Time for another Summerfest preview! Summerfest is only 6 days away and I am getting so excited to eat eggplant strips and listen to some of my favorite bands play. Let’s take another look at more of the Summerfest 2011 Marcus Amphitheater headliners:
- Kid Rock w/ Sheryl Crow–July 3rd
Diehard Kid Rock fans are already talking about how great this concert is going to be. I’ve heard from fans that Kid Rock puts on a rockin’ show. I have no doubt in my mind that this will be a high energy show. Get ready to rock and be rocked! Kid Rock’s Summerfest stop is a part of his Born Free tour. Added bonus: Sheryl Crow is the opener. Sheryl Crow has long been a Summerfest staple so it will be great to see her on the main stage. You can buy your Kid Rock Summerfest tickets here.
- Def Leppard w/ Heart–July 5th
’80s rock fans needn’t look any further than this show to get their ’80s hair rock fix. Def Leppard and special guest Heart will rock the Marcus Amphitheater the day after the 4th of July. Def Leppard has been around since the 1970s, but they just released a live album featuring some of their greatest hits. Originally from Britain, Def Leppard is only one of five bands to sell over 10 million copies of both of their original studio albums. Def Leppard w/ Heart tickets can be found here.
- Black Keys–July 6th
These blues rockers from Ohio formed in 2001 and have already sold over 1.7 million records. Their album, Brothers, released in 2010 was listed #2 on the Billboard’s Best Albums of 2010 list. Currently, the pair is working on their 7th studio album. The Black Keys also performed at this year’s Bonaroo festival. Florence & the Machine will be opening for the Black Keys. Florence & the Machine generated a lot of buzz after performing live during the Oscars earlier this year. Black Keys tickets can be purchased here.
- Katy Perry–July 7th
Bubblegum pop star Katy Perry will grace us with her vibrant presence on the second Thursday evening of Summerfest. This show promises to be high energy and full of #1 hits. Katy Perry has turned a lot of heads with her powerful vocals, fun lyrics, and very catchy tunes. Do you think she’ll roller skate on the stage during “California Girls?” There’s only one way to find out–go to the show! You can get Katy Perry tickets here.
Stay tuned for another Summerfest concert preview tomorrow!
