The Chicago Vibe


The Fratellis to headline Metro

Alicia Maciel | May 2018

Scottish rock trio The Fratellis are finally returning to Chicago after 3 years! Headlining a sold out show at Metro Friday, May 11 presented by 101 WKQX, the legendary nightclub will create an intimate setting for their long waited return. Their last show in the city at The Vic Theatre was filled with high energy, countless improvisation, and all hockey fans singing along to "Chelsea Dagger". The Fratellis are traveling the U.S. roads promoting their fifth studio album In Your Own Sweet Timevia Cooking Vinyl Limited.


Adding to what may be their most pop release yet, the twelve track album continues to bring the band's signature style - playful, rhythmic, and sophisticated lyricism and instruments. While personal favorites from the new album include surf pop "Sugartown", Beach Boys influenced "Starcrossed Lovers",  and a synth pop development on their well-known style "The Next Time We Wed" - fans never know how the songs will be performed live.

Keep an eye out for European rockers The Fratellis and our coverage of their show!
