    Billy Joel and Luke Bryan are coming to Wrigley Field this summer.

    Live Nation and Wrigley Field officials announced the news of Joel’s return to the stadium at a press conference Thursday while Bryan revealed news of his concert to fans in a Facebook video posted Wednesday.

    The announcement marks Joel’s fifth return to the venue, and his third consecutive summer appearance. It will also be Bryan’s first-ever performance at the Chicago field and his first concert in a baseball stadium.

    Joel, who has sold more tickets than any other performer at Wrigley Field, is scheduled to perform on Aug. 26, according to Live Nation Chicago President Jason Wright.

    Bryan will follow with a performance on Aug. 27.

    “I’m amazed that I’ve gotten to play the United Center, Soldier Field and now at Wrigley,” he said in his announcement for his Kill the Lights Tour. “Pretty cool stuff.”

    The August concerts will follow June performances by James Taylor and Jackson Browne.
