Fleetwood Mac for November Shows 

They are a rock music giant; one of the highest selling bands of all time.  3 men, 2 women, great songs, beautiful harmonies, and myriad problematic internal affairs.  We have waited a very long time to re-approach this band and give them their due. 

Please join us on Friday November 4th at Wire, and Wednesday November 9th at Martyrs, as Tributosaurus becomes Fleetwood Mac. 

We’ve done them once before; years ago, but Tributosaurus was not what it is now.  Also, none of you were there…don’t lie. It’s time to do the Mac justice, with all of our passion and resources.  The right guests will join us to deliver exactly what your ears expect and deserve. 

Fleetwood Mac emerged from the late 60’s British blues scene with Peter Green on guitar, found limited success in the early 70’s with Bob Welch as front-man, and then invited a young Lindsay Buckingham to join the band.  He insisted on bringing his girlfriend and partner Stevie Nicks.  That worked out pretty well. 

Buckingham and Nicks lay their intense and complicated relationship bare as the basis for so many phenomenal songs.  But Christine and John McVie can rival them for romantic drama as they hold down the rhythm section. And on drums, the weird and wonderful Mick Fleetwood is the heartbeat of the thing; the only original member to last through the entire run of the band. 

Rumors is an all-time great record, and will be delved into heavily. But there’s much more. 

Come to the shows, and dive deeply with us into Fleetwood Mac.  After the show, you can go your own way.

Thanksgiving is here - and you know what that means... 

The night before Thanksgiving is traditionally the biggest bar night of the year, and Tributosaurus has established a tradition too.  We love this show more than any other, and we’re going to keep bringing it to you as long as you want it - The Boss.   

Springsteen is famous for his live shows, and we will strive to deliver that energy and joy to the crowd at Wire on Wednesday, November 25th. We will be visiting the raw early E Street jams, and the more thoughtful introspective Bruce of later years, and everything in between. This is a show for the dyed-in-the-wool Springsteen acolyte, as well as the casual fan - all of what makes him an American Icon is here, and it all rocks.  Horns, strings, multiple guitars and keys, and a few special guests to boot - all in a state of the art room designed for your comfort and fun - what could be better?   

This show sells out every year, so don't wait too long....

Red Album Dec 9th Show   /   Blue Album Dec 10th Show

The expanse of the Tributosaurus Beatles series requires a special venue, and it returns to the perfect place. The Copernicus Center Theater was the first movie palace in Chicago designed for talking pictures, and it has been restored to its’ original condition and outfitted for live performance. It is incredibly convenient - located just a block from the Kennedy on Lawrence, and 2 blocks from Metra and Blue Line stops at Jefferson Park Terminal. From the starry sky ceiling to the marble clad lobbies, everything about this theater impresses, and the acoustics are fantastic too.  

Tickets for both shows go on sale Thursday October 27th, at 10 AM, on and, as well as at Tickets are ONLY available online (no box office sales). The seating is assigned, so you’ll want to get yours ordered as soon as you can to reserve the section you want - and bring your kids to experience this – they are both ALL AGES shows.  Partial proceeds will go to benefit the Betty Hemmert Music Scholarship Fund.

Tributosaurus Beatles Project: The Red Album (1962-1966) on Friday December 9th

The Red Album (1962-1966) brings together 28 A side singles from the early years, only Beatles originals, beginning with 1963’s “Love Me Do.”   

This Tributosaurus show will start with the boys at their most sparse, for innumerable iconic early hits like “She Loves You,” “All My Loving,” and “Eight Days A Week.”  Then you’ll see and hear The Beatles’ musical evolution with the use of strings on “Yesterday,” the folk influence of flute and maraca on “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” and the debut of a sitar on “Norwegian Wood.”   You’ll notice the maturation of their songwriting through John Lennon’s personal lyrics on “Help,” Paul McCartney’s exquisite “Michelle,” and their perfect collaboration with George Martin on “In My Life.” 

The Red Album show will re-connect you with the band’s raw beginnings, and remind you exactly how they grew towards the complexities of their late period.  You’ll know every melody, and will hear them lovingly re-created with the instrumental exactitude of the highest Tributosaurus standards.            

Tributosaurus Beatles Project: The Blue Album (1967-1970) on Saturday December 10th. 

The Blue Album (1967-1970) compiles 26 A side singles from the band’s late period, only Beatles originals, beginning with the brilliantly executed experimentation of “Strawberry Fields Forever.”   

This Tributosaurus show demands a massive orchestra, for epics like “Day In The Life,” “I Am The Walrus,” and “Hey Jude.”   You’ll lie in bed with John and Yoko for “All You Need Is Love,” sit in the garden with George for “Here Comes The Sun,” and rock with Paul on the roof of the studio for “Get Back.”  Tributosaurus will gently weep from the White Album, come together via Abbey Road, and eventually follow the long and winding road to Let It Be. 

The Blue Album show will bring the best of the expansive orchestral Beatles into your consciousness with new clarity.  You’ll finally see these songs performed in a way the band itself never provided; with full faithful instrumentation and on stage harmony.
