Unfortunately, spent last Sunday at House of Blues Chicago for the Timbaland show. A truly disappointing "performance" that he and the House of Blues Chicago should be embarrassed about. The Chicago Tribune wrote a great review of this bust of a performance.

While a start time of 11:00 PM on a Sunday isn't great for work the next day, wanted to see a Timbaland show backed by a live band. Sounded great. Waited until 12:30 a full hour and a half past "start time" and nothing. He didn't have an opener and there are plenty of fantastic Chicago acts that could have filled the spot.
Turns out he didn't go on stage until 2:00 AM. Which is unprofessional, inexcusable and incredibly inconsiderate. Even worse, according to the Tribune when he did emerge the show was terrible and the only "special guest" was his damn brother. Timbaland should stay away from the stage - cause obviously he is not an entertainer - and stick to the studio producing beats.
On a positive note - encourage everyone to atttend the Doom and Mos Def show on February 13th.
