CHICAGO -- Tonight is Take Two for the Mumford and Sons and their fans. Their concert was supposed to take place on Wednesday but was rescheduled to tonight due to weather and the stage not being ready.

Mumford and Sons blamed the rainy weather that delayed construction of their stage and offered refunds to fans.

Concert promoter Jam Productions will have to pay the city $65,000 for moving the concert to tonight.
With the concert back on some Uptown residents are worried about noise in traffic in the area and don't want concertgoers to leave a mess.

But the city wants to host more concerts at this location for the revenue so Alderman James Cappleman says they're keeping a close eye on things. They urged fans to take public transportation. CTA is running extra buses and trains on the Red Line. The Wilson stop is just two blocks West of the location..
Fans are also encouraged to bike. There will be 5000 spots for bike valet.

Another worry for residents is the potential for damage to the grass. Ald Cappleman says they took pictures of what it looks like now and if it looks different after tonight's concert, the concert promoter is on the hook for replacing it.
On Wednesday, 35,000 fans were expected. It's unclear if that many will be here tonight. Tickets are still available.
