When Jay-Z and Eminem announced last week on ESPN that they’ll be doing a double concert at Yankee Stadium and Comerica Park this fall, I started to dream a bit.
And unfortunately since the Cubs are (so far) really sucking it up this year, I decided to escape the pain of watching the Cubs and wonder what it would be like to see some of my favorite Chicago artists rock Wrigely Field, if the Cubs aren’t going to.
So just off the top of my head, I’ve listed a few Chicago bands that I’d like to see play the best baseball park in the world… Wrigley Field:
- A Chicago blues showcase featuring Buddy Guy and other local blues legends
- Kanye West
- Lupe Fiasco
- Umphrey’s McGee
- Miraculously bring Steve Goodman back from the dead to play a concert that he rightfully deserves since he’s the genius who wrote “Go Cubs Go”.
Like I said, I’m biased to the Windy City, so I’d like to know what favorite hometown bands and baseball teams would you like to see join forces to rock your favorite ball parks?
