I noticed earlier tonight that The Weeknd had rescheduled his tour dates and it just so happens that his United Center show is taking place on January 23rd 2022. My wife and I love his music so I snagged two tickets!!!!AWESOME!! I booked a hotel for Saturday the 22nd so we can drive up and spend the day in Chicago then wake up Sunday and hang out some more then later that night rock it out to The Weeknd :cool: then crash back at the hotel after the show and then check out on Monday the 24th.

A fucking weekend in Chicago with just my wife sounds amazing...no kids, no work, no worries....just me and her spending some time together in Chicago.

And yeah I know his music doesn't exactly resonate with a lot of you guys but hey it's gonna be a pretty kick ass show and a memory we will have forever just like when we saw The Rolling Stones at Comiskey Park back in 2002.

He's a good performer, should be a blast. I like telling corny puns to make the Mrs smile, and his tunes have plenty to work with.

I know it's a year away, but have fun! Just getting time alone without the kids can remind us married folks why we got married to begin with lol, stoke the flames a bit

While Chicago isn't my #1 wintertime destination (after living there 15 years) the culture and food is still very solid even in the cold.

yup, Chicago definitely isn't my favorite winter destination but I love the city, the people, food, and culture.

OP, sounds like great plan and something you and your wife can look forward to. 11 months from now seems like long ways off but it will be here before you know it. Enjoy it and make memorable memories. That's really the best part about life.

I see now, you consider the lead singer to be your soulmate and wanted to have hair look like it inspired by him.

Also, based on the small sample I heard at the Super Bowl, The Weeknd does sound very 80s-ish...so I'm not surprised a batch of older people would fancy them.

I'm a music geek 32 years young....

I'd say it's more fun visiting during the winter than it is living there throughout the winter.

Paying a pop-star to play a backing track while lip-syncing seems like a complete waste of money to me....

Hopefully you are blessed with decent weather next January and you can enjoy Chicago!

Yeah that's why we don't do it very often. Like I mentioned above the last time we payed to go see some pop stars perform was back in 2002. We are very particular when it comes to seeing musical performances in person. It HAS to be special for both of us.

I know a lot of people didn't like his Super Bowl performance, but I thought it was well done. That said, I really didn't know much about him until I googled him. Holy crap, I had no clue he was in to drugs (MDMA and Oxy) and wrote most of his music that way. I guess not totally surprising because a lot of musicians do, but It's wild he admitted it.

I had tickets to 3 concerts I was really looking forward to last year (2 in Chicago/ 1 in LA), as well as 3 day tickets to Riot Fest. They all got delayed of course, really hoping Riot Fest somehow happens this year. $242 is crazy for a ticket price, the highest tickets I got for last year were $89 and those are VIP haha. Most I've paid was $150 a ticket for Radiohead, it was also at the UC, was a good show but still felt way overpriced, plus $12 beers and $45 T shirts didn't help that.

Hopefully the weather will be like this year (at least in January) which was actually really nice. February then decided that we were spoiled :(.
