Millenium Park in Downtown Chicago is such a beautiful place to see incredible music. The field and skyline are almost too incredible. You're right off Michigan Ave. with the full skyline of Chicago in eyesight.

I saw the Chicago Orchestra play here. The acoustics were very for being outdoor and the quality of music was obviously incredible. I definitely recommend seeing any live music here!!!
