This could be a big summer for concerts at American Family Field
This is a frustrating time for baseball fans. Spring training was supposed to have started last week, but due to MLB's ongoing player lockout, this year's whole baseball season could be in jeopardy. There's still time for both sides to work out an agreement, and here's hoping they do soon.
But even if they don't, we can count on at least a few events happening at American Family Field this summer. As Piet notes, it's already been a busy year for concert announcements at the stadium. On July 17, it'll host the Def Leppard and Motley Crue tour with Poison and Joan Jett. And in May it'll host two concerts from country superstars Eric Church and Kenny Chesney.
That's just three concerts, so it might not sound like much, but that's actually a historically full schedule for the ballpark. This will be the first time a Milwaukee baseball stadium has hosted two concerts in the same month since June 1975, when The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd both played County Stadium.
Does that mean more concert announcements could be on the way for the ballpark? It's possible, Piet says, especially given how the concert industry has been going all in on outdoor shows. We talk about the likelihood of Paul McCartney swinging back through down for another concert at the stadium. It could happen, right? (Well, maybe, Piet explains).
