So the Spice Girls are reuniting; so what. They didn't pick our great city by a great lake as the next "Spice City". That distinction went to Toronto.
Well, we have plenty other great acts coming our way. Dave Matthews Band always plays a weekend at Alpine Valley. This year the DMB will play August 25 and 26. The Saturday night show sold out immediately through the box office, with Sunday darn close to a sell out. If history repeats itself, this is the week to lock in Dave Matthews Band tickets for Alpine Valley, as all the latecomers get on board.
Rumors of an Eagles / Dixie Chicks tour were confirmed, although no dates were listed for the Midwest yet. I would be surprised if we didn't see this concert coming to the Bradley Center. It smells of a Saturday night in the middle of a cold Wisconsin winter.
Who else is on tap? We have Rush and Brad Paisley, separately of course, closing out the Marcus Amphitheater season for 2007. There is the ever popular WWE RAW tickets which went on sale last weekend. It never ceases to amaze me how everyone I ever talk with about wrestling needs to sit first row ringside. Never anywhere else. Are the rest of the people in the stands just seat fillers for TV, a la the Oscars?
An article in Rolling Stone about The Police positioned for additional US dates in to 2008. Even with poor reviews, I think The Police coming to Milwaukee would be a good thing. Hey, if Def Leppard can sell out year after year; The Police can sell out a night at the Bradley Center!
