Elvis Costello at Summerfest 2012Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T-Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint.

Costello”s songs have been recorded by a great number of artists. The list of performers reflects his interest in a wide range of musical styles: George Jones, Chet Baker, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Robert Wyatt, Charles Brown, No Doubt, Solomon Burke, June Tabor, Howard Tate, the gospel vocal group The Fairfield Four and the viol consort Fretwork with the countertenor Michael Chance. In 2003, he began a songwriting partnership with his wife, the jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall, resulting in six songs included in her highly successful album The Girl In The Other Room.

During his career Costello has received several prestigious honors, including two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting, a Dutch Edison Award with The Brodsky Quartet for “The Juliet Letters”, the Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef Award, a BAFTA for the music written with Richard Harvey for Alan Bleasdale”s television drama series “G.B.H.” and a Grammy for ‘I Still Have That Other Girl’ from his 1998 collaboration with Burt Bacharach, Painted From Memory.

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.
