On a unrelated note, I believe there are more porta potties in left and right field than there was total at Piedmont Park. No joke.

starting to get a lot more interest in this than i thought amongst the ranks. Chicago is always fun... as a Cubs fan (no need to be sympathetic) i can vouch that a trip a year to catch a series is among the highlights of the year every single year. a concert at Wrigley, while doesn't strike me as "Radiohead live at the Pyramids" or anything, would be sweet considering.

For some reason I always associate the Twins with the Cubs... maybe it's because 2 out of the 4 times i've been to wrigley for a game i've seen hoards of twins fans... and both games were against the Cardinals.

As I posted in the DMBc thread, someone at Ants who went to the Chicago City Council meeting this morning said that they approved the night event dates for Wrigley Field in September, so presumably an official confirmation should be out soon.

I wish they would hurry up and announce this (if it's actually going to happen) -- I'll be hitting this show up if it happens, and I'd like to get started making arrangements.

Getting a nice, reasonably priced hotel room in Chicago is tough even on slow weekends. The longer they wait, the more difficult it gets.

greppson

why don't you book the hotel now since the dates have been rumored since the beginning of summer? most places you can cancel for free as long as it is 24 hours before check in.

hey sorry maybe a dumb question.

if i request box seating ($75), would i also be eligible for terrace seating if box is not available since its the same price? i think thats what they did for the summer - request pit but also eligible for pavillion if pit fills up.

God I really want to go to both shows but I don't know if I can make it or if I even have enough moneys. GA field is so fucking expensive. Maybe I'll do the cheapest seats one night and field the other?

Are most of the TDC peeps just getting seats? I hope they wont be too far back/sound shitty

I don't understand why they are more than other shows, it is rediculous. I am hoping to get Field Boxes both nights, only reason is so I have a seat in case I do feel like resting. I'm not really caring so much how far away I am, but I hope I can at least hear them ok.

My guess is there are a lot of additional fees the band must play to allow another night event in Wrigleyville, despite it getting city council approval. No real reason to move up the price unless it's purely for profit, which I wouldn't completely doubt.

I talked to a couple of people at the VIP party at Citi last night about this, they also got declined for VIP Wrigley n2. I also recognized the woman that runs the VIP stuff, having met her in Pittsburgh last week, and asked her what's going on. She said there was just a ton of demand. I have done VIP 7 times, never been declined before. Anyway, I won't rest until I find VIP tix for it, I am fucking pissed off and determined.

Oh, and expect wrigley shirts that are cub blue with red font saying Dave Matthews Band and the dates wit a Cubs logo on the front, and DMB 10 on the back. They did this for both Pitt and Citi

I don't have a pic, but they were black with yellow writing. Said "Dave Matthews Band"

and then this logo:

http://images.cbssports.com/images/cbss/ui2/logos/mlb/160x100/PIT.gif

and then "PNC Park 7-10-10"

On the back is said "DMB" with the number 10 (for 2010). The back lettering was the same as the Pirates jerseys... just as it would be if you ordered a custom player tee from their team shop.

They were made by Majestic.

Instants are always a possibility -- with the number of people scalping right now (and being stupid about it -- I saw one ad on craigslist that announces he's selling WH GAs for $250 per), I'd be shocked if some confirmations don't get pulled and at least a few tickets get re-released into the wild.

you're a moron. words on a screen are stopping you from seeing a band you like. Did you happen to look at the setlist before that? A setlist two months before a show doesn't mean anything at all, especially with DMB. Hell, a setlist 2 days before doesn't have any indication. Charlotte opened with Minarets, that's awesome.

Chicago could go in any direction honestly. It more than likely will be two solid but standard shows, yet one night could blow the other out of the water. At this point, I'm ready for some released BW tunes that have been evolved, hopefully that happens at Wrigley.

They'll probably drop once the rumored winter tour is announced -- on the other hand, if they announce a 3 night stand in Charlottesville as the "last tour stop" before the hiatus, it could well trigger another round of break-up rumors and send prices for EVERY remaining show through the roof.

So my buddy had to back out and I almost had to back out of Wrigley yesterday, but luckily found another buddy to go. So now, I'm starting to get a little nervous. I've never driven in a city this big before so I'm trying to familiarize myself with some of the streets in Chicago. We're driving up from Little Rock. Our hotel is the City Suites Hotel. 933 West Belmont Avenue. Looks like it should be a quick walk to Wrigley.

So, does anyone from the area have any tips for someone who's never been to Chicago? Hotel says it has private parking nearby for $22 a day. GPS should help and we not have any problems, but I'm just getting a little nervous driving to this big of a place. You can PM me if you'd like with any tips or recommendations. Thanks guys and can't wait for the shows!

Doesn't sound like you will be driving much, but on your way in, just look out for crazy cab drivers. You will have a great number of bars in the area, but if you wanted to check out the downtown area, you are right within the CTA Redline and can take that to almost anywhere you want for a couple bucks.

One of the scariest experiences of my life was coming back to the hotel from a friend's bachelor party in Chicago. Cab driver was doing close to triple digits through the city at 3 or 4 in the morning. I was drunk and convinced I was going to die in the back seat of a cab listening to some angry talk radio in a foreign language.

Brixton lost points for not being a stand-alone DVD release... and of course people were pissed their was no Blu-ray option. A place like Wrigley would be a cool backdrop for another DVD.

And, there is a good chance that some of these songs get played:

Minarets
The Last Stop
Write A Song
Black Jack
Busted Stuff
Break For It

all of which have never seen DVD release, and a few haven't seen any release.

Hey, I'm all for it.

I'm going into this weekend with 0 expectations other than The Last Stop. Can't be disappointed if I don't care what they play.

Need to realize this is my last time seeing DMB for at least a year. So I'll just enjoy it :upyours

I built myself up for a big letdown at Alpine this year.
