About three or so weeks ago, I announced that Lupe Fiasco would be having a free concert in Chicago, Illinois at Grant Park in conjunction with the Nike 6.0 BMX Open June 26th. Well, things have changed since then. The event has been moved from Grant Park to the Chicago Theatre, in an effort to avoid overlapping with the Taste of Chicago music stage. However, more important than the change of venues, tickets will now cost $20. Tickets are now available starting today at the Chicago Theatre box office or via Ticketmaster.
Also, the doors will open at 8:30 p.m. and the show will begin with Lady Sovereign performing at 9:30 p.m. Lastly, Lupe will go on at 10:15p.m. Regardless if it is not free anymore, I will still be there. Lupe is one of my favorite artists, and $20 for a ticket is not bad at all.
