A pair of bands with Chicago roots have announced one-off shows in the Windy City in the coming weeks. First up is a private Aug. 2 Pearl Jam concert at the intimate Vic Theatre, which will serve as a warm-up to the band’s headlining set at Lollapalooza three days later. Tickets go on sale Thursday (July 26) exclusively to members of the band’s Ten Club fan organization; no public on-sale is planned.
Meanwhile, Wilco will play a Sept. 12 show at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park in what will be its only hometown performance of the summer. Tickets for the concert, only the fourth by a rock band at the venue since it opened in 2004, go on sale Saturday via Ticketmaster and the Vic Theatre box office. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
