Concert Preview and Ticket Giveaway: David Gray Live at House of Blues (Part of the Jim Beam Live Music Series - Saturday, 6/30/12)

Concert Preview and Ticket Giveaway: David Gray Live at House of Blues (Part of the Jim Beam Live Music Series - Saturday, 6/30/12)

British singer-songwriter David Gray returns to the intimate confines of House of Blues as part of the Jim Beam Live Music Series in support of a great cause this Saturday night...

David Gray has always been a sizable draw in Chicago so it's a rare opportunity to see him this weekend in a smaller venue like House of Blues.

Now nearly twenty years into his career, Gray actually hit his peak commercially behind the success of the single "Babylon" following the release of White Ladder in 1999.  Gray showcased songs from his eighth studio album Foundling last summer on the city's south side as part of the Dave Matthews Caravan touring festival.

In town Saturday as part of the Jim Beam Live Music Series, Gray joins the likes of Kid Rock, Daughtry, Darius Rucker, Bush and Train as artists teaming with the bourbon maker to bring live music to fans across the country in support of a great cause.  Jim Beam will donate more than $100,000 to soldiers with a passion for music.

The Jim Beam Live Music Series has made available a pair of tickets to be given away for this Saturday's show at House of Blues.  The winner must reside within the Chicagoland area, can't be a Tribune Company employee (and yes, my fellow ChicagoNow writers, this includes you), must be over 21 years of age and must be able to answer the following trivia question:

What famous musician made David Gray's 1999 album White Ladder the first release on his label ATO Records?

The first correct answer posted in the comments section below wins two tickets to see David Gray this Saturday at House of Blues.  If the answer isn't in the comments section below, it doesn't count.  Trivia answers will be evaluated by Jim Ryan and the decision of the judge is final.  Tickets courtesy of Jim Beam Live Music Series.
