It's been closed for a while but I heard someone is thinking about fixing up and reopening.

In 2006, the exterior was extensively secured and terra cotta pieces were cataloged and stored for future restoration efforts. A May 21, 2007 article in Crain's Chicago Business described the Uptown Theatre as "suddenly a hot property," as three national entertainment companies were in competition to purchase, restore and reopen the Uptown Theatre.[4]

It was purchased through a judicial sale July 29, 2008 by JAM Productions for $3.2 million[5] and finalized in court on August 18, 2008.[6] It is estimated it will take about $40 million to get it ready for use again. JAM currently also owns the Riviera Theatre also on Broadway, approximately one block away.

Hand of Fate
Torn and Frayed
Worried About You
Everybody Needs Somebody to Love
Walk and Don't Look Back

It's Only Rock and Roll (with Bono)
I Just Want to Make Love to You (with Dr. John)
Honky Tonk Woman
Rip This Joint
Can't You Hear Me Knocking
Jumping Jack Flash
Brown Sugar
Tumbling Dice (encore)
Takin' it in stride!

thats the problem Phil has very few freinds in the midwest. I know all the good places to eat though. He could visit Babe the blue ox and the corn palace. Have his face carved in butter and we could all enjoy a sweet cobb. I know where to fish the big river, no cash needed.

-wait Phil and Friend Midwest Tour? Is he bring Jackie? I will dress myself in greene.....
