Buffett Concerts Win First Round Of Approval


CHICAGO (AP) With the okay from a neighborhood group, the Chicago Cubs are moving forward with a plan to host a concert at Wrigley Field over this year's Labor Day weekend.

A Cubs spokesman says team officials are proposing a one-time concert weekend for the Cubs ballpark.

The Cubs are negotiating with singer Jimmy Buffett for the pair of concerts and have agreed to cap attendance at 39-thousand.

The board of the East LakeView Neighbors on Monday voted five-to-four in favor of the Labor Day weekend concert.

Alderman Thomas Tunney has requested that Cubs donate three-thousand tickets to Wrigley Field neighbors and donate up to 150-thousand dollars of proceeds to neighborhood schools.

The Chicago City Council still must approve the concert proposal.
