By Randy J. Klodz

Bob Mould’s music is sure to have inspired legions of bands and performers worldwide with his versatile style that can be enjoyed by fans of rock, pop or dance music. Bob Mould brings his national tour to Chicago’s Metro for shows Sept. 29 and Sept. 30.

Bob Mould—best known as the frontman of popular punk band Husker Du, as well as other music projects including Sugar and his fair share of solo material—is currently on tour in support of his new album “Body of Song,” which hit stores in July.

Bob Mould is scheduled to perform selections from each of his previous music projects, a rare feat, as well as tracks from his new album “Body of Song,” with a full band, which is sure to thrill most of Mould’s fan base.

Fans new to Bob Mould may be familiar with his song “Circles,” from “Body of Song,“ which will be featured in an upcoming episode of the FOX network’s “The OC.” Other fan-favorite “Body of Song” tracks include the rocking “Paralyze” and “(Shine Your) Light Love Hope,” a track that mixes Collective Soul rock with modern Madonna dance beats for a sound that has to be heard.

Metro is at 3730 N. Clark St. in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood. Tickets for each of these all-ages shows are listed for $26 each with show time scheduled for 8 p.m. each. Rock band Uncut is scheduled to open each date. For more info on Bob Mould log on to www.bobmould.com.
