Dierks to Take Biker Fundraiser to Chicago

Jerrod Niemann, Eli Young Band to join Dierks at Windy City “Miles & Music.”

Dierks Bentley is adding Chicago to his list of cities for his motorcycle ride/concert fundraiser series, Miles & Music for Kids.

The first-ever Windy City event happens Oct. 9, with a 90-minute ride through the city that ends outside Joe's Bar, 940 West Weed Street. Once the bikers arrive there, they'll be treated to a jam-session concert from Dierks, Eli Young Band, Jerrod Niemann and artists to be named later.

Tix go on sale Friday (Aug. 26) at Dierks' website, and it's only $40 for the whole shebang, $20 if you just wanna go to the concert.

The series has benefited hospitals in the Children's Miracle Network, and this will be no exception: Proceeds will go to Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital.

Dierks has been doing the Miles & Music for Kids events for six years, and he has raised $1.6 million so far for the kids' hospitals.
