Reserved tickets ($75 & $50 with a 6-ticket limit) and General Admission field tickets ($75 with a 4-ticket limit) can be purchased online at www.Cubs.com/foo or by phone at 800-THE-CUBS.

Are you people doing GA? My daughter and her friends will want to but part of me wants to have a seat. Actually, most of me wants a seat.

I saw Pearl Jam at Wrigley last year and I thought it was great. They had the band set up at the one end of the field and then a pit area with seating behind that going back to maybe mid field...

No thunderstorms for the Foos hopefully

Thanks! Just got back from Milwaukee/Pearl Jam and after the flat tire on the way home, money is tight but I think I can squeeze this!

We will do seats since our kids will be almost 7 and 9 by then. I'll wait a few years for their first GA experience

Okay, so what are the chances of getting a decent seat with one of the Chicago radio station pre-sale codes? I was just on stubhub looking around and I am assuming current season ticket holders for Wrigley are already selling their seats for absolute insane prices. I just want to make sure I make it to this. I've never seen them and this is basically a dream come true!

I didn't find the prices on Stubhub too bad. Guess that'll depend on if I snag tickets.

When I saw them in Milwaukee in 2012, there were a lot of empty seats, which surprised me. I know we all love the Foo, but are they as a big a draw as we think they are?

I wouldn't think season ticket holders get tickets to concerts. Although maybe as a benefit they can buy them first. Hard to tell.

seems like the cubs presale is happening here if you're a season ticket holder:

Ughhh. I think that is ridiculous. I mean I understand being a season ticket holder to a venue like that is expensive, but who really goes in buying season tickets for the chance to attend a concert? Obviously they don't hold that many there. It is just ridiculous that the holders are able to resell their tickets at such a high cost. If people really did purchase them for their asking price, they are probably covering the cost of their season tickets with one sale. Sucks for the real fans who should have a chance to purchase good seats for the asking price!

Season ticket holders have taken an ass kicking to the tune of thousands of dollars on their investment for the last 5 years in a row, due to the Cubs sucking the cat's ass at baseball. You could not even give tickets away by the time August came around. I am not surprised that they take their shots to make up the difference for Wrigley concerts, as there are two or three each year now.

Now mind I am not saying I agree with it at all, but I am not surprised by it.

I stand corrected! Let's hope the people who can afford season baseball tickets don't give a hoot about the foos and/or aren't internet savvy!

You're kidding, right?

Anything in the lower level is upwards of $800 PER TICKET!
Cheapest is $161.
No thanks.
I guess I won't be seeing them in Chicago.

I want to know how tickets are available on stub hub right now...I didn't even see where they had any general admission tickets available.

cubs season ticket holders get first dibs. Plus ticket brokers always find a way to get the best seats early so they can sell them for a huge profit.

Actually, have seen Pearl Jam and Elton John/Billy Joel there. Sound was solid both times. As others have said, the view can be bad depending on what level of screens they have, although yes, the higher up you go, the sound does lessen some.
