CHICAGO: In light of BLACKS attacking WHITES in the LOOP & DOWNTOWN is this a SURPRISE? Taste of Chicago concert ticket sales real slow
The revenue-strapped City of Chicago is for the first time charging admission for the best seats at Taste of Chicago main-stage concerts, but sales have been slow so far.
With Taste scheduled to start next week, nearly two-thirds of the $25 pavilion seats remain available to see Jennifer Hudson (Wednesday), Death Cab for Cutie (Thursday), Michael Franti (July 13), Chaka Khan (July 14) and Dierks Bentley (July 15) at the Petrillo Band Shell in Grant Park. Of 15,000 pavilion seats (3,000 per concert), 5,637 had been sold as of Thursday, the city reports.
Taste’s duration was cut in half this year as part of budget belt-tightening by the city, which has lost money on summer festivals in recent years.
