    Strong rumor, just like everything else. Only time will tell, keep your fingers crossed.

    I thought for sure they'd be at Lolla.

    Eh, Lollapalooza has been going in a different direction with their lineups, all very electronic/edm based to cater to the younger crowd. They'll throw in a gem headliner every now and then

    I'd rather see them outside of a festival for a longer concert + more interesting setlists.

    Agreed, I just assumed because PJ is 25 and Lolla is 25 expanding to a fourth day. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Soldier Field!

    Well they had Metallica and Paul McCartney last year. But yeah, I doubt Lolla is happening this year. Hope the Soldier Field rumor is true.

    True, honestly was very surprised they did that. Look at the rest of the lineup, a lot of electronic music and new age pop rock stuff.

    No because they are playing my basement for 3 nights around the same time you're rumored to have a show

    on a side note: I hope they play Soldier Field

    All of that would be unbelievable. All of that in 1 year will also make me broke or very frustrated & disappointed because I couldn't do some or all of those. :frowning:


    I may be in the minority here but instead of a Soldier Field show I would rather have 2-3 nights at the UC. :rock_on:

    I would take multiple shows indoors over 1 giant outdoor show most of the time. That being said, I'll still try to go if it does happen either way.

    but how often do you get the chance?

    I've seen them in a club, casino, small arena, midsize arena, large arena, amphitheater, outdoor festival, and a baseball stadium... i would love a show at soldier field... variety is the spice of life... I think it will be a blast, anywhere in the building... I may just go for nose bleeds to sit back and soak it all in

    This would be amazing! But hard on the wallet. If they could announce all the shows at once, I could maybe do 2 out of 3. Just wishful thinking...
