The Cubs have rescheduled a slate of Wrigley Field concerts for this summer, including Lady Gaga, Guns N’ Roses and Chris Stapleton shows that were supposed to be held last year.
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. 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 M\u00f6tley 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
The Cubs have not announced new concert dates for the Zac Brown Band, which was scheduled to play Sept. 12, 2020, or Dead & Company, which was scheduled for July 24 and July 25, 2020.
The number of concerts held at Wrigley Field varies from year to year, with the schedule depending on night home games and major artists on tour. It’s unclear how many concertgoers will be allowed at Wrigley Field this summer or if they will be required to take any special precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. A Cubs representative did not immediately return a Tribune request for comment.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced last week more than 8,000 fans, 20% of capacity, will be allowed into the stands at the Cubs and White Sox parks this year.
