Singer-songwriter Andrew Bird announced his first in person headline concert of 2021 set to take place as part of the Ravinia Festival concert series on Friday, September 24 in Highland Park, Illinois near Chicago. The show will also feature a reunion of Bird’s formative band, Bowl Of Fire, as well as a team up with Jimbo Mathus in support of their 2021 collaborative album, These 13.

Addtional support will be provided by Chicago band The Flat Five. Ravinia is a fitting place for Bird to make his return to the stage as he hails from the area and was a ticket taker for the concert series as a high school student. Bird reminisces about his work at Ravinia as well as seeing jazz violinist Stéphane Grappelli in a performance video of a song she inspired, “Dora Goes To Town.”

Tickets for Andrew Bird’s Ravinia performance go on sale July 21. Head here to purchase.
