It’s Official: Pearl Jam Playing at Wrigley Field on July 19

Get yourself ready to rock.

Today the Chicago Cubs announced that Pearl Jam would indeed be playing at Wrigley Field this Summer:

pearl jam wrigley field

Nice way to do it.

As the sign indicates, the concert will be July 19, and tickets will go on sale February 9 at 10am CT. Time to start working with my calendar.

Pretty fair bet that Eddie Vedder plays this one (and I cry):

Brett Taylor is the editor and lead writer at Bleacher Nation, and can also be found as Bleacher Nation on Twitter and on Facebook.

    Heard the announcement on WGN this a.m. while taking the kids to school…Johnny B played ‘All the Way’. I shamefully cried in my car in my pj’s & robe in the freezing cold. You won’t be alone when sobbing in July….

    What’s the over/under on the cheap seats?

    $100?

    Typically, I have a $50 limit for concerts etc. I told the old lady last night that for this, I would stretch to $75.

    Maybe $80… plus fees and taxes (Rationalizing.)

    Great to wake up to the confirmation. Got my hotel booked on the cheap – now to work on the flying vs driving comparison for the wife and I. It’s a good day.

    I AM SO EXCITED.

    For what it’s worth, the official PJ announcement states:

    “We are excited to announce two special Pearl Jam live performances to take place in London, Ontario and at Chicago’s Wrigley Field in July 2013. Both evenings will be An Evening with Pearl Jam; there will not be an opening band for either performance date”

    So expect a 3 hour plus show and the prices held down as much as possible. Does anyone know if there is a curfew for shows at Wrigley?

      Joker, where did you find a cheap hotel, if you don’t mind me asking? Huge PJ fan and Cubs fan so this is the best of both worlds. Can’t wait.

        Algonquin.

        Hilton Garden Inn at Mag Mile. Right near Red Line stop.

    Really surprised at the date. The Jason Aldean concert is the next night and we saw what back-to-back concerts did to the outfield last summer. Plus, it doesn’t allow for them to add a second show, which I had assumed (hoped) they would do.

    I paid 99 for McCartney behind home plate , there was tickets for 50 or 60 When there is a large screen anywhere is a decent seat
