CHICAGO -- (July 12, 2011) -- Macy's Passport Presents Glamorama 2011 four-city tour hits Chicago at The Chicago Theatre on Friday, August 12th at 8PM, bringing high fashion and fierce performances together for one ARTrageous night. Multitalented singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Cee Lo Green, known for his most recent chart-topping hit "Forget You" as well as for co-writing and singing Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," will headline the 13th annual event. Also set to perform is electro-pop quartet Far East Movement who shot to fame with chart-topping singles, "Like a G6" and "Rocketeer."
This over-the-top event will once again benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHC®-CNI.) "We are proud to partner once again with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana as proceeds will directly fund the new Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children's which will be the world's largest Ronald McDonald House," says Martine Reardon, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Advertising for Macy's.

Mike Gansmoe, Macy's VP of Special Productions, says "Fashion is truly a kinetic form of art. It's always moving, always inspiring and ever-changing. As a background to the designer looks on the runway, the audience will enjoy a powerful visual show inspired by the arts. From Degas to Banksy, ballet to breakdance and everywhere in between, Macy's Glamorama should prove to be an incredible journey."
