Everything you need to know about visiting Soldier Field (1410 S Museum Campus Dr, Chicago IL 60605)
Home to the Chicago Bears, the city’s football stadium is where groups like the Rolling Stones and U2 play when the weather’s warm and they’d rather not be cooped up in the United Center.There are very few bad seats in the house, and despite the often difficult parking situation (we recommend taking the El to one of the two connecting buses, and there is also a shuttle service), the cool lakefront breeze makes concertgoing here a pleasant experience.
By the numbers
Soldier Field can hold approximately 61,500 fans, and the stadium we know and love today opened in 2003 after being constructed in just under two years. There are nearly 1,000 TV screens scattered throughout the stadium for views of just about everything happening on the field. Guests can also admire the 280-food granite Veteran's Memorial water wall, which honors American war veterans.
