Pop artists and rock bands make up the can’t-miss concerts hitting the city this summer.

U2

June 3 & 4

Soldier Field

Bono and the rest of the U2 crew return to Chicago this upcoming month to kick off the summer music scene.  Playing at Soldier Field, the Irish rock touches down in the city for its tour marking the 30th anniversary of “The Joshua Tree,” where they’ll be playing the entirety of the 1987 album.  With United Center and Allstate proving to be too small for the band, this upcoming concert is set to be one of the most packed for U2 in Chicago.  If there’s a concert to see this summer, don’t miss out on the iconic rock band making their historic return for “The Joshua Tree.”

Kendrick Lamar

July 27

United Center

Fresh off his latest album “DAMN.,” Kendrick Lamar’s quick presence in Chicago this summer will easily be one of the biggest hip-hop scenes of the year.  Staging two concerts at United Center over the next few months, one on July 27 and the other August 20, Lamar will certainly draw some of the biggest crowds as his latest album once again proved the artist to be one of the best contemporaries in the genre.

Coldplay

August 17

Soldier Field

No stranger to Chicago, Coldplay marks their annual return to Soldier Field this summer as the British rock band finishes up their year-long “A Head Full of Dreams Tour.”  While they haven’t released a new album in almost two years, Coldplay has been gradually releasing singles over time – their most recently being a collaboration track with EDM duo The Chainsmokers called “Something Just Like This.”  For those awaiting new music from the band, Coldplay announced a new EP called “Kaleidoscope” set to release in the start of June.

Ed Sheeran

Sept 15 & 16

Allstate Arena

With three albums released, you’d think the English singer and songwriter would be playing at a bigger venue than Allstate, nonetheless Ed Sheeran’s upcoming concert in Chicago this fall will certainly be one of the most anticipated. His latest album “÷” debuted number one in both the United Kingdom and United States, and shows no sign of from leaving the top music charts anytime soon.  If there’s one artist that can entertain an entire crowd with just his voice and a guitar, it’s Ed Sheeran, and that alone should be able to get you to this concert.
