Wrigley Field Concert History
For the first 91 years of its existence, the musical offerings at Wrigley Field were limited to The National Anthem, Take Me Out to The Ballgame, Steve Goodman’s Go Cubs Go and the random whimsical stylings of the family friendly organist but that all changed Labor Day weekend of 2005 when the friendly confines of Wrigley Field became an island escape as Jimmy Buffet made history becoming the first musician to hold a concert performance in the National League’s oldest standing ballpark.
Despite initial neighborhood concerns and under the watchful eye of the City of Chicago, the Jimmy Buffet shows executed without incident, paving the way for future concerts in this idyllic urban setting. It was only a matter of time before top tier talents were vying for the opportunity to play this unique urban venue and the city, neighbors and Cubs organization joined forces to make concerts at Wrigley Field one of the most anticipated events of the summer. In 2007 The Police performed two sold out shows, with the original line-up of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland for the first time in more than two decades, and had not played Chicago since selling out the old Comiskey Park in 1983.
New Year’s Day 2009 brought a non-baseball sporting event to Wrigley as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 6-4 in the first ever NHL Winter Classic hockey game at Wrigley Field. The summer of 2009, Wrigley hosted the Elton John & Billy Joel tour followed by country favorites Rascal Flatts. The 2010 season brought two sold out Dave Matthews Band concerts that were recorded live and went on to become the bestselling Dave Matthews Band: Live at Wrigley Field. Just when it seemed impossible to raise the Wrigley concert experience bar, 2011 brought the one and only Sir Paul McCartney who played two sold out, 3 hour, 37 song sets in 90 plus degree heat without missing a beat.
The 2012 season brought a little country with Brad Paisley, a lot of rock and roll with Bruce Springsteen’s sold out Wrecking Ball Tour and the mesmerizing Roger Waters The Wall tour, all spectacular sold out shows. So far, Live Nation has announced Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson and Jake Owen on July 20, 2013 and we are anxiously awaiting the rest of the summer 2013 line up!
