BMO Harris Summerfest dates fill up fast with Cheap Trick, Lauren Daigle
Two more artists claimed places at Summerfest’s BMO Harris Pavilion table Monday morning, with the festival announcing rock icons Cheap Trick and contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Lauren Daigle. That leaves three open slots for the pavilion, the complete schedule for which you can find below.
The boys from Cheap Trick have been at it for a half-century now, forming in 1973 and releasing their debut album four years later. The band had one of the more fascinating breakouts thanks to Cheap Trick at Budokan, the live album recorded in Japan that launched them to international fame in 1978. They followed it up with their highest-charting studio album, Dream Police, and steadily built a career that landed them in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2016.
Daigle doesn’t quite have the longevity of her fellow BMO Harris’ers, but she’s made a sizable impact in a relatively short amount of time. Both of her studio albums cracked the Billboard 200's top 30, including a No. 3 spot for 2018 sophomore effort Look Up Child. That LP earned Daigle both of her Grammy awards for best contemporary Christian music album and performance/song (“You Say”).
Tickets for Cheap Trick’s June 22 show and Daigle’s July 6 appearance both go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. this Friday, March 10. You can pick them up online via Ticketmaster or at the Summerfest box office.
