Many times, concert dates are zealously guarded by promoters and acts until they’re totally ready to release dates, ticket sale info, etc.
Sometime Friday, Pearl Jam’s official website apparently accidentally leaked the dates of several baseball park shows for 2018, including two dates at Wrigley Field: August 18 and 20.
According to that link, Pearl Jam will also be playing Safeco Field in Seattle and Fenway Park in Boston.
No information on ticket sale dates for these shows is yet available.
Here’s the updated complete list of Wrigley Field concerts as of today, a total of six concert nights for four acts:
July 14: Def Leppard/Journey (Cubs in San Diego, next home game July 19)
July 29-30: Foo Fighters (Cubs in St. Louis, next home game August 2)
August 18, 20: Pearl Jam (Cubs in Pittsburgh, next home game August 23)
September 8: Fall Out Boy (Cubs in Washington, next home game September 10)
There will, no doubt, be more shows announced. Last year there were 10 concerts and the Cubs have more weekday afternoon games scheduled this year than last, implying they have left more weeknight dates for concerts.
As always, we await developments.
UPDATE: The Cubs confirmed the Pearl Jam shows on Wednesday, January 24.
