  • NFL at it's finest.. ok, not really, it IS the Bears after all.. Seriously, though, the "remodel" job was very well done!! Stop on by, catch a game and if not enjoy the Bears shop... 
  • You won't be able to see the Bears home locker room, but visiting the stadium is a must for Bears fans. You get to see the interior, visit the skybox rooms, visitors locker rooms, you can get to see t...  read more »
  • We went to a concert here.... Coldplay. They were great but I don't think I would go to another one here. I'll try for a different place. A storm came up that was torrential rain and lightening and fl...  read more »
  • Terrible accessibility!! Will never go back! Awful concessions, people were extremely slow and unmotivated. Took well over a half-hour to get a drink even though I was 5th in line! I could not believe this was a professional ball park!! Shameful!!
  • Look the stadium is fine and a clean venue to see a show/game physically but how they have managed to not staff the place adequately is beyond me. If you are going to assemble 60k people regularly then figure out how to get everyone inside expediently. We waited in line for over an hour because they had three people wanting people at the entrance. Absurd. Next you are going to screw me on food and drink 10.75 for 16oz of miller light. Fine. But then at least have enough bars going that indent have to stand in line for an hour every time I need a drink. Ridiculous.
  • The staff is terribly trained and not helpful. We went to a Coldplay concert and got the runaround from staff. We were told to go to the wrong place to pick up our tickets multiple times preventing us from gaining access to the venue. Once inside no one could give us proper instruction to locate our seats on the floor. It was extremely frustrating to have paid for such great seats but not get to them for a good 20 minutes. We missed a good portion of the concert as a result. We decided to travel to Philadelphia to see Coldplay at Lincoln Financial Field a few weeks afterwards and had the complete opposite experience - the event was well organized and employees were knowledge and helpful.
  • Our seats for Bayern Munich vs AC Milan were 6 rows back right next to the tunnel where the players entered and exited. The view was great. Soldier Field is relatively easy to get to. On a negative note, we arrived 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the game. There were literally hundreds if not thousands of us fans waiting and waiting to get through the bag check and ticket line. Some organizational genius should be able to come with a way to improve that awful experience. Another very frustrating thing was that the security staff did not do a good job of preventing fans from throng in our seating section whenever players were leaving the field. Overall it was a great experience.
  • We went to the Coldplay concert at this venue. The worst part was the weather delays. It set the concert back 2.5 hours, which was really frustrating given the money we spent for our tickets, but you can't really control that. We were thankful that they were allowed to go a little late so we could see all of their act even if we missed both of the openers. I would be weary about booking a concert here again just because of the weather aspect. Other than that, it was a great venue that held a lot of people!
