Metro in Chicago, locally known as The Metro, is a smaller concert hall that has helped emerging artists make it big. In fact, the pilot concert at the Metro was by REM. The Metro has also hosted The Smashing Pumpkins and Chance the Rapper. Founded on the desire to fill the city's void in the art scheme, the Metro is considered an artist's refuge as it focuses on underground music and new artists. Located at 3730 N. Clark Street, just two blocks from Wrigley Field, the Metro can be rented for private parties, company holidays, weddings and other events. Find the best Metro tickets at StubHub.
