Five Best Things to Do in August

POCKET GUIDE: A cultural short-list for August, in order of buzz

(page 1 of 5)

SADE

SadeThis is no ordinary concert: The intensely private and fervently adored singer takes the stage following a ten-year absence from touring—leaving fans to ask of her opening act, “John Legend who?”

DETAILS:

8/5–7 Sade and her band became international superstars in the mid-1980s with songs that set her beautifully aching vocals to funky smooth-jazz backing. These shows and the 2010 album Soldier of Love mark the singer’s return to recording and performing following a ten-year absence. Legend, another generation’s heartthrob, opens. At 7:30. $99.50–$149.50. United Center, 1901 W Madison. ticketmaster.com.
