O.A.R. To perform during free music event

CHICAGO - To help Wrigley Field continue its season-long centennial celebration, American rock band O.A.R. will perform an Extra Innings Show as part of a free music event presented by Budweiser. The event will take place Saturday, August 23, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Red and Purple Lots on the west side of Wrigley Field.

O.A.R. will take the stage for an exciting 90-minute postgame set immediately following the conclusion of the Cubs' afternoon game against the Baltimore Orioles.

This summer, O.A.R released their eighth studio album, The Rockville LP, and recently played at the 2014 All-Star game in Minneapolis. The band is known for their vibrant shows-including selling out Madison Square Garden twice since the band formed in 1996. Fans will be able to sing along to some of O.A.R.'s most popular hits including "Love and Memories," "Lay Down" and a Friendly Confines favorite, "This Town."

The song "This Town" has found a special home at Wrigley Field. The lyric, "This town, this night, this crowd," has energized fans as the song plays while the Cubs are introduced before every 2014 home game. 

Fans will also have the chance to enjoy live entertainment starting at 11 a.m. CDT until the beginning of the game, and after O.A.R.'s postgame set.

Available for purchase during the performance will be ballpark food and beverage options which include Vienna Beef hot dogs, snacks and Anheuser-Busch products, as well as O.A.R. merchandise.

The event is free to the general public and limited to a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please visit www.cubs.com.
