About Milwaukee Concerts
Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the Midwest. The city has been growing since the start of the 21st century and is an exciting place for music and culture. Live music fans are sure to find a range of options for concerts and festivals.
Riverside Theatre is a 2460-seat concert hall along the Milwaukee River. It opened in 1928 and has been renovated extensively since then. It’s known today as one of the most opulent theaters in the city, and has hosted artists like Aretha Franklin, The Avett Brothers, and CHVRCHES. Fans of the venue praise its acoustics, decor, and reasonably priced drink options. Milwaukee also has options for classical music: the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra performs at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.
Milwaukee is well-known as the home of Summerfest, which happens every year at Henry Maier Festival Park, along the lakefront. The first Summerfest was held in 1968, and the festival has been going strong ever since. Close to 900,000 people attend Summerfest every year. The festival features hundreds of acts and over a thousand performances, including an Emerging Artist Series. Festivities last for 11 days (beginning at the end of June and going into July), and the artists perform on 11 different stages. Some of Summerfest’s opening headliners over the years include Imagine Dragons, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi, Prince, Cher, and Britney Spears. The rest of the lineup is always full of great artists, too. Tom Petty, Def Leppard, Logic and Rise Against are among the many, many artists who have played on Summerfest’s stages.
American Family Field, home to Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers, also serves as a concert venue from time to time. The ballpark hosts one to two concerts in most years. Paul McCartney attracted 43,700 to a sold-out show at American Family Field in 2013, and other performers in the park’s history include Ed Sheeran, Kenny Chesney, and One Direction.
