Taste is proud to present Brandi Carlile with an opening performance by Martha Redbone Roots Project!
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 spo...t to hang out before 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.
Grammy® Award-nominated singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, along with her longtime collaborators Tim and Phil Hanseroth, will headline the Petrillo stage on opening night. Their acclaimed new album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which received 4-stars in Rolling Stone, remains one of the best reviewed albums of 2018 and includes the breakthrough first single, «The Joke.»
Opening the evening’s performances is the Martha Redbone Roots Project. Ms. Redbone is an award-winning musician celebrated for encompassing all boundaries of Americana in her music. Her latest CD, The Garden of Love — Songs of William Blake, produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder and Grammy® Award winner John McEuen, features a masterful cornucopia of roots music that includes folk, country, blues, gospel, soul and more.
