire country.
