Big change at Summerfest

Have you heard about the HUGE stage that will be unveiled at Summerfest this year?

It's kind of like a second Marcus Amphitheatre.

The BMO Harris Pavillion will have room for up to 10,000 fans. It will feature about 5,000 seats covered by an overhang, similar to the current Marcus Amphitheater, as well as room for another 5,000 patrons in an uncovered, standing room only area.

If you want to get a good seat for any of the performances at that stage, you have to get them in advance.

The advance tickets, or Blue CIrcle passes,  are free if you get them at the Summerfest box office. You can also get them through Ticketmaster for a $3 "convenience fee" per ticket.  Your pass will be for a specific seat in the Blue Circle area.

* Blue Circle Passes for the following headlining Summerfest performances will be released as follows:
       

Steve Miller Band (June 27)     Monday, May 7
Ben Folds Five (June 28)     Tuesday, May 8
TBD (June 29)     Wednesday, May 9
Scorpions (June 30)     Thursday, May 10
Chicago (July 1)     Friday, May 11
Gavin Degraw (July 3)     Saturday, May 12
David Gray (July 4)     Monday, May 14

World's Worst iPod: Oliver "Jean"
The same guy who sang "Good Morning Starshine" had a number 2 hit with the song "Jean" in 1969. The song came from a movie called The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie about a headstrong teacher in a private school. The song really has nothing to do with any...

World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...
