Summerfest Headline Act for 2012 Already Announced

The first Summerfest headline act for 2012 was announced today. It will be none other than Lady Antebellum. The band will take a break from touring in January, then it's full on all the way through spring and summer. Thompson Square and Darius Rucker will be the openers for this show.

Halloween Themed Contest for Lady Antebellum Fans

Since this is more topical, the band is hosting a photo contest. Send them your best "themed Halloween" ideas, and you may win a prize. There is still time to get your entry in. In the meantime, you don't have to wait until June to see the band. They play in LaCrosse Wisconsin this December. I would give you the date of that show, but their website is so slow, I just didn't care to wait five minutes for the page to load.

Cheap Trick at Potawatomi Casino for Second Run in 2011

Cheap Trick Milwaukee

Due to overwhelming demand, Cheap Trick has come back to the Potawatomi casino in Milwaukee. They play for just a couple of weeks, and only on weekends, but it may be worth the time and trouble to check them out. The venue is one of the coziest in Milwaukee, so you feel like you are right on stage. The only member to miss this run is Bun E. Carlos, their drummer.

Dream Police Album to be Focus of Show

The entire album titled Dream Police will be performed at the event, and that's sure to please the die hard fans. Rest assured, there will be other songs on the set list. It's hard to believe that the album came out over thirty years ago.

Brewers Move on to NLCS

Brewers playoff tickets

Nyjer Morgan was the hero tonight, as the Brewers will play in the NLCS. At the time of this writing, we have yet to see who they will face, but there will be at least two games at Miller Park.

Brewers Move on to the NLCS

The Diamondbacks fought back to tie it in the ninth, but the Brewers fought back and won it all in the tenth inning with a one out hit by Nyjer Morgan. The Miller Park crowd erupted, as Carlos Gomez slid head first into home, and the celebration was on. Will those Brewers playoff tickets be in demand? You bet. Congratulations to Milwaukee and their huge win.
