Here we go again. If you're excited about the recently announced Rascal Flatts concert at Wrigley Field, you need to go talk to the residents of Wrigleyville. The neighborhood group — which consistently battles the park every single time it tries to stage a concert there — is protesting this show as being one too many for residents to bear.
Elton John and Billy Joel are scheduled in the Friendly Confines July 16 and 21, but the July 18 Rascal Flatts show as drawn a decidedly unfriendly response from the Southport Neighbors Association, which is begging aldermen to nix the country show. One of the claims is that the concert would attract too many people to the neighborhood during the association's seventh annual Summer on Southport Festival.
It's a really big city, folks. If you don't want to live next to a major national event venue, try the peace and quiet of Rogers Park. It's a buyer's market out there.
