Neill deGrasse Tyson Tour at the Chicago Theatre

Come to Chicago to blow your mind at the Neill deGrasse Tyson Tour at the Chicago Theatre May 10, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel!

The Neill deGrasse Tyson Tour is loosely based on Tyson’s weekly podcast, where he talks free-for-all style with guests, about topics most people can only dream about. Special guest stars (unannounced, but astronauts appear a lot) enliven the presentation, but it is Tyson’s ability to paint the universe with words of wonder that makes the experience unforgettable.

In case you live on another planet, Neill deGrasse Tyson is an African American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author of twelve fascinating books about science and host of the PBS series “Cosmos.” He has the knack of making incredibly tough subjects interesting. The late great physicist Carl Sagan recognized Tyson’s talents when Tyson was a kid, and took the boy under his wing.

“We define ourselves as intelligent. That’s odd, because we’re doing the definition – We’re creating our own definition and saying, ‘We are intelligent!’” Neill Degrasse Tyson

The Chicago Theatre is located at 175 North State Street in the heart of the Loop. For tickets, go online to
