Next Friday July 1st and Sunday July 3rd, Axl, Slash and the boys will bring that energy to Chicago’s own Wrigley Field. The 2 day sold out event will be the first time the band has played Chicago in it’s original form since the mid 90’s!
Looks like we’re in for a real treat as the set list from the first show brings out all the hits from their beginning through the most recent, Chinese Democracy.
