This will be one of the biggest Februaries for Milwaukee concerts ever
On this week's episode, we're previewing Milwaukee's February concert calendar, which is surprisingly stacked. Despite the ongoing Omicron surge (which has already cancelled or postponed several February shows, and will likely lead to the cancellation of at least a few more), many venues are bringing in some of their biggest and most notable shows since the start of the pandemic.
In fact, Piet says, this is the most stacked February lineup he's seen since he started reporting on Milwaukee music more than a decade ago.
Among the shows on our radar this month:
Tyler, The Creator @ Fiserv Forum, Feb. 24
Dua Lipa @ Fiserv Forum, Feb. 23
Low @ Cactus Club, Feb. 17
Lucy Dacus @ Turner Hall Ballroom, Feb. 14
The War on Drugs @ The Riverside Theater, Feb. 12 and 13
Beach House @ The Riverside Theater, Feb. 27
Slash @ The Riverside Theater, Feb. 28
Black Violin @ Marcus Center, Feb. 3
Chai @ Cactus Club, Feb. 5
Joshua Ray Walker @ Shank Hall, Feb. 5
Devotchka @ The Back Room at Colectivo, Feb. 10
Ghost and Volbeat @ Fiserv Forum, Feb. 20
Ian Sweet @ The Back Room at Colectivo, Feb. 16
Ashley McBryde @ The Pabst Theater, Feb. 25
Imagine Dragons @ Fiserv Forum, Feb. 25
Even if some of those shows get cancelled, that still adds up to one undeniable month for the city. Hear us discuss which of these shows we're most excited about on this week's episode below.
