It has been FAR too long since Swiss Sweden electro-pop diva Robyn has played in Chicago, but thankfully that drought ends this summer. Recently Robyn and Röyksopp teamed up to record the Do It Again EP and the music we've heard from the collaboration are as fantastic as you'd expect. Judging by the tour trailer, we're in for a hell of a show under the stars in Millennium Park when they come through town on August 24.

The Jay Pritizker Pavilion's stellar sound system should make sure every note hits every audience member, and given both Robyn and Röyksopp's over-the-top energy should make the live show a visual spectacle. The official word is that reserved pavilion tickets will be available for $59.50 and there are also $25.00 general admission lawn tickets available for "listening only." But, like we said, we predict you're going to see a great show no matter where you are in the park that night. Tickets go on sale tomorrow—Friday, May 9—at 10 a.m.

Robyn And Röyksopp play August 24 at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, 7 p.m., $59.50 reserved pavilion / $25 lawn, all ages
