Wrigley Prepares For “The Wall”

pink Floyd at Wrigley in ChicagoAs another summer draws near here in the windy city, so does concert season. To kick off this wonderful time of year, Wrigley Field will open its doors to Roger Waters, the former frontman to the iconic psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. Wrigley is just one of many stadiums Waters will stop in this summer to perform the album “The Wall”. He will do so on Friday June 8th on what definitely is the biggest stage Wrigley field has ever seen.

In just under a week a crew of tireless workers has turned this 98 year old baseball stadium into one of the premiere concert venues in the mid-west.

Hard to think that a baseball game was played here recently and that more will be played here starting Tuesday June 12, leaving Wrigley workers only a few days to prepare the field for baseball.  Judging by the massive structures erected for this show, I know one things for sure… This show will be loud and visually stunning. And I can’t wait to see it!
