'Blues Brothers Con' returning this year to Old Joliet Prison
JOLIET, Ill. - Get your sunglasses and suits ready, because "Blues Brothers Con" is planning a return to the Old Joliet Prison this year.
The head of the museum that manages the prison says Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi — standing in for his late brother John — will be back with a repeat performance by The Blues Brothers band.
The prison site was the setting for the opening scene in the classic 1980s film.
