Pearl Jam Rocks Wrigley Field Friday Night

Eddie Vedder & Co. will take the stage for a Friday night show at Wrigley, while the Cubs are playing the Rockies in Denver.

If you're going to this show (I'm not; just not a big Pearl Jam fan), you already know all the details of the Pearl Jam show at Wrigley Field Friday night.

If not, you should know that this was the fastest-selling of all the Wrigley concerts to date, which surprised me, though I was told by Pearl Jam fans later that I shouldn't have been surprised.

One thing you might not know, and what you might not know, is that at 12:45 CT Friday, this was the line for Pearl Jam merchandise outside the main entrance at Wrigley Field:

According to a couple of reports on Facebook, some of those people had been waiting in line since 7 a.m.

Hey, whatever floats your boat. Here's a little secret that you might want to take advantage of if you like Pearl Jam and weren't able to get tickets to the show: the live webcam from SportsWorld, directly across from Wrigley (where that screencap photo came from), has live audio. When there's a concert, you can hear it very well from that link. The audio quality is surprisingly good, other than the occasional bus going by.

Enjoy the show. And bring rain gear:

Tonight: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 76. West southwest wind 5 to 15 mph becoming north northwest after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph.
