Report: Bruce Springsteen To Play At Wrigley In September

CHICAGO (CBS) — The Boss may be coming to Wrigley Field, and we don’t mean Cubs baseball operations president Theo Epstein.

The Chicago Sun-Times’ Thomas Conner Thursday morning that a source with the Cubs is saying Bruce Springsteen tentatively plans to perform at Wrigley Field in September.

No dates have been announced, although some ticket brokers are already listing a Springsteen concert with a date of Sept. 8. No tickets are listed yet, Conner pointed out.

The Cubs will be on the road between Sept. 3 and 13.

If Springsteen does come to Wrigley Field, his concert will be the second during the coming baseball season.

Roger Waters will bring his tour of the classic Pink Floyd opus “The Wall” on June 8. Waters decided to stage “The Wall” as an outdoor show for the first time in 2010, and decided to launch a baseball stadium tour for this year.

This past summer, thousands crowded the stands and bleachers at Wrigley Field – and the sidewalks surrounding the ballpark – for two concerts by Paul McCartney.

The Cubs ballpark hosted its first concert, by Jimmy Buffett, in 2005. It was followed in subsequent years by the Police, Elton John and Billy Joel, Rascal Flatts, and the Dave Matthews Band.

      Gee Grandpa, ’cause we’d rather see him than some steroid-driven lard head dump Gatorade all over the dugout because he can’t hit a little white ball.

    Good! The Cubs won’t need it that late in the season.

    Who gives a rats ass

    The city violent crime rate for Chicago in 2009 was higher than the national violent crime rate average by 162.11% and the city property crime rate in Chicago was higher than the national property crime rate average by 39.94%.

    In 2009 the city violent crime rate in Chicago was higher than the violent crime rate in Illinois by 126.41% and the city property crime rate in Chicago was higher than the property crime rate in Illinois by 55.23%

    Chicago has been run by the Dems for so long it’s nothing but a Cesspool endlessly spawing murdering, thieving, drugging, repulsive, putrid scuuum upon the earth.

    Oh joy…Bruce is coming. WE get to hear BORN TO RUN and Born in the USA…AGAIN! Over and over and over.

    I will pass, I am sure HaleStorm or 5FDP will be playing somewhere. Or the AVM Band, or Adelitas Way….I would rather see ALVIN CALVIN AND THEODORE before i shell out hundreds of bucks to see this LAMEO play the same tired old songs.

    New album=New songs, which is a reason for a 2012 tour. Also, get your chipmunks straight.
