In 1969, a band of four English musicians arrived in New York and literally took America by storm. Over the next 50 years, this legendary band accumulated over 65 million record sales and a following of loyal fans that are the envy of rock bands worldwide! This band was Jethro Tull.

Classic Tull hits played throughout the interactive performance include songs from legendary albums such as Thick As A Brick, Aqualung, Stand Up, Songs From The Wood, A Passion Play, Heavy Horses and many more…
He will be bringing a spectacular show with his touring band, featuring the iconic voice of Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on bass and Darby Todd on drums.

Dogs Of Society (The Ultimate Elton John Tribute)

ADDITIONAL SEATING MAY BE AVAILIABLE BY CALLING
THE WILDEY TICKET OFFICE AT 618-307-1750.

Let The Dogs take you on a ride through one of the most epic rock catalogs of the 1970s with Elton John’s smash hits like Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer and Crocodile Rock to deeper cuts like Funeral for a Friend, Madman Across the Water, All the Girls Love Alice, Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters and many, many more. No tracks. No tricks. Just a killer rock band delivering a dynamic, ALL-LIVE performance every night (with that extra sauce that comes from an authentic, live show). Just like Elton and his band.


Although he’s often been told he looks and sounds like ‘70s-era Elton John, John Gore formed Dogs of Society with the idea that Elton’s songs (not costumes) should be the star of the show. Featuring an incredible lineup of accomplished musicians including John Gore (aka Elton Juan), Steve Johnston (guitar), Louis Michael (keyboard, accordion, guitar), Curt Shaw (bass guitar) and Dave Johnson (drums), Dogs of Society will blow you away with their authentic rock ‘n roll tribute to the one of the most celebrated musicians in rock history.

His career includes time with Vanilla Fudge (still touring!), Rod Stewart with whom he co-authored the mega hits “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “Young Turks”, Ozzy Osbourne, Cactus and Jeff Beck to name a few.

Carmine Appice Diaries also features must hear stories on Vanilla Fudge tour mates Jimi Hendrix, Cream, "opening act" Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, John Lennon and Paul Stanley of KISS. In 1967 Carmine began his professional career setting the grooves for Vanilla Fudge’s groundbreaking psychedelic debut, inadvertently inventing “Stoner Rock” in the process.

Jesus Jones

Jesus Jones are back – but to be strictly accurate, they never actually went away. Jesus Jones first came together back in 1988, and their distinctive brand of sample-heavy pop found an instant, and receptive audience. Throughout the early ’90s the band enjoyed phenomenal success, particularly in America, where their single “Right Here Right Now” rose to number one, and their second album Doubtsold over a million copies. They played the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, supported INXS at Wembley Stadium, and performed to a quarter of a million people in Brazil.
