I never miss an opportunity to spend time in the neighborhood my wife calls "home away from home."

Soon, our beloved Chicago Cubs will begin another season at Wrigley Field filling our spring and summer with many Flyin' Ws. Some of those summer nights will be filled with live music.

Music brings people together even more than sports do, so of course, Wrigley Field became one of the best outdoor concert venues in Chicago. This summer, catch a game one day and return some other night to see the field transformed into a playground for music legends.

Once in July and twice in July, the Wrigley Field lights will shine on the big concert stage.
