Metro History

Come and experience the best of today's music at one of the most popular concert venues in Chicago, as the Metro has been around for a while at this point and only seems to get better with each passing year. Metro has been at the forefront of the music scene since its inception in the 1980s, created to showcase the music that was coming out of the music and art scene of Chicago during the late 1970s. From there, the Metro gained a reputation of bringing in cutting edge musicians for concerts that create plenty of buzz around town leading up to the start of the show.

The Metro began as a hip 80s dance club that offered patrons the chance to hear tracks from legendary DJs like Frankie Knuckles and Joe Smooth. Eventually, bands like R.E.M. and Naked Raygun would play early shows at the Metro, creating a reputation for bringing in some of the best bands on the music scene in the process. Even though Chicago obviously has lots to offer when it comes to entertainment, the Metro remains one of the very best and a place that the locals always have their eye on.


Metro Events

Metro has become one of the hottest locations for up-and-coming musicians in the country. And you can be there to witness the next R.E.M., Jane's Addiction or Smashing Pumpkins that performs on the iconic stage that has become a staple of the entertainment scene around the Windy City in recent decades. Legendary musicians like James Brown, Iggy Pop and Prince have all graced the stage at the Metro, and a Bob Dylan was also a milestone for the venue as well. Other bands that have played their first performances at the famous venue are The White Stripes, The Killers, Jimmy Eat World, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Fall Out Boy. With a little something for everyone, this is a venue that you definitely don't want to miss out on as the calendar continues to bring top-tier bands to the stage on the regular.


Metro Trivia

Did you know that Oasis played concerts as unknowns in their attempt to break into the U.S.?

Popular British band Oasis became all the rage by the mid-1990s, but before that they were making their rounds at some top music venues in the country. One of their stops was at the Metro, where Oasis played as well as other British cross-over bands like Manic Street Preachers.


Metro Experience

If you're looking for a great night of live music that will have you glad that you're not still sitting at home, you're definitely in the right spot. The Metro has gained an amazing reputation over the years for a reason, and it's not because there is a lack of excitement from one show to the next. Come out and join the other music lovers and you might just end up with an experience that you'll be talking about a long time after it's over. Though the capacity is just 1,100, it's also the perfect size for getting to know an up-and-coming band, and it won't take long to understand why this is a venue consistently sought out by musical icons.
