Fantabuloso is like bringing the MTV Video Music Awards to the stage. Let's see, you've got Enrique Iglesias, the Wanted, B.o.B, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Adam Lambert and more.
But, this is better than the awards show: Non-stop music, no commercial breaks or awkward and/or prolonged thank-you speeches.
Why go: Mega-concert bill season, so you may as well get started.
Reconsider: If you have to sit all evening for a pop extravaganza, you'd rather be doing it at an outdoor venue.
Details: 5:30 p.m. Friday at Allstate Arena, 6920 N. Mannheim Road, Rosemont; $25-$95; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
