Soul Asylum are set to headline Chicago's longest-running New Year's Eve party, the Rock 'N' Roll Ball.
The band will be performing at the event, in support of their new album, Delayed Reaction.
The annual Chicago event will take place at the InterContinental Chicago O'Hare (5300 N. River Road, Rosemont) on Monday, December 31 and feature live music in three ballrooms from Soul Asylum, Hairbangers Ball, Miles Nielsen, top dance DJs and more.
We were sent these details about the three ballrooms: Rock Room This year's signature New Year's Eve celebration is headlined by Soul Asylum in the Avendon Ballroom. Formed in the summer of 1981 by high school friends Dan Murphy, Karl Mueller, and Dave Pirner, Soul Asylum quickly became frontrunners of American college rock. They hit it big in the 90s with chart-topping songs like Runaway Train, Let Your Dim Light Shine and Misery. Now, hot off a critically-acclaimed new album this summer, Delayed Reaction, and armed with three decades of jams, Soul Asylum has its sights set high for the Rock 'N' Roll Ball and beyond. Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts will open up the show.
Party Room: Swift, brave and utterly hard core, Chicago's own 80s rhythmic riders-of-the-night, Hairbangers Ball, headlines the Cassatt Ballroom. The iconic cover band roams the country offering up primeval hymnals of Poison, Guns 'n Roses, Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe and Bon Jovi - just to name a few. Opener TBA.
Club Room: A top Chicago DJ (TBA) will keep the Montrose Room jumping well into 2013. Named one of Chicago's "Top 5" suburban bars by Time Out Chicago, the Montrose Room features a state-of-the-art acoustic design and sound system. It's an authentic Chicago club experience in the suburbs! Visit Montroseroom.com for ongoing weekly shows.
