***Official Tinley Park, IL Thread 2019***

Well, I hate pretty much everything about this venue. After having a spectacular time last year at Northerly Island, this is a real bummer.

Does anyone have anything good to say about the venue or any other positive spin to make me feel better?

    Tinley park, in my opinion, is way better than northerly. Northerly island is cool but if you really want to see the band you need to get seats or pit. Lawn sucks at northerly. Tinley isn’t the best venue but when comparing the two I prefer tinley. I’ve seen lots of shows at both.

    Better than Northerly and to get Alpine back makes it even better.

    tinley park is 1000% times better then northerly island for sure. First off, the lawn is a hill, not a flat surface, so you can actually see the stage from the lawn. the bathroom situation is much better at Tinley park. the sound is about the same at both places. neither place allows tailgating ( tinley park ordinance prohibits it). tinley park is much easier to get to if you actually do want to drive. Not the best place I have seen DMB, but gladly will take tinley over northerly island.

    Where the hell is the pit? Are all these black seats removable?

    Never been here but looks like the seating is not angled at all.

    Furious they chose to go back here. I will mostly likely find a bar in the city offering bus ride to concert and back with a bathroom. I like to drink so driving is not option.

    I love Northerly, no idea why people love to bitch and complain about it.

    Only good thing I have is that it used to be a legit venue 20yrs sho when it was The World. Hahahaha!

    In seriousness, they have upgraded the sound system over the years so the place isnít AWFUL. Its still a turd of a venue but itís like a polished shiny turd now.

    I never understood the hate for Northerly either. It's perfect for the mid-size shows it was originally meant for. Yeah, the lawn is the worst when they do big shows but I would never sit there anyway.

    I'm whatever on this. There's no perfect outdoor venue for them to play in this area. This show will be a nice midweek warm up for Alpine!

    The sound is horrible at Tinley and there is no tailgating. Sure, the lawn is better at Tinley because it was designed that way. But everything else about Tinley just sucks. Horrible venue.

    We can bitch and moan all we want but fact of the matter is that there really arenít any great venues in Chicago for shows this size.

    I would sell limbs to see them play Chicago Theater but it will never happen. Possibly a D&T show at some point but never full band.

    And you could maybe, MAYBE, argue the Pritzker Pavilion and do a great lawn type of show but those inside tickets would be harder to find than Helen Keller looking for her runaway dog.

    As others have said, this venue is 1000x better than Northerly. The fact that you can see the stage from your seats, and the lawn, immediately makes this a better option imo

    This. There's just no perfect spot and that's why I've always considered Alpine my home DMB venue anyway.

    For people in the 'burbs, this is probably a better place to go, for people in the city obviously Northerly would be better.

    So many years I have skipped Chicago completely and went to Alpine. There truly just isnít any great venues like you said. UIC Pavilion would be insane for a winter show but Iím not going inside for a summer show. Fuck that.

    Wrigley is always an option as well. I saw Pearl Jam there last year and I was actually shocked how good the sound was.

    I will say I have enjoyed shows at Tinley immensely more since I discovered where to get the $4 Busch Lights.

    My dream is to see them at Wrigley again. Fingers crossed for 2020.

    Yeah I mean we typically pregame somewhere before going to a show at tinley cuz no one tailgates there but a few years back I saw Steve Miller and journey there and people were like low key tailgating. I save the tailgating for alpine lol. Also for those who said no tailgating at northerly are 1000 percent wrong. We had an awesome tailgate there the past two years.

    Those are just folding chairs and no the fixed seats are not angled. A lot of meh all around but itís an extra Midwest show to catch while we can.

    Northerly Island is one of the worst venues i have seen this band play at.

    Well that and the black lung at Lakeside.

    What about Ravinia?! That may be too high end for us tailgating folks. Haha. But that could be a cool venue for a change.

    A little too small for DMB. Would love to see Dave and Tim there one day though.

    Ravinia would be fabulous for a summer D&T show.

    Wait, people still live in Illinois? I thought everyone left by now!

    Tinley is a fine venue. Alpine is the best DMB venue for this area.

    I fucking hate getting to Tinley. No public transit and finding an Uber back is such a pain. I don't want to drive, so the logistics just make it awful.

    Will figure it out, though.

    That is one thing I will say is a joke. Tinley PD sir and wait for DUIís. Theyíre not awful, and the people I have seen them pull over I donít necessarily disagree with, but come on. Youíre just going to line up 10 squads and fuck peopleís night up?!

    This is why I am so mad. I am going to find a bar in the city that offers a bus ride with a bathroom on board. Thatís a mandatory stipulation for me. Also, it sucks because I can convince anyone to go to a show downtown at NI, none of my friends are going to want to take a bus ride to Tinley with no tailgate or pregame bar.

    After doing N1 in Chicago last year, I won’t do a Chicago show ever again lol. Crap venue, crap show. Incredible city though! I fantasize about living there a lot.
