Jim Cornelison, of our Lincoln Park Halsted office, sings the Star Spangled Banner at the home games for the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. Jim has become a trademark of the Blackhawks’ home games with the thunderous applause that accompanies his singing of the National Anthem. With the help of the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) 2010 audience, Jim duplicated his renowned United Center performance at the CMLS 2010 Conference at the Westin Chicago River North.

It is very rare that there are concerts at Wrigley Field given it’s location in the middle of Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. This weekend was one of those rare weekends. Dave Matthews Band performed Friday and Saturday nights with Jason Mraz who opened the show both nights.
When tickets went on sale they sold out in a matter of minutes, and the rooftop options around Wrigley became a popular alternative. While the best “seats” were in the outfield, the show could be heard for blocks around the stadium.
Similarly to the congestion caused by Cubs games, this was no exception. Coming from north as far as Evanston and as far south as the loop there was no avoiding traffic, pedestrians and packed busses and trains approaching Wrigleyville. Although the concert caused congestion around the city, Wrigley Field was the perfect venue for Dave Matthews Band to perform this summer, and it’s not too far from Prudential Rubloff’s Lincoln Park office.
In the end, the inability to get tickets on the field and the congestion getting to Wrigley, Dave Matthews Band, as always, put on an amazing show. What a great way to end the summer season in the city!
