It only makes sense that Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials is playing Saturday at The Venue in downtown Aurora as part of a series of concerts these weekend celebrating outdoor concerts returning to Mundy Park, which is adjacent to The Venue.


Lil' Ed Williams and his bandmates were one of the last bands to play in front of a live audience at The Venue last year before the pandemic forced the music venue to switch to live streaming concerts. For those ready to hear live music again, Williams and his band will provide plenty of electricity.

The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets range in price from $20 to $25, available at The Venue's website,

The grand reopening weekend will wrap up on Sunday with a musical tribute to two of The Beatles most beloved albums, "Rubber Soul" and "Abbey Road." More information is available on The Venue's website,
