Soldier Field Gets Big Names This Summer

In case you didn't catch the news yesterday, the Sloop's local sporting facility -- aka Soldier Field -- announced that some titans of their respective industries will be coming to our neigbhorhood.

From a pop/hip-hop perspective, the Legends of Summer tour, featuring Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake will be here on July 22nd and undoubtedly singing this song:

Monday concerts aren't are favorite, but we may have to suck it up to see a good show.  On a different but related note, we heard a rumor that Jay-Z was headlining Lolla this year...looks like that probably ain't happening.

Soccer fans will be happy to hear that Lionel Messi and friends will be playing a game at Soldier Field in early July.  For those not familiar with Football, Messi is the current "it" player.  Some would even go as far to say the best ever.  Judging by this video, it would be hard to argue:

Other acts coming to Soldier Field this year include Taylor Swift on 8/10 and Bon Jovi on 7/12.  You probably won't find the Sloopin Crew at those.
