Default Pearl Jam coming to Wrigley

That appears to be the case:

They sent another tweet that read Looking Good! with a picture of a stage in the middle of Wrigley Field.

I know something I'll be doing this summer! But man I wish it was Alpine and not Wrigley.

I can walk to Wrigley Field now so I'm all ****ing for it, though drunken stumbling will be a bit of a challenge.

Rumor is super Cubbie fan Richard Marx and supper Cubbie fan Eddie Vedder are going to do a heart warming duet of Richard Marx's Take This Heart.

The Springsteen concert last year was amazing, however the amount of damage those concerts do to the field is equally incredible.

Even though a lot of their games will be vs. the NL Central, the number of Cubs victories will not be in many multiples of ten.

(I tried to be the better man and not make a joke there, but I just couldn't help it.)

I don't understand why they don't schedule their concerts for early October when they know they don't have to worry about field conditions anymore

Could you imagine the negative press the White Sox would have gotten if the grass in the outfield was brown after a series of in season concerts?

I'm guessing because it could be pretty cold by then, especially at night. I still remember going to see PJ at Alpine Valley in early October (October 8, 2000 as I look it up now) and it was below freezing. Only set of their entire tour that they didn't play a 2nd encore.

Additionally, as much as we know it will never happen, they would get killed by their fans for outright admitting before the season that they have no chance of making the playoffs.

They've basically already said that, for the next two seasons.

Here's some recent reading about Richard Marx that I'm sure you will all find quite entertaining:
