An estimated crowd of 50,000 is expected to gather at U.S. Cellular Field Saturday evening—but not for a White Sox game. The masses will be there to hear mega-pastor Joel Osteen and his wife, Victoria, for what’s being called a “Night of Hope.”

Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, reaches one of the largest audiences in the U.S.  His sermons typically attract 40,000 people, but he reaches millions more on television each week.

People who attend Saturday’s event at U.S. Cellular Field will hear an “inspirational message of hope and God’s love,” according to Osteen. Osteen’s children and other musical groups also will perform.

Similar events at Yankee Stadium in 2009 and Dodger Stadium in 2010 attracted more than 45,000 people, according to Osteen’s office.

Tickets for the U.S. Cellular event are still available. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the event starts at 7 p.m.
