From the city's beginning, Chicago has always taken something good and made it great. It transformed pizza into deep-dish. The humble hot dog became the Maxwell Street Polish. Now, a local band has taken Metallica and turned it into Blackened, the "Ultimate Metallica tribute." Blackened is all the music and mayhem of Metallica ramped up to 11. Lights, pyro foggers, lasers, confetti cannons, T-shirt launchers, balloon drops, giveaways, a fire breather and a snow machine make for a concert experience like no other. Experience Metallica done Chicago-style as performers John Dent, Vince Ochwat, James Snedeker Jr. and Mike Streicher take the stage. Learn More

I thought their performance would be better. I was disappointed. A certain blond's voice was not up to par. The other vocalists were still great, but I didn't see the energy I was expecting. Not to mention, they didn't even play for a full 90 minutes. They started late and left early. That made me feel jipped. They performed Private Idaho wonderfully! Hence, the 4 star rating- I guess they're just getting old.

From the timeless gems of "Rock Lobster," "Planet Claire" and "Private Idaho" to the more recent classics of "Channel Z," "Love Shack" and "Roam," the B-52s' unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time the music begins.
In 2008 the B-52s released their first new album in 16 years, the aptly titled Funplex. With its primal guitar hooks, driving drums and the B-52s' unmistakable vocal style, Funplex is instantly recognizable as quintessential and contemporary B-52s. Newsweek magazine declared, “Like a sonic shot of vitamin B12, the dance floor beats, fuzzy guitar riffs and happy, shiny lyrics keep the energy going.”
The B52s are Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson, Fred Schneider and Kate Pierson.
