Demand remains high for Milwaukee Brewers opening day tickets. I haven't been able to find a deal anywhere. I thought I had some tickets purchased on Ebay, from some guy named Damon, but they never showed - what a dick! Most of the brokers are charging $79 and up, maybe calling my friends at Ticket King is the way to go. It looks as though Brewers tickets are going to be a hot commodity this year!

I found a great blog for ticket info in and around the Twin Cities. Twin Cities ticket guy definitely has a pulse on what's happening in the great state of Minnesota, guy. A lot of times bands will skip, the even greater state of Wisconsin, and play Minneapolis or St. Paul forcing us Wisconsinites to ROAD TRIP. Twin cities ticket guy looks to have the info you need to make an informed decision on where to buy tickets. So start planning your road trip to see the Pack kick ass in the Metrodome. My thought is that Green Bay Packer tickets in Minnesota will start out around $145 each if you use a broker such as Ticket King ( always a good choice). Anyway, check out if you're heading to Minnesota to catch a game or show.

Milwaukee Brewers Home Opener the Hottest Ticket Around!

The Milwaukee Brewers open their 2007 season this coming Monday, April 2. If interest in the opener against the Dodgers is any indication for the rest of the season, we are in for a good year!

All of the local bars were sold out of their ticket packages months ago. Local ticket brokers can't keep tickets in stock. Everyone wants to go. Certainly every year, the opener is big regardless of the talent on the team; this holds true in ballparks across the country. However, here in Brew City, something feels different this year. Check out Milwaukee's Own Brew Crew for great updates on the team; including a full report from AZ!

Cheap Milwaukee Bucks Tickets

If you are an NBA fan and you don't care that the Milwaukee Bucks are having an awful season, there are excellent bargains on tickets to the remaining Milwaukee Bucks games. For Example, I was surfing the net and it is possible to get into the game on April 1st versus the Washington Wizards for as little as $14.00/Ticket. You should grab your spouse, friends or kids and check out one of the remaining Milwaukee Bucks games. At those prices, I am definitely attending at least one more game with my family. I am a sucker for a bargain and an NBA game at the Bradley Center for only $14.00 is a huge bargain. I don't even care that the Milwaukee Bucks are a million games out of the NBA Playoffs.

Jimmy Buffett at Alpine Valley SOLD OUT!

I heard through the grapevine that "they" haven't seen a Jimmy Buffett show in the Midwest sell out as quickly as the one set for July 28th at Alpine Valley in East Troy, WI. Tickets through Ticketmaster were anywhere from $33 to $123 per ticket (plus additional handling charges) for the show. These prices were a little higher than they were last year. If you haven't already purchased your Jimmy Buffett tickets, you'll need to take a look at the secondary market. I have had the best luck working with a local Wisconsin ticket broker - there you will be able to pick among the most options which are priced fairly. So many folks are just looking for a lawn seat for a show at Alpine Valley; my research found those going for $74 and up for Jimmy Buffett. Fair enough to me. Bring on the margaritas!

Look at the stars....

Summer in Brew City

It appears to be that time again. The air smells sweeter and the Summer concert season is knocking on our door. In a weak moment I have decided to share my love for live music, live sporting events and, albeit occasional, live theatre, with you the time-killer who was lucky enough to stumble upon this blog.

As far as concerts go, the Milwaukee area already has a few highlights to look forward to in 2007. As of today, four nights of Summerfest include Roger Waters, Toby Keith, John Mayer (encore with Jessica?) and The Fray/OK Go. If you haven't experienced Summerfest in Milwaukee; I would highly recommend it. Without going in to too much detail (see, there is live music and comedy for all folks, all day long for 10 days straight! Tickets for the headlining acts at the Marcus Amphitheater include admission to the rest of the Summerfest grounds. I believe the Roger Waters show is basically sold out, with the other shows selling really well (John Mayer goes on sale this Saturday - he sold out the show last month in Madison, WI, he'll do it again here!).

The Brew City supports Summerfest like crazy; so even if you are thinking a show won't sell out based on popularity/pricing etc, I would recommend you do your homework and lock in some tickets sooner rather than later. If nothing announced for Summerfest 2007 peaks your interest, wait it out, there are seven more nights to fill!

The Police? Dave Matthews Band? Did I mention The Police?
