Fukudome isn’t the biggest thing in centerfield these days.
After the Cubs doubleheader against St. Louis on Sunday, crews from Live Nation moved in and started erecting a massive stage in centerfield for the Elton John/Billy Joel concert tomorrow night. Country group Rascal Flatts will grace the stage on Saturday (July 18), and then John and Joel will return for a second show Tuesday night (July 21).
“It’s a unique opportunity — to enjoy music and be on the playing field,” said Carl Rice, Wrigley Field’s senior director of facility management.
With the stage in centerfield, the field can hold 8,000 seats and then thousands more in the stands. Seats at football stadiums can be as far as 800 feet away from the stage, but at Wrigley Field, the furthest seats are around 450 feet away, said Rice.
“It’s a fun and unique way for people to see Wrigley Field without seeing a ballgame,” said Rice. “And world-class acts want this to be a stop, and in most cases, it’s a highlight of their tour.”
Live Nation handles most of the direct set up, including building the stages and setting up the in-field seating. Crews work about 18 hours a day, right up until the Rocketman and the Pianoman take the stage.
Tickets are sold out for the Billy Joel\Elton John performance Thursday, but seats are still available for the duo’s second show and the Rascal Flatts concert. Go to www.tickets.com or call 1-800-THE-CUBS. Tickets will not be sold through the Wrigley Field Box Office.
