Roger Waters to Transform Wrigley Field into The Wall
For 81 games a season baseball fans pack into Chicago’s Wrigley Field to watch their Cubbies go to work, but over the last several years we’ve seen the historic ballpark serve as a something more than a place to catch a baseball game. Seven summers ago, Wrigley began serving as a concert venue to some of music’s biggest names; something that has become sort of a tradition for music lovers here in Chicago.
In 2005, Jimmy Buffett became the first artist to ever play a show inside the Friendly Confines and its success opened the door for numerous other acts. Fans have since been able to see The Police in 2007, legends Elton John and Billy Joel share a stage in 2009, Rascal Flatts also in 2009, Dave Matthews Band in 2010, and a magical two night performance from Paul McCartney this past summer. Each show quickly sold out and ended up being wildly successful.
Roger Waters to Perform at Historic Wrigley Field June 8, 2012
Anticipation is already starting to build for next year with the announcement that the legendary Roger Waters will be at Wrigley Field in June. He will be performing The Pink Floyd classic The Wall, one of the best selling albums ever made, in its entirety as part of The Wall Live Tour. Those who saw the tour when it last made a stop in Chicago last year have called it one of the best concert experiences of their life. Who knows how much longer Waters will be touring after making statements last time around to the AP that it was his final tour. If that’s the case, Roger Waters and Pink Floyd fans should not miss this opportunity to see the legend live one last time.
Tickets are expected to sell out almost immediately upon their regular on-sale date of Friday, November 11. Even when they do, Gold Coast Tickets will be able to accommodate any fan’s seating preference for what is surely to be another historic event at Wrigley Field!
