Common sightings will be -- well, commonplace this coming weekend.

The Chicago rapper, actor and philanthropist's first public event will be Friday when he throws out the first pitch at the Chicago White Sox home opener.

On Friday, Common hosts his annual signature charity event at the Ritz Carlton with proceeds benefiting the Common Ground Foundation.

Tickets for that event are sold out, but space remains for the after-party at the Chicago Illuminating Company.

The bash features beats by longtime collaborator the Twilite Tone and DJ Mark Fullaflava and will of course feature an appearance by Common himself.

Tickets are $25 for general admission and $40 for VIP.
