If you’ve never seen a concert at Chicago’s historic Wrigley Field, 2017 is a great year to start. For the first time ever, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will take the centerfield stage on June 29, followed by the two-night debut of Dead and Company, June 30 and July 1.
Then, just a few weeks later, Jimmy Buffett will return for the first time since 2005 with support from Huey Lewis and The News.
Two days later, the legendary James Taylor will perform at the landmark ballpark on July 17 for a second straight year. Taylor will be performing alongside Bonnie Raitt during his Monday night summer performance.
On Aug. 11, the "Piano Man" himself, Billy Joel, will return for a fourth consecutive year, and fifth time overall.
Fans will be able to get their country music fill in August as well, via a headlining appearance by Florida Georgia Line (with special guests Nelly, Chris Lane and Backstreet Boys), while a few weeks later, Zac Brown Band will be back for a third time on Aug. 26.

Let the guide below help you find the perfect seats to see this year’s headliners live at “The Friendly Confines.”
Wrigley Field Seating Views
With seating options ranging from the Field Level to the Upper Deck, Wrigley Field concert capacity checks in at just over 42,000 fans. The stage will typically be set up in the outfield, and large screens feature into most stage setups so that even the farthest fans can have a view of the live show.
Wrigley Field – Field Level Views
Wrigley Field concerts give fans the chance to watch live performances from the very field where the Cubs have played for more than a century. Some acts, like Zac Brown Band, offer general admission options close to the stage on the Field Level for an up-close-and-personal concert experience.
Many artists also offer reserved seating set up in the outfield on the Field Level. Some of these seating options may be farther from the stage, but the physical seat secures you a specific spot on the field.
Wrigley Field – Club and Field Box Level Views
The Club and Field Box Levels are the first seating options in the main stadium. While you’ll be farther from the stage in these two levels than you are on the Field Level, you’ll have a slightly elevated view of the performance.
Wrigley Field – Terrace Level Views
One of the last lower levels of the stadium, the Terrace Level still gives fans a fairly direct view of the outfield stage during Wrigley Field concerts. These seating options are located under the overhang of the Upper Deck.
Wrigley Field – Upper Deck Views
Although the Upper Deck seats for Wrigley Field concerts are farthest from the stage, this venue has great acoustics that allow the show to be heard crystal-clear in these uppermost reaches of the stadium.
