The Best Live Events To See This Season

By Chicago Bucket List

Concerts, and Sports, and Musicals - Oh My! 🎶

Published December 03, 2019

Keeping busy during the holiday season can become increasingly tricky. Gone are the days of vitamin D rays gracing our outdoor activities, and we've gotten through every last Hallmark movie on TV, what next?

The holidays are a time of family, friends, and that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you nail your dad's present. Whether it's impressing your date with tickets to Hamilton or taking your brother to a football game, experiencing events brings us all closer together (or tear us apart depending on which team we're rooting for).

In light of the holiday season, we've gone ahead and rounded up some of the best events on Ticketmaster to spend with your close ones throughout these chilly months. All of these events, and more, can be found on Ticketmaster - our #1 source for live events.

Mean Girls 

Get in loser, we're going to Mean Girls. The movie that stole our hearts has finally hit the stage - still equally as hilarious and yet slightly offensive. The fetch soundtrack will have you humming show tunes all season long.
