It looks like both Wrigley Field and Ravinia are planning to have concerts this summer:
There were no concerts at Wrigley Field in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic, and live music has yet to return to the city in a big way. Even now, it’s unclear if the shows will happen this summer.
“We’ll be prepared in the event those concerts are allowed,” Cubs spokesman Julian Green said Tuesday. The Cubs are honoring previously purchased tickets and selling tickets for the following concerts:
- The Chris Stapleton show on July 17, 2021, originally scheduled for Aug. 29, 2020
- The Guns N’ Roses show on July 21, 2021, originally scheduled for July 26, 2020
- The Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer on Aug. 15, 2021, originally scheduled for Aug. 13, 2020
- The Lady Gaga show on Aug. 27, 2021, originally scheduled for Aug. 14, 2020
- The Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe show on Aug. 29, 2021, originally scheduled for Aug. 28, 2020
- The Maroon 5 show on Aug. 30, 2021, originally scheduled for June 13, 2020
Also, Ravinia announced they're planning to have concerts back this summer as well. The venue will reopen in July:
All concerts at will take place outside in the open-air Pavilion and have a reduced audience capacity. Additionally, reserved-in-advance, distanced seating in the lawn and dining facilities will be available.
Social distancing also will apply to the artists and bands on stage.
Yay! Some more normalcy!
