Milwaukee Bucks Playoffs Nearly A Lock | Bradley Center Prepares for Crazed Fans

The Milwaukee Bucks are just a few games away from the playoff lock. As it's been four years since our Bucks have made it this far, we see that the Bradley Center fans are excited to have the chance to cheer on their team in the post season. For starters, they need to bury the Los Angeles Clippers tonight.

The Bradley Center tickets will be printed for home Milwaukee Bucks playoff games, as soon as the post season is set. For now, we wait for Milwaukee to win just a few more games. It seems that the Boston Celtics are waiting for the last few games to be played, and that will determine their playoff opponent. Nobody wants to play the Bucks in the first round.

Lady Gaga Bradley Center September 2nd Show

Announced a few weeks ago, Lady Gaga will be making an appearance at Milwaukee’s very own Bradley Center on September 2nd, on her Monster Ball Tour. On tour since fall of 2009, Gaga will be continuing through summer on a 31 date expedition that kicks off in Quebec, Canada on June 28. When the sensational singer did an interview with magazine Rolling Stone, she explained the first half of this tour as the first “pop-electro opera”, with a theatrical story element woven into the performance, full of wildly imaginative set and outfit changes. Lady Gaga will be singing hits from both albums, The Fame and its reissued follow-up The Fame Monster, respectively. The tour came about after her Fame Kills tour with rapper Kanye West was cancelled last Fall and since then, Gaga and her production team, the Haus of Gaga have created one of the most innovative and widely anticipated tours in the recent years.

At the beginning of 2010, Gaga decided to re-vamp the entire show and create an entirely new narrative, making the Monster Ball into more of a musical than an opera. 2009 was a huge year for Lady Gaga and her tour and Milwaukee fans are hoping that in 2010 she will serve up something hot for her upcoming shows. Can't wait to get my Bradley Center Tickets for Lady Gaga!!

NCAA Tournament in Milwaukee

This is going to be a busy weekend for the city with the weather finally starting to get nice and many visitors for the games. There are two games on Friday, an afternoon session and an evening session. The first session featured Pittsburgh v. Oakland and Xavier v. Minnesota. The second session will feature Ohio St. v. UC Santa Barbara and Oklahoma St. v. Georgia Tech. On Sunday, session three will see games from the best of sessions one and two.

Though fans would have loved to see a Wisconsin team, either UW-Madison Badgers or the Marquette University Golden Eagles play but this is still a big event for Milwaukeeans and Wisconsinites alike since the tournament has not been hosted in Milwaukee in six years. Many local bars and eateries near the Bradley Center and in the downtown area are graciously welcoming the basketball fans from near and far. Even if you can’t check out the games at the Bradley Center, bars like Major Goolsby’s, Center Court and Fanatics are great spots to watch the game with other fans and compare brackets and strategies!

Verge Festival on Summerfest Grounds June 4 and 5

This year, the Summerfest committee will be trying something new and have introduced “Verge”, a modern rock festival at the Henry Maier Festival Park which will be held on Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5. The name was chosen based on a public vote and the other two options were Diatonic and Parallel. Local senior art director at Kohl’s Department Store Katie Kostuck suggested the winning title.

The festival lineup was careful to include acts for all with a varied group of artists including indie folk outfit She & Him, Milwaukee hardcore rock band Red Knife Lottery and garage-style rockers Eagles of Death Metal to name a few. The headliner for Friday night will be Three Days Grace and Weezer and AFI are set to headline on Saturday. More bands will continue to be announced soon. Summerfest is urging fans to purchase tickets as soon as possible as supplies will be limited and if fans buy in advance, they receive a 1 day pass to Summerfest, running June 24 through July 4. This should be a great kick off to Milwaukee summer festivals and I am excited to check out this brand new event. Will you be going to the Verge Festival this year on the Summerfest grounds?

Brewers Opening Day Countdown

We have just over a month to go until opening day for the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park with a great matchup with the Brewers playing the Colorado Rockies. The game will be taking place on Monday April 5th at 1:00 PM, giving fans a chance to have a good morning tailgate. Who doesn’t love brats, burgers and beer for brunch? We are already seeing some warmer temperatures this month so hopefully this will only improve until the big day. I would love to get some great seats in the field infield box and see the Brew Crew get their season started! After catching what I’m sure will be an exciting home opener, I want to check out fan favorite leftfielder Ryan Braun’s brand new restaurant. The new eatery will be located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward and will be appropriately titled Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Restaurant and will open on none other than opening day. All in all, April 5th will be a great day for the Brew Crew and their fans alike. Official countdown starts now, just 32 more days to go...
