The Ides Of March played before a sold-out crowd at the Moraine Valley Performing Arts Center on Saturday October 13th. The show was preceded in the afternoon by Jim Peterik’s Popular Songwriting Seminar, and the show that followed was special. The Ides played the first set “unplugged”, in an intimate setting at the edge of the stage, featuring tunes from the Ides songbook not played live for many years. After a brief intermission, the band returned to their electric instruments for a set of their most rocking songs. After the concert, it seemed like the entire audience lined up in the atrium/lobby to meet and greet the guys and buy a CD (or three) to autograph. A great night in Palos Hills!
