First Pearl Jam tickets going to Wrigley neighbors

January 29, 2013|By Mick Swasko, @mickswasko | RedEye

Pearl Jam fans that count Wrigley Field as a neighbor can rejoice.

About 8,000 people signed up for the Cubs’ “Community Connection” e-newsletter were notified Tuesday that they will be among the first able to purchase tickets during a pre-sale Feb. 6-8 for the July 19 “An Evening with Pearl Jam” concert. Season ticket-holders are also included in the pre-sale.

Julian Green, vice president of communications for the Cubs, said the newsletter often alerts residents in the zip-codes immediately surrounding Wrigley of traffic alerts and special events, but it is also used to offer special presales.

“This is not for brokers, this is intended for people in the neighborhood that want to go to the concert,” Green said. The newsletter states that reselling of tickets is prohibited, and those who do are subject to cancellation.

The pre-sale runs from 10 a.m. Feb. 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 8, with sale to the general public beginning Feb. 9. The pre-sale is available only to residents who had already signed up for the newsletter.
