The date and venue have been confirmed as has the on-sale date for tickets. Jonsi & Co. will be visiting the Chicago Theatre on Wednesday, September 24 at 8 p.m. There are the typical presales happening over the next week before the general public on-sale via Ticketmaster next Saturday, June 28, at high noon.
