Two more Summerfest headline acts have been booked for 2016. Selena Gomez comes to Milwaukee on June 29, and Sting with Peter Gabriel will co-headline on July 10. Summerfest tickets for both shows have already gone on sale.
Who is Selena Gomez? If you have to ask, you are probably over the age of 25. Gomez make her mark when appearing on the show "Barney and Friends." From there, Disney picked her up and placed her on the show "Wizards of Waverly Place." She spent five years on that program, before deciding to try her hand at being a musician. Hollywood Records was thrilled to take a shot on this unknown (musically) talent. After all, they could bring in multiple producers and image makers to get her on the right track. That's just what they did with the release of Kiss and Tell. She's also made A Year Without Rain in 2010 and When the Sun Goes Down in 2011.
Peter Gabriel and Sting Headline Summerfest on July 10

Gabriel came out with his first album in 1977. He's made nine solo albums in total, along with a few soundtracks. He also has four live albums to his name. Sting has released eleven studio albums and six live disks. Sting's latest effort came to be in 2013. The album is titled "The Last Ship" and it came out in 2013.
