ZAC BROWN BAND RETURNS TO WRIGLEY FIELD
Chicago, IL – Last Saturday, Zac Brown Band returned to the home of the Chicago Cubs, who for the first time since moving into historic Wrigley Field in 1914 are defending World Series Champions. The band finished up a three-night stint of shows which included performances by Green Day and Lady Gaga earlier in the week.
SES deployed their custom lighting package specifically designed to provide consistent performance regardless of the venue type which ranged from amphiteatres to Major League Baseball ballparks during the Welcome Home Tour. The lighting package utilized the new Robe Spiiders in addition to a combination of fixtures from Phillips Vari-Lite, Martin Professional, Claypaky as well as Elation Professional to illuminate the Northern Chicago night.
Before Zac Brown Band began their set, Hunter Hayes warmed up the Illinois crowd for the final stadium show of the Welcome Home Tour. As fans continued to file into Wrigley Field the rooftop bleachers overlooking the ivy draped outfield walls reached full capacity as well. As the set change neared an end, the light rain finally moved out minutes before Zac Brown Band took to the stage, ensuring a successful evening rounding out the final night of Wrigleville’s 2017 concert season.
Just as they did at Coors Field in Denver last month SES and Zac Brown Band teamed up with G2 Structures who has provided their services for all of Wrigley Field’s concerts this summer. FPA (Field Protection Agency) also deployed their signature product GroundShieldz throughout the outfield as well as in the Cubs’ bullpen which had been setup as the refreshment area for VIP guests.
Still riding high from a big night at Wrigley, the Welcome Home Tour finished up the weekend Sunday night in St. Louis before heading north of the border to Toronto, for back to back shows this weekend on Lake Ontario.
