Advance Party information, including the performer that will appear, will be announced via the Blues U. Email announcement list, which you can join by clicking the "join list" button.

The advance party, allowing check-in for will-call ticketholders, members, and guests/press, will be held at Blue Chicago, 736 N. Clark St., from 7 to 8 p.m. for the Spring 2001 Blues Club Tour.

If you have advance tickts and want to take advantage of the 8:00 boarding that will get you out on the tour and in front of some live music sooner, allowing you to visit more clubs than the later boarding, you must have advance tickets and you must check in between 7 and 8 p.m. at the advance party. We will also have some freebies, along with a live acoustic performer.

New members can pick up their Blues U. t-shirts at the advance party as well.
