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.
