Lady Gaga THIS WEEK at Bradley Center

Lady Gaga Bradley Center Milwaukee
I can't believe how quickly this summer came and went but I can't wait to kick off fall with a bang at the Lady Gaga Bradley Center concert this week. Though lately there have been no juicy new stories about the pop princess, I cannot wait to see her perform in Milwaukee. From all the concert footage and photos I've seen of her on the web, her live show is full of immaculate costumes and intense stage designs. I am so glad that I got my tickets right away for the show and all I could think about all summer was rocking out on the dancefloor to great hits like "Bad Romance" and "Paparazzi". I hope that she plays her new song that she debuted in Minneapolis this week called "Living On The Radio". This might be the best show of the season at the Bradley Center. Can't wait to "Just Dance" on Thursday September 2 with Lady Gaga!

WWE Smackdown Comes to Milwaukee October 26

WWE Smackdown Milwaukee Bradley Center
October is a good month – the coolness of fall in the air, the holidays right around the corner and last but not least – I get to use my WWE Smackdown at the Bradley Center tickets! This will be my first time seeing WWE Smackdown live but I have been following on TV for the last 12 seasons. It’s totally addicting! The event will be taking place on Tuesday, October 26 at 6:30 PM. This will be the last date on a live WWE Tour across the USA this fall. How could a real wrestling fan miss out on this chance to see the best show in entertainment today? I wish WWE Raw was coming but I hear WWE Smackdown is also an exciting and unmissable show.The tickets go on sale Saturday August 28 and I will be one of the first in line at the Bradley Center to pick up a pair of ringside seats!

Irish Fest Milwaukee Celebrates its 30th Season with Discounted Admission Options

This Saturday I will head to Henry Maier Festival Park to check out Milwaukee's Irish Fest for the first time ever. I have been to many of the ethnic festivals, but not this one. I'm not planning on making it down to see any specific performer, or event. I'm just going to soak it in. Admission is $15, but there there are ways to get into Irish Fest on the cheap.

How do you get into Irish Fest at a discount?

  • Donate 10 Irish related items to the J. Ward music archives.
  • Bring a donation of school supplies on Thursday
  • Provide a food donation before the 9:30am mass on Sunday and you get in for free
  • Students receive a discounted admission on Sunday

Summer is winding down, but the fun continues on the Summerfest grounds.

NBA Milwaukee Bucks Schedule Released

Milwaukee Bucks 2010 schedule
The moment the loyal fans have been waiting for since April 30 - the release of the 2010-2011 Milwaukee Bucks schedule. The season will commence October 27 at New Orleans and the Milwaukee Bucks first home game will take place on October 30 against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Bucks picked up the fan tested, marketer approved slogan “Fear the Deer” with their great 2009-2010 season, finishing with a record of 39-42. With the recent success of the team, the NBA is matching them with a tougher season to see if the Bucks really have what it takes to be real “ballers”. Some highlight games this season:

  • November 3 game in Boston against the Celtics, which will be their first of four ESPN televised games this season
  • December 6 game at the Bradley Center against the Miami Heat with the trifecta of power players, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, Lebron James
  • November 16 game at home against the Los Angeles Lakers, 2010 NBA Finals Champions

Maybe we’ll get lucky and see Laker Lamar Odom’s wife Khloe Kardashian at this game? Probably not. Either way, I’m looking forward to a great Bucks basketball season this fall.
