Concertbank.com began a list of must-see venues a little over a year ago, and have since highlighted both well-known and yet-to-be-discovered venues to fan who are eager to have the best experience possible when seeing a live band. The website has just announced a new addition to the list, and it has some people scratching their heads.
“We decided to put the Aragon Ballroom on our list for a couple of reasons,” said a spokesman from ConcertBank, a third party ticket seller. “First of all, it’s historical, and secondly, most people who get to experience the Aragon can’t stop talking about the architecture, especially the ceiling.”
What he’s talking about is the Spanish village style interior that takes away the breath of many visitors. And then they look up. The expanse of the ceiling is painted like the sky, with clouds moving across the sky. One fan on Facebook summed it up perfectly when she said, “The ceiling is painted like a night sky, and the whole venue looks like it came straight out of Aladdin.”
The Aragon Ballroom is located in Chicago, Illinois and has quite a history. It was built in 1926, and since then, it has served many purposes. It was home to WGN, which broadcast a radio program from the hall to listeners across the United States and Canada. In addition, it’s rumored that secret tunnels run from the basement of the hall to the Green Mill Bar, which was the famous hangout of Al Capone in the prohibition times.
Visitors appreciate the fact that the Aragon is located just off the red-line, which makes it easy to get to and from the ballroom. “The Aragon is home a mixed variety of concerts,” says the spokesman. “For example, currently, we have tickets to shows by Alabama Shakes, Walk the Moon, and Shake the Sky. You can also find Needtobreathe and Parachute tickets for the venue.. The ballroom will make each of these shows that much more special.”
But as is true for many unique, one of a kind venues, tickets won’t last for any of the shows. “One of the things that makes the Aragon Ballroom special is the intimacy fans feel in the space, but the reason for that intimacy is the limited number of seats. So if fans want to experience this fantastic venue, they should plan ahead and purchase their tickets early.”
