Pearl Jam announces July concert at Wrigley Field

Pearl Jam will be playing at Wrigley Field Friday, July 19, the band confirmed this morning.

The band tweeted out, "IT'S OFFICIAL: Pearl Jam will be playing at Wrigley Field. Will you be there?" The show will be called “An Evening With Pearl Jam," with no opening act.

Tickets will go on sale Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. central, according to concert promoter Live Nation. Tickets will be available at www.tickets.com or by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS. Tickets will not be available at the Wrigley Field Box Office.

Pearl Jam and the Cubs haven't been very subtle about the possibility of the iconic band playing a concert at Wrigley Field in 2013.

Tuesday afternoon, both the Cubs and Pearl Jam Tweeted pictures of the field at Wrigley, with a full concert setup. The band's Tweet, featuring the "stay tuned" hashtag, also included a "looking good" reference to the Wrigley image.

The Cubs also played a role in the suspense, sending out a Tweet that included "Ten," and a repeat of the "stay tuned" hashtag. There was also a link to a photo of a Ron Santo Cubs jersey (No. 10), the parallel being that “Ten” is also the title of Pearl Jam’s first album.

The band also announced a July 16 date in London, Ontario.
