Beyoncé at Soldier Field and the Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park may be Chicago’s big music events this weekend, but a suburb takes inspiration from the past as two popular bands from the late 1990s and early 2000s are set to hold a concert Friday and Saturday.
Vertical Horizon and Plain White T’s will perform Friday and Saturday at the Brookfield Zoo as part of the zoo’s “Concerts for Conservation” series, a statement from the zoo said. Vertical Horizon, known for his 1999 hit “Everything You Want,” will perform on Friday, and Plain White T’s known for his popular 2006 hit “Hey There Delilah,” will perform on Saturday.

According to officials, each show will end with a 30-minute light show.
