Wilco is coming to Millennium Park!

I know, I know; like you, I just crowded into the park to see The Decemberists, and it stunk because there were too many people. But consider this: Like the Tori Amos show a few years back, they are going to sell tickets, which will control the crowd. I can attest that the Amos show was pleasant-even on the lawn-and way more fan-friendly than The Decemberists show last week.

So, here are the details: Tickets for the September 12th show go on sale Saturday, July 28th, at 11 a.m. Reserved tickets are $45; lawn seats are $10. It’s Ticketmaster, so you can go online or charge by phone: 312-559-1212. Jam is putting this one on. If you rarely have luck buying tickets online, I’d recommend scoping out the Vic, which doesn’t have a service charge.

Any other tips for good places to get tickets? Let us know.
