It’s the fifth straight year for him at the ballpark.
Concert announcements are trickling out for next summer’s Wrigley Field list of shows.
Monday, we got an announcement about the return of Billy Joel:
The Piano Man is slated to perform Sept. 7 at the Cubs ballpark. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 29. Joel has played Wrigley Field every year since 2014 — a venue record — and he played two shows there with Elton John in 2009.
As always, there will likely be a season-ticket holder and neighborhood resident presale.
Here is an updated list of concerts so far (the Pearl Jam shows have not been officially announced):
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 7: Billy Joel (Cubs in Washington, next home game September 10)
