After last year's sold out show at Portage Theatre, Tipper returns to Chicago in the more intimate confines and beautiful setting that is Thalia Hall. Modeled after the Prague Opera House and built in 1892, the Hall was a beacon of the neighborhood community and existed as one of the most ornate theaters of its times. It was granted landmark status in 1985, but was closed to the public in the 1960s and remained virtually untouched until the end of 2013 when the new owners began work on it. It has been restored to its original charm and character, but also treated acoustically to bring a wide array of music, community, and artistic events to the neighborhood it serves.
In celebration of such an inspiring undertaking, Tipper and Friends are going to spend 3 nights at Thalia Hall presenting three different experiences across each night. Friday night will feature a Tipper Downtempo or Journey Set, with support from Ion Driver and visual manipulations by the esteemed Johnathan Singer. Saturday night Tipper will present an Uptempo Set and turn off the visuals, inviting everyone to put on their dancing shoes and spend the night smiling at each other instead of the stage. Sunday night Tipper changes gears again, and for only the 3rd time ever (and first time in the Midwest) present his sit down Ambient Set, encouraging everyone in GA to bring pillows or cushions to get comfy and absorb the visuals by Johnathan Singer matching Tipper’s ambient flow.
Invited as the sole artist in residence for this occasion, XAVI will be Live Painting all three nights and also produce an exclusive show poster which he will reveal closer to the event. There are everything from seated balcony to opera box seats, friendly staff, and great sound on offer for Tipper's only Chicago area show for 2015. All 3 shows are 17+. See you there.
Doors at 8:00 PM Friday and Saturday, 7:00 PM on Sunday. Ages 17+.
