See the Straits
Dire Straits emerged from England in the late 1970s and became hugely successful in the '80s with the album "Brothers in Arms." The band specialized in jazzy, guitar-driven rock, and its hits include "Sultans of Swing," "Money for Nothing" and "So Far Away." The band has broken up, but some of its original members have regrouped as the Straits. This band (which does not include former Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler) will revisit Dire Straits' many hits during a show in the suburbs this weekend.
8 p.m. Friday, March 7, at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $39. Go to oshows.com.

Rock's young Kings
Popular rock band Kings of Leon has conquered the masses -- no small feat in today's music landscape -- with a Southern-flavored brand of arena rock. The Tennessee-based rockers, who released their last album, "Mechanical Bull," in the fall of 2013, will perform in the city this weekend.
8 p.m. Saturday, March 8, at the United Center, 1901 W. Madison St., Chicago. Tickets start at $29.50. Go to ticketmaster.com.
