Every year Wrigley Field hosts a slate of concerts featuring some of the most popular musical acts in the world. The summer of 2020 was supposed to be loaded with talent as the likes of Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue were originally scheduled to perform at the Friendly Confines. The COVID-19 pandemic put those concerts on hold last year, but they will go on in 2021 with some modified scheduling. Cubs spokesperson Julian Green said, "We'll be prepared in the event those concerts are allowed."
Previously purchased tickets for the 2020 concert dates will be honored for the new 2021 dates and times outlined below. The dates of these shows were adjusted due to projected band touring availability and the Cubs' home schedule.
