Shows will take place across various venues around the city, so get all the details here.

32 years after his smash single “Finally” climbed the Billboard charts, CeCe Peniston is still going strong. Ready to embark on the next chapter of her life, Peniston is reinventing herself with a new look and new music. She’ll perform new tunes along with classics at her City Winery performance on Thursday, January 19th at 8 PM. Tickets are available here.

The New Year parties may be over, but Future is keeping the celebration going on his “One Big Party Tour,” and he’s bringing all his friends. Lil Jairmy, Doe Boy, Double 0, Rob 49, Baby Face Ray, Boston Richie, Est Gee, and Kodak Black all join the fun when the tour rolls in the United Center on Friday, January 21st at 7 PM.
