You’ve heard “Call Me, Maybe” all over the radio and watched the many parodies of it on YouTube (I like the Jimmy Fallon version with The Roots the best). Now is your chance to see the song of the summer performed in person – and for free.
Carly Rae Jepsen, the pop star behind “Call Me, Maybe,” will perform a free concert July 19 at Charter One Pavilion. The show is part of the Kellogg's Pop-Tarts “Crazy Good Summer” promotion and will also feature fellow pop acts Boys Like Girls and Austin Mahone.
The first 4,000 fans to go to the Pop-Tarts Facebook page and register will received a code redeemable for two tickets to the concert.
This one’s for the children: Latin crooner Marc Anthony will host a cocktail reception fundraiser for the Maestro Cares Foundation, which is raising money to building an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, at the Sofitel Chicago hotel August 20. Anthony will perform with Chayanne and Marco A. Solis August 19 at the Allstate Arena.
