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!

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 mkesummerfest.blogspot.com), 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?
