Never Say Die! -  A celebration of BLACK SABBATH and ABBA
Featuring Jim Becker, Angie Mead, Jeanine O'Toole, Reid Coker, Stephen Howard, Kent Lambert, and Josh Johannpeter.

Do ABBA and Black Sabbath share the same DNA? Some of Chicago’s most adventuresome musicians say yes.



Exploring the catalogs of BLACK SABBATH and ABBA is not just a way to celebrate two of the most influential bands in rock history, it’s an opportunity for catharsis and healing. Universal themes of light and darkness make both bands exceptional bookends for an evening that will summon the joyful exuberance of ABBA followed by the primal power of BLACK SABBATH.
