Carrie Underwood was the last act to play the Marcus Amphitheater this season. Prior to that, Rush, Santana, Tom Petty, Justin Bieber, ZZ Top, and Usher all walked the same stage. Was Summerfest 2010 one of the best? I say yes.
I think that Tom Petty's Saturday night performance was one for the books. The fog rolled in just after ZZ Top left the stage. It cooled down just in time for Petty to perform. The wind rolled through the Marcus Amphitheater in a way that made the night special.
I took another trip down to Summerfest on July 4, to see DEVO. They were truly inspiring. Anyone that old and still pumping out new wave should be given props. Those DEVO "boys" are not getting any younger. We'll see what Summerfest 2011 brings, but that's not going to start until spring.
