Article previews Toyota Park shows

July 23rd, 2008

Jimmy Buffett’s Year Of Still Here Tour rolls into southern Chicago this week for two shows at Toyota Park (Thursday and Saturday). The Southtown Star has an article on the upcoming shows:

The soccer stadium and concert venue will open its parking lot at 9 a.m. Thursday and Saturday so fans can tailgate before the 8 p.m. concerts.

Tickets still are available for Thursday’s concert, but Saturday’s concert is sold out, said Dan Garnett, the stadium’s general manager.

About 150 fans with mobile homes and recreational vehicles – 50 on Thursday and 100 on Saturday – will have the flexibility to spend the night in the parking lot if they want, Garnett said.


For the first time, tailgaters will be able to buy ice before the concerts and concessions at stands set up in the parking lot, Garnett said.

“We are trying to make people be self-sufficient, but we want to have necessities like ice,” Garnett said.


For safety reasons, no charcoal grills are allowed, he said. Only propane grills will be allowed.

“If people are drinking, the last thing we want is for them to bump into a grill full of hot coals,” he said.
