Van Halen Confirms Milwaukee Date

The Bradley Center will be rockin' on Monday, April 7, 2008 when the legendary rock band Van Halen comes to Milwaukee. Yes I said Monday. What's new. Either Milwaukee is skipped on a tour or given a great night like Sunday or Monday. Which would you prefer? I can remember going to see Coldplay on a Sunday night and they were kind of making fun of the fact that Milwaukee got them on "the worst night to play and see a show". They were great, but pretty funny.

Anyhoo. Van Halen wants to keep this train rolling through the spring. They are printing money; who would stop? Van Halen tickets haven't been posted on ticketmaster yet for the Milwaukee show.

The following was posted on a Van Halen fan blog as an unofficial set list:

01. You Really Got Me

02. I'm the One

03. Runnin' With the Devil

Bruce Springsteen Tickets for St. Patrick's Day 2008

Bruce Springsteen finally confirmed the rumors which had been swirling for weeks; that he would indeed play a St. Patrick's Day show at Milwaukee's Bradley Center. This show will be with his E Street Band and will mark the middle of his tour.

As usual, the floor seating at the Bradley Center will not have any reserved seats. They will all be general admission tickets with a face value of $65-$95 or so plus additional Ticketmaster service fees.
The Boss is always a huge hit with Milwaukeeans. I would suspect Bruce Springsteen tickets will go for a pretty penny in the secondary market, but with a little planning I wouldn't think it would be too difficult to get general admission tickets at the box office.
