First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre We Hardly Knew Ye

Your parents called it the World Music Theater. I called it the Tweeter Center.  Now you will try to get used to its new name….Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre. Live Nation has sold the naming rights to Hollywood Casino which owns casinos in Joliet and Aurora.

I have been going to this theatre since the late 90’s, and its a nice little drive to get there out in the burbs in Tinley Park, so you can sit on the lawn and enjoy some Rock N Roll. Warped tours, Ozzfests, and Classic Rock artists. They have all played this venue. Name it all you want as long as you keep it open and bringing in the Artists that will draw. Nothing beats getting away from the traffic and cramped streets outside the venues of Chicago and catching a show near home.
