Millennium Park is big and, for most of the park’s 1,400 acres, there’s no admission fee. All you have to do is park and explore! … Also, the park offers two open picnic shelters which you can reserve for a fee.
If you’re parking in the Loop (red zone), be ready to pay $6.50 per hour from 8am to 9 pm. These rates half during the night to $6.50 for 2 hours from 9pm to 8am. For parking in the Central Business District (yellow zone) – expect to pay $4.00 per hour between 8am and 10pm. Parking is free outside of these hours.
In fact, the L has been safer than ever over the past five years since the Chicago Transit Authority’s much-publicized expansion and installation of a $26 million surveillance network consisting of 3,600 cameras on rail cars and platforms. … In short, some areas in Chicago are safe, but others are dangerous.
Like others have said, the Red Line will be very safe on that stretch, especially immediately following the concert. I take the Red Line any time up to about 1 a.m. or so. If it would make you feel better, sit in the front car, where the driver is.

In most touristy areas, such as Michigan Ave. and Millennium Park, you’ll be safely surrounded by tourists, and while The Loop gets empty at night, it’s unlikely you’ll be mugged or robbed. Use basic common sense when walking or driving in these areas.
Though the park is reopening, it’s not going back to normal. People will be able to visit the Chase Promenades, the Boeing Galleries and Lurie Garden, but Crown Fountain and Wrigley Square will be open without their water turned on.

Re: Blue line at night– safe? In general yes, the blue line runs 24/7, and there will be many people on the train during the early/late evening. I would still be aware of your souroundings and stand/sit near other people while waiting and on the train.
