Eagles bring ‘History of the Eagles Tour’ to Summerfest

What started as short-run summer tour with a handful of dates has now expanded into months reaching deep into fall for the Eagles, supporting not a new album, but their freshly released documentary ‘History of The Eagles’. The documentary chronicling the band from start to, well, not the end yet, came as good news to Eagles fans […]

311 welcomed back, Milwaukee

There seemed to be a fair amount of bitterness as this year’s Summerfest lineup was announced. Frequent attendees of the fest were complaining about the noticeably repetitive lineup compared to previous years and also the lack of some acts that other festivals of the caliber were booking. Sure, to an extent there was some overlap, but with bands […]

Skillet brings Billboard No. 4 album to Milwaukee

If it’s one thing I hear the most about a Skillet show at Summerfest, it’s “are they bringing the pyro?” The Tennessee rock natives known for their dynamic rock anthems and blistering choruses are no new act to Wisconsin, or even Summerfest. This marks their second consecutive year.

Timeflies, Umphrey’s McGee, & Empire of the Sun host massive crowds, Summerfest

There isn’t a band or music act that doesn’t enjoy playing at Summerfest – or even Milwaukee for that matter. There’s just something about Wisconsin that they just love. Maybe it’s because of the record turnout numbers, or how nearly anyone in their late teens and early twenties parties as if it’s a commodity and […]

New Kids on the Block make a powerful return to Milwaukee

After the nostalgia of their comeback tour, you’d think that New Kids on the Block wouldn’t have it in them for another go round as big as their last. All too often after a reboot and highly acclaimed tour, acts tend to fall off the radar falling into the trap of performing for smaller and […]

Social Distortion help top first week of Summerfest

Finally some decent rock at Summerfest. If it’s not the usual washed up 90’s act with one or two hit songs it’s something electronic or along the lines of classic 80s rock. There’s really no decent alternative, soft rock, or punk rock to be found. But this year, that’s changed with Social Distortion’s killer show […]

Alice Cooper turns heads in Milwaukee, Summerfest

Summerfest has been on a role with their classic rock acts. Some have been around, some are new to Milwaukee, but one thing is for certain, they’re doing very well at the massive music festival spanning  two weekends. Attendance can be difficult to keep up at the end of a weekend, but Alice Cooper sure did help […]

Milwaukee’s Summerfest heats up with LL Cool J

When you’re not busy as one of the lead actors in a hit TV show, you do what LL Cool J does – go on a tour sprawling North America and abroad in support of a new album. And if that weren’t enough, maybe mix in the “Kings of the Mic” tour with other long […]

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers start the weekend with a bang

This must be the year of the world’s hottest artists circling their way back to Milwaukee for Summerfest. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are no newcomers to the medium sized Brew City tucked neatly up the west side of Lake Michigan, known primarily for beer, cheese, and best of all, music.

Billy Idol rakes in a full house, Summerfest

There was no missing the stern classic rock Englishman atop stage monitors towering over a pavilion filled shoulder to shoulder.
