UB40 at Ravinia (7:30 concert start)
posted August 19, 2017 11:55 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat September 2 at 5:30 PM, Ravinia Park
200 Ravinia Park Rd, Highland Park, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
UB40 with opening band, Raging Fyah.
Since I have to be in the area, I thought a meetup would be in order. I haven't seen either band but I hear UB40 is sorta well-known. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The metra's Union Pacific North line train stops right at the Ravinia venue so driving is not required. You can bring as much food, adult beverages, and chairs as you can manage. You can also rent chairs instead.Metra is $8 RT on concert weekends. Bring an umbrella, or go with the flow, as the concerts go on rain or shine.

I'm suggesting lawn tickets (food not allowed in pavilion) and arrival by at least 5:30 to get a good lawn spot. Post if you're bringing food to share. I can memail my cell day before or day of.

4:30 PM Donor Gates Open
5:00 PM Public Gates Open
7:30 PM Concert Starts
Tickets: $70 / $60
Lawn: $27**
**Lawn ticket price increases $5 on the day of the performance
(There are scalpers there which I think is legal in Illinois.)
