Blues University® and the City of Chicago invite music fans to celebrate the vitality of the blues, from Chicago and beyond, on Saturday, January 16th. Join the Chicago Blues Tour™, a "pub crawl" event, connecting 8 of Chicago's famous lounges featuring live blues as it departs from the "hub" of the tour, Lizzie McNeill's, at 400 N. McClurg Ct. Tickets ($45) include all transportation and admission charges for a nightlong blues adventure, with 11 live blues bands performing all night long. Buses depart from Lizzie's every ten to twenty minutes from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m., and then begin shuttling between clubs until 2:00 a.m. Tickets are available through the Chicago Blues Tour website, www.chicagobluestour.com, or by phone via Ticketweb at 866.468.3401. Advance tickets are strongly recommended, as the tour often sells out. For further information, visit the website or call the toll-free BluesLine at 866-LIVEBLUES (866-548-3258). Maps, schedules, and an FAQ are also updated frequently at the website The Chicago BluesTour(tm), now entering its 20th anniversary year, is part of a slate of "Chicago Blues Weekend" events that celebrates the vitality of the Chicago blues club scene (www.bluesweekend.com) and which also includes Friday and Sunday "Blues Shuttles" to clubs featuring West Side Soul, South Side guitarists, Blues Women, and Chicago's famed "Blues Alley" on the North Side. There's also a visit from a traveling showcase, the Kansas City Blues Caravan, at Rosa's.

Blues University® sponsors classes and events that expand the understanding and audience for blues music, and has helped promote blues with assistance from the Mayor's Office of Special Events since 1998.
Fantastic L-Roy SlideShow

Slideshow of photos I took of the dynamic Fantastic L-Roy singing up on the bar at Linda's Place. He's one of the most popular acts featured on the Chicago Blues Tour Sat. May 16th, and we'll be recording live.

Johnny Drummer SlideShow

Cool site! The pictures, names and venues bring back good memories from when I used to live in the Windy City. Do you guys remember seeing Willie Dixon and Buddy Guy/Junior Wells at Biddy Mulligans on N. Sheridan and Howard?

Hello Chicago Blues Tour,
Here is my wish for the very best to all of my LiveBluesWorld friends as we take the music of our heritage into 2009 and the 21st century.
It's an honor to be on this journey with you. ..and a pleasure to be your friend. Thank you for allowing me to be a member of the community.

..."true greats" ...are not those born with "golden spoons" in their mouths. ...but those who through "hard work" turn their own "wooden spoons" into "gold".

"...the re-emergence of blues music as serious social commentary."
