What is Tributosaurus X?
This August, we start our tenth year. There has been a lot of unbelievable music in that time, and certain shows stand out as truly unique and special - the shows that only Tributosaurus can pull off. We love these concerts, and we know a lot of you have missed some of them, so it's time to celebrate our first decade.
Starting in August 2011, we are going to reprise 12 of our best and biggest from the past. Not only that, but we are pre-announcing the entire year, and making the tickets to our popular 7pm show available for the whole thing as a subscription package! This will include all 10 Martyrs‘ shows, and 2 special events at the Vic Theater.
The Subscriptions are now done being sold, and there will still be some tickets for the 7pm shows that will go on sale in the month before the concerts occur, as well as the 10pm, or in some cases the 2nd night, shows for all the dates - get yours fast - because these shows will not last!
THE SHOWS :
Aug 3 - Springsteen
Sep 7 - Elton John
Oct 8 (Sat) - *Queen
Nov 2 - Pink Floyd
Dec 7 - Journey
Dec 30 (New Year's Eve Eve) - Prince
Feb 1 - Stevie Wonder

* = Vic Theater Show
Pretty awesome, right?
We know there are some shows that clearly would qualify to be on this list that did not make it, and we still want to try and get them in as well - Ten Year Anniversaries are rare in the music biz, after all - so keep your eyes on the site, and we'll be announcing additional shows as they become available. They won't be a part of the package, but worthy additions to it.
For instance, here's a few:
CSNY at The Beverly Arts Center - August 19th
The Who at the Skokie Backlot Bash, Friday August 26th 2011. Free.
Tom Petty at the Schaumburg Prairie Arts Center - October 21
The Rolling Stones w/Bobby Keys - Beverly Arts Center - 11/11/11
Tom Petty at Fitzgerald's - the night before Thanksgiving 2011
Johnny Cash at the Beverly Arts Center - 1/28/12
Santana - Fitzgerald's - 5/5/12
TRIBUTOSAURUS X FAQ :
Are these reprises of the original sets, or new material?
These are, for the most part, reprises of the original shows we did. There are a couple that there were more than one volume of, and we will combine those sets and pick from that pool, and there are a couple early shows that we may add a couple tunes to in order to make them longer, but mostly it'll be the same sets.
What about the Beatles project? Is that still happening?
YES! The Beatles project will be stretched a little during the next year, but we are continuing on. The December show will be pushed into the early part of 2012, and the June 2012 show will be in August of 2012 instead.
I looked at your list and noticed that is not there - what's up with that?
As mentioned above, we know there are bands that we have done that fit the criteria of this celebration, but since there are only 12 months, we had to settle on 12 bands. However, we are trying to find a home and date that works for several of the others conspicuously missing from the list, and when we find those dates, we will add extra shows during the year to do those bands too.
