Milwaukee Summerfest, Wisconsin 2012MAIDEN ON THE CHARGE – IRON MAIDEN TO HEADLINE SUMMERFEST 2012

Milwaukee Summerfest organizers are excited to announce the fifth major performer slated for Summerfest 2012. Metal Legends, Iron Maiden will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on Wednesday, July 4th along with Very Special Guest Alice Cooper.

Following the massively successful Final Frontier World Tour 2010-11, IRON MAIDEN are back on the road this summer with a series of Arena, Amphitheatre and Festival shows in the U.S.A. and Canada, to be followed by further dates around the World in 2013. The MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR will closely mirror, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour”. This opening section of the World Tour is the band’s most extensive visit to North America for many years.

MAIDEN ENGLAND marks the third chapter in the History of Iron Maiden, a journey which began in 2004 with The Early Days DVD and subsequent 2005 Early Days Tour. Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD – the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Long Beach Arena (L.A) during the World Slavery Tour – and the band embarking on their ground-breaking Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.

Iron Maiden are delighted to announce that the extraordinary and legendary Alice Cooper will be their very special guest on Wednesday, July 4th. With a music career that started over 40 years ago and his 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, Alice Cooper just keeps on going and going and going. Always current and in the forefront of entertainment, his most recent album, 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare, which debuted at #22 on Billboard’s Top 200, is a testament to Cooper’s ability to incorporate various collaborations – including global pop superstar Ke$ha – into his own unique musical style.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 3rd at 10:00 am and include Summerfest admission.

Pride Fest MilwaukeeSALT N PEPA JOIN MILWAUKEE PRIDE FEST HEADLINERS!

They were the first all-female rap crew. They had the first rap song to be nominated for a Grammy. As one of the first rap groups to cross over into pop mainstream, they helped to lay the groundwork for the music’s widespread acceptance in the early 1990’s. They paved the way for the likes of TLC, En Vogue, and others.

This June 11th, They also will become the first rap group to perform as headliners at PrideFest.

Cheryl James and Sandy Denton, otherwise known as Salt-N-Pepa not only were “firsts”, they were pioneers who showed the industry that women were more than just window dressing or a gimmick. In the process, they sold over 15 million albums and singles worldwide, won a Grammy Award, and had six of their singles certified either platinum or gold!
Emerging in the late 1980s with “Show Stopper,” with producer Hurby “Luvbug” Azor, Salt-N-Pepa established a standard with their string of hits, including “Push It,” “Shake Your Thang,” “Shoop,” and “Whatta Man,” as well as their socially responsible mega hit, “Let’s Talk About Sex,” which catapulted them to the forefront of the national discussion about safe sex and AIDS. Having just recently come off the Hip Hop Legends tour, Salt-N-Pepa will be debuting their full headline show at PrideFest.

Salt-n-Pepa will perform at PrideFest on Saturday, June 11 on the Miller Lite Mainstage
