Charter One Pavilion is erected at the southern end of Northerly Island. From 1948 to 2003 the island was home to the Meigs Field airport. In the middle of the night, without any public notice, Mayor Daley ordered bulldozers to demolish the runway. The Mayor claimed he closed the airport for security reasons and wanted to turn the area into a nature preserve and park. Not too long after, plans were announced for concerts and a concert venue on the island, touching off more controversy.

It is for these reasons that the concert venue at Northerly Island is a temporary structure. At the end of each season it is disassembled and stored for the winter, returning the artificial island to its natural state. This is particularly important in the Spring and Autumn because since the island was built, it has become a popular rest area for migratory birds.

Like it, or hate it, building a temporary concert venue that handles 8,000 people is quite a feat. Even the welcome sign is temporary. The only permanent parts are the pavement, lights, and electrical junctions.

Pavement huh? A Futhur show might be just about the only thing that would get me to hang out on BLACKTOP on a 100 degree day. Stay cool and be safe people

Wow, you're aren't kidding, blacktop on a 100+ degree day is going to be tough. Hopefully, it'll cool off quickly as the sun sets. Still, be careful out there, folks!!!

We're at 100 here in Michigan, on our way to a record 101 or more. Yuck. It's supposed to be "only" about 90 tomorrow, so the show won't be the hottest they've had this tour. But with 60% humidity, we'll still feel it, so dress loose, bring a bandana to wet down and help keep cool with, and it should be better by the second set!

The city added a red star to its flag in 1933 to commemorate the Century of Progress Exposition (it was the fourth of the four stars currently on the city of Chicago flag)
