We return to Martyrs' with George Harrison! 


There are perhaps a few of you, just a few, who saw us at Martyrs in 2002. 

60 people came to see us that August when we did our first show ever, as The Who.  A few more came for Sly & The Family Stone in September, a few more still for CSNY in October. 

Then in November we did the rare, never to be repeated, double artist show.  John Lennon AND George Harrison.  This, frankly, was a terrible idea.  Too much legendary music from each Beatle to cram into one show!  John Lennon got his appropriate solo treatment in 2007.  Now, finally, 19 years after the indecency of getting half a concert, it’s time to do right by George. 

Please join us on Wednesday October 6th at Martyrs, when Tributosaurus becomes George Harrison. 

His developing songwriting was frankly hindered by the presence of Lennon and McCartney in the very same band.  Huh, no wonder that band was so successful.  George got one or two tracks per album, all the way through the breakup, and then exploded into his solo career with the epic brilliance of All Things Must Pass.  It is 51 years since that masterwork was released, and we will lean heavily upon its 28 tracks in composing our set list. 

But we won’t limit the night to just that record.  There were solo albums all through the 70’s with radio hits that endure, and in 1987 he and Jeff Lynne co-produced Cloud Nine, which beget a few more hits. 

“Give me love, give me love, give me…peace on Earth.”  We’re trying George…the best of us are still trying.  In the meantime, there’s music. 

Come feel the music with us.

Tributosaurus Becomes George Harrison
Wednesday, October 6th at 7PM

Eagles in September at Theater on the Lake! 

Live music is back, baby, and we in Tributosaurus have loved seeing you this summer! As the fall approaches, let’s keep the connection going and venture back indoors. An absolutely massive, iconic hit-making band will bring us all together in mid-September. 

Join us on Saturday September 18th as Tributosaurus becomes The Eagles at Theater On The Lake. 

You know these songs. Everyone does. Their greatest hits album still stands as one of the best selling records of all time with over 42 million sold. You know the one - blue cover, bird skull, tribal font? Look through your records - it's in there. Their catalog is filled with well crafted, delicately recorded countrified rock and roll, and the radio stations of your youth made sure the songs left an indelible mark. 

The Eagles were put together as Linda Ronstadt's backup band, but soon decided they would go out on their own, later adding Joe Walsh to add more rock to their sound. We will travel through the catalog, from early singer-songwriter influenced jams like Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, and Desperado, through late rockers like Hotel California, Life's Been Good, and The Long Run, with some deep cut stops along the way too. 

The electric guitarmada will be in full effect, with extra singers to nail the pristine harmonies, and a string section; as always we bring in whatever musicians are necessary to make the music sound as close to the record as humanly possible. 

You clearly love Theater On The Lake, as 700 tickets for our Talking Heads show in July sold out in just one day! So, we added some more tickets and opened up a little more space at the venue. It’s a big bite at the apple, so please make sure to tell a friend or three. 

Take It To the Limit, one more time, on September 18th.

Tributosaurus Becomes The Eagles
at Theater on the Lake - 2401 N Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60614
Saturday, September 18th - 8PM (Doors at 6PM)
