Summerfest in Milwaukee: Marcus Amphitheater Schedule

In Milwaukee, Summerfest is a BIG deal. People eagerly await the announcement of who the headlining acts will be to take the stage at the Marcus Amphitheater (the Summerfest grounds' major league venue that seats 23,000).

As I write this the schedule is as follows:

June 29: Def Leppard with Styx and Foreigner
June 30: The Fray with OK Go and Mae
July 1: to be announced
July 2: Roger Waters of Pink Floyd
July 3: John Mayer with Ben Folds and Brett Dennen
July 4: Tool
July 5: Bon Jovi
July 6: to be announced
July 7: to be announced

July 8: Toby Keith with Miranda Lambert anad Flynnville Train

Who will it be to fill in the gaps? It is any one's guess. I was still hopeful for The Police. If another country music act isn't added I will be shocked.

Tickets have already gone on sale through Ticketmaster for all but the Tool show. The Roger Waters show (where he with a full band will play Dark Side of the Moon in it's entirety) is SOLD OUT. In all actuality, I haven't seen any quality tickets remaining for any of the shows through the box office.

Summerfest shows ALWAYS sell well. You can check out a ticket broker for some great Roger Waters tickets or some Bon Jovi tickets. A good one will get you the tickets you are looking for at a fair market price - no hidden fees or charges.

Inexpensive Rod Stewart Tickets

For those of you who didn't pick up Rod Stewart Tickets for the show this weekend at the Bradley Center, no worries. I just checked online. There are seats available for less than face value and it looks like you can pick them up right near the Bradley Center.

I found some nice seats on the floor in Section 5, Row GG for only $99/ticket - that's 7th row behind the pit - not bad at all! That is a great deal considering that the same seats were selling for more than twice that amount a few weeks ago when I checked. It is not too late to get seats for Rod Stewart's show this Saturday in Milwaukee, but don't wait because at those prices, they won't last.

Green Bay Packers Tickets Available

With the Green Bay Packers 2007 schedule being announced today at noon CST, tickets will be available in the secondary market immediately. I would suspect ticket pricing will be similar to last year's, with the assumption still being that this season will be Brett Favre's last. (May I add a personal note of great sadness over this assumption)

Green Bay Packers tickets for the preseason games are always considerably less expensive than the regular season, and offer a great excuse for quality family time. That said, the REAL action comes with the NFL regular season action. The Bears fan trek up to Lambeau. The Vikings fans make their way across the state. This holds true for ALL of the visiting teams playing the Green & Gold. Lambeau Field is one of very few venues, you MUST visit for a game at least once in your life.

Experts agree, there isn't a bad seat at Lambeau Field. Certainly a 50 yard line seat, 20 rows up is near perfection, but folks sitting in the end zone behind the uprights, 60 rows up are rarely found complaining.

Harry Connick Jr. Tickets below Face Value!

He's a triple threat. He's coming to Milwaukee this Friday to play the great Milwaukee Theatre. This renovated venue opened in 2003 and is really a gem. The Milwaukee Theatre accommodates roughly 4,000 with great views of the stage from most seats in the house.

Good tickets are still around for Harry Connick Jr. and can be bought below the face value! On his new album, "Oh My NOLA", Connick delivers a great mix of songs inspired by the Crescent City. I would buy your Harry Connick Jr. tickets before Friday and take advantage of the good deals to see this terrific artist! Look at him, he's begging you.

Happy Campers at Milwaukee Brewers Opener!

Tickets for yesterday's Milwaukee Brewers home opener were no where to be found. With the performance yesterday, Milwaukee fans are pumped up and buying up tickets for the rest of the season. With the marketing department at the Brewers working overtime, fans have the many retro bobble head nights earmarked on their calender. (I would suggest arriving early and with your fists up)

The Cubs are coming to town early this year. Perfect way to spend Easter Sunday - who needs ham when you can have an ice cold one at Miller Park!
