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.
