Usher, the latest addition to the 2010 Summerfest Milwaukee Lineup, will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on June 30th. Yeah! Yeah! YEAH! Riding the coattails of his latest album, Raymond vs. Raymond, Usher will be certain to raise the roof at the Marcus Amphitheater with his dazzling vocals. Raymond vs. Raymond features stellar collaborations with artists such as Ludacris and Will.I.Am. If I had it my way, one of them will make a guest appearance at his show!

Rush Summerfest tickets will be on sale this weekend. This is tour is in support of their classic album Moving Pictures. Rush performed in Milwaukee two years ago, at the same venue.
Rush news includes the fact that they are working on a new album. As of this post, they are around six songs into the writing phase. Neil Peart confirmed that five songs were completed, so it's safe to say that they are well on their way to new material. That means the tour will most likely focus on older works. The tour starts in late June, and ends in early October.

I hope that the Cascio Groove Garage is booking shows at Summerfest. For some reason, I really like that little set up. Perhaps it's the way it is tucked in between two buildings. There are actually a few trees to the left and right of the stage. It has that local talent too. Decapitado played there last summer. That was a great gig.
The Groove Garage used to be next to the food court. That was not a great location. There was traffic passing by. This traffic was headed to the Marcus Amphitheater, or looking for a place to grab a bite, and take a time out from the music. Now, the stage is just south of center.
Headliners for Summerfest are not entirely booked. I think that we will be hearing from the powers that be in the very near future. Summer is coming, and the headline acts will be locked in soon.
