If you're a Ne-Yo fan (and who doesn't love the R&B juggernaut these days, with hits like "Miss Independent" and "Closer"), you were probably excited when you found out about his February 27 show at the Chicago Theatre. Then you found out that it could cost you as much as $100 to see the dude. This may be the "Year of the Gentleman," but it's also the "Year of the Recession."
But your stinginess has paid off, because now you can see him for next to nothing, though he probably won't be doing any singing. The crooner will be stopping by Lumen after the show (no doubt to get his picture taken by photographer Marc Moran at the Yearbook Social), so reserve your table now. Complimentary cover before 10 p.m. w/RSVP.
