Taste of Chicago 2012 Petrillo Music Shell Headliners Announced!

Taste of Chicago
Petrillo Music Shell
July 11-15 Headliners

Taste of Chicago 2012

The Taste of Chicago has lost money in its most recent years with the entire Taste being free.  As of this year the Taste will be charging for the headliners on the Petrillo Music Shell.  The announcement of the 2012 Petrillo Music Shell headliners notes the $25 extra Taste of Chicago patrons will have to ante up to see the Petrillo acts.  It really isn’t all that bad considering who the headliners are this year. For the $25 additional fee for each artist, Tasters get to see Jennifer Hudson, Death Cab for Cutie, Chaka Khan, and country artist Dierks Bentley. Note- As Mary May from the Department of Cultural Affairs has so kindly stated that the $25 charge is for the seating only. The lawn seats are still free to patrons of the Taste.
