Live Nation announced Thursday that legendary musicians Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks will perform in concert at Chicago’s Soldier Field this summer for “one night only.”
The highly anticipated announcement was part of a mysterious, “special concert announcement” held at Soldier Field on Thursday by Ticketmaster’s parent company and Chicago Park District CEO and General Superintendent Rosa Escareno.
“These iconic musicians will perform their best-loved songs from their illustrious careers,” said a press release from Live Nation. “The spectacular show promises to be an unforgettable evening of live music.”
According to officials, this is the first time the artists will share a stage in Chicago.
Live Nation said the concert would take place on June 21, 2024. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 12 at 10 a.m. ET, with pre-sale through Citi and Verizon.
The show marks Joel’s first time in Chicago since 2018 – the final year of his five-year “consecutive sell-out streak at Wrigley Field,” Live Nation said. Last year, Nicks of the iconic group Fleetwood Mac sold out a show at the United Center.
The show follows an epic 2023 Chicago concert season, featuring Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Blink-182 and more. Several major artists have also announced Chicago shows for 2024, including Bad Bunny, The Eagles, Metallica and Zach Bryan.
