Milwaukee. A Great City by a Great Lake. Yes, it's a fine city. It's no Chicago, New York or San Francisco, but it's livable. My point is, that I think for the 2008 Summer concert season in Milwaukee, we have been overlooked thus far, by very few artists. The following acts have either played in Milwaukee or will be playing here in 2008: Billy Joel, Michael Buble, Van Halen. Bruce Springsteen (2 times!), Tom Petty, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Rascal Flatts, Jonas Brother, Hannah Montana, Rush, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band, Jimmy Buffett, Stone Temple Pilots, Tim McGraw, The Police, Elvis Costello and Celine Dion. There are a lot of choices for your concert tickets in Milwaukee. It's nice. Choice.
For some of the smaller venues like the Milwaukee Theater, the Riverside Theater and the Pabst Theater some great acts are coming. Swell Season, Rilo Kiley to name a couple. We can usually count on the Marcus Amphitheater, Alpine Valley and the Bradley Center to come up with some good ones. Summerfest won't disappoint either.
I will have to say I am personally disappointed Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco are skipping right over Brew City. I also wish Radiohead could headline Lollapalooza and THEN come on over to East Troy, WI's Alpine Valley for a date.
