Our 40th anniversary concert will be performed at the beautiful Auditorium Theatre.
Located just a few blocks from the host hotel at
50 East Ida B. Wells Drive,

The Auditorium Theatre has a past that follows the path of Chicago’s history, from the Great Chicago Fire and World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 to the great rock and roll era of the 1960s and 1970s to the present. From opera to hip-hop, from political conventions to sporting events, the Auditorium Theatre has played a role in the lives of Chicago citizens for 130 years.
