Wrigley Field Concerts 2018 to Feature Debuts of Fall Out Boy, Journey, Def Leppard

With another Chicago Cubs offseason comes the annual scheduling of much-anticipated Wrigley Field concerts.

Keeping in similar fashion to previous years, the 2018 Wrigley concert lineup will feature a mix of new and returning artists.

Diverse Wrigley Field Concert Lineup in Store for 2018

The Foo Fighters will be back at the Friendly Confines for the first time since 2015, with shows scheduled for July 29-30.

Earlier in the month, Jimmy Buffett will be back for a second straight year and fourth time overall on July 13, followed by Def Leppard and Journey, who will each make their respective Wrigley Field concert debuts during a performance on July 14.

The following month, Pearl Jam is set to return for a pair of concerts Aug. 18 and 20. It will mark the fourth and fifth appearances for the band, who last graced the center field stage back in 2016.

For the final round of Wrigley shows for the year, Luke Bryan will be back Sept. 1 along with special guests Sam Hunt and Jon Pardi. Chicago’s own Fall Out Boy will make its headlining debut on Sept. 8, while the evening before, “Piano Man” Billy Joel will be back for a fifth straight year, extending his all-time venue record to seven.

Last year’s jam-packed Wrigley Field concert lineup consisted of a year-high 10 shows, up from the previous high of seven in 2016. The 2018 total stands at nine, so we’ll see if a few more are announced before the start of the Cubs season.


A vast majority of the extensive Wrigley Field renovations are expected to be completed in 2018, but with parking typically limited in the area, your best bet is to reserve in advance with SpotHero.
