Taste is proud to present Juanes with an opening performance by La Santa Cecilia!
For all Petrillo concerts, general seating tickets are $18 and premium seating tickets are $50. Admission to Taste of Chicago and lawn seating is free.
Tickets are also on sale for the new Taste Oasis, a new, air conditioned lounge in Butler Field offering tasty bites, cold water, a private cash bar, executive washrooms, music and more. If you’ve previously enjoyed the Celebrity Chef du Jour experience (not happening in 2018), give this new offering a try. Day passes for this exclusive area are $50.
Taste Oasis will be open throughout normal Taste of Chicago festival hours, but it’s particularly a great spot to hang out befor...e and after the Petrillo Music Shell concerts. (While you may be able to hear the concerts, you won’t be able to see them.) Food samples will be served Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 3 to 6pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 5pm. Children 2 years and under will be admitted at no charge; one child per adult.
International Latin Pop star, Juanes will headline Taste of Chicago on day two. The Colombian musician has won more than twenty Latin Grammy® Awards and Grammy® Awards combined. He has received multiple Best Artist, Best Rock Song and Album of the Year awards for the songs “Me Enmora,” “Mil Pedazos” and albums such as Juanes MTV Unplugged, Loco De Amor, Mis Planes Son Amearte and Fijate Bien–his first album in 2001. Known throughout the world, Juanes is also involved in social activism, and in 2005 established the Mi Sangre Foundation to raise awareness and help the victims affected by land mines.
La Santa Cecilia is the voice of a new bicultural generation. In 2014, the band won a Grammy® Award for their major label debut Treinta Dias for Best Latin Rock Album, Alternative or Urban. The band is made up of accordionist and requinto player Jose “Pepe” Carlos, bassist Alex Bendaña, percussionist Miguel “Oso” Ramirez and vocalist “La Marisoul.”
