Still looking for a late summer concert?
You’re in luck because tickets are still available for the Neon Trees and The All-American Rejects concert at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sport Complex on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Gates open at 6 p.m. The concert begins at p.m. Tickets purchased online at www.ben.edu/benfest are $30 for general admission ($15 for Benedictine students). Tickets at the gate are $40 for general admission ($20 for BenU students).
The Neon Trees’ most recent chart topper is Everybody Talks, off the album, Picture Show. The single, Animal, from the Neon Trees’ 2010 debut Habits went double-platinum and was named Top Alternative Song of 2011 by Billboard. Two other singles from Habits, 1983 and My Surrender, were nearly as huge.
Neon Trees has performed more than 200 shows in the United States, Europe, Canada and the United Kingdom. The band has toured and performed with the Killers, My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds to Mars and most recently, Duran Duran.
The All-American Rejects, best known for their 2009 international hit, “Gives You Hell,” and popular accompanying music video, are no strangers to success. The song spent four weeks at the No. 1 spot on Top 40 radio and became the No. 1 most-played song of the year, going on to sell 4 million copies in the United States alone.
The concert is sponsored by Navistar.
