Dave Matthews Band To Play Wrigley Field

Remember when the Dave Matthews Band's bus driver dumped 800 pounds of raw sewage into the Chicago River? Well, the band is hoping to put all that behind them when they close out their tour at Wrigley Field in September.

Initially, Elton John and Billy Joel were planning to play the ballpark, but Billy Joel wanted to take a year off and the plans were scrapped.

Instead, Dave Matthews and crew will finish their tour in Chicago, playing two back-to-back shows at Wrigley September 17 and 18, NBC Chicago reports.

The shows will be the band's last before their hiatus, according to NBC:

DMB plans to take time off from the road in 2011, after 20 consecutive years of touring.

Jason Mraz is slated to open the shows, and tickets go on sale July 17.
