Neil Young Summerfest 2015 Tickets and Information | Ticket King Inc.

Neil Young Summerfest tickets
Neil Young is coming to Summerfest 2015 on July 5. He'll be backed by Promise Of The Real, a band that is quite a bit younger than Young. Where did Neil find this back up band? Considering that two of Willie Nelson's sons are in the band might point us to where he found them. Summerfest 2015 is the first stop on the "Rebel Content" tour!

The tour is made up of just twelve dates, with it all starting in Milwaukee. The tour ends on July 24 at the WayHome Music and Art Festival in Ontario.  Young will also be playing dates in Morrison, Clarkston, Camden, Wantach, and Mansfield.

Neil Young never stopped making music.  He just stopped playing live shows from time to time.  He enjoys his peace and quiet, preferring to stay on his "ranch" most of the time.  He's put out over forty albums, dating back to the late 1960's. Coming out this May will be "A Letter Home."

Stevie Wonder Summerfest June 27 Tickets | Ticket King Inc.

Stevie Wonder Tickets
Stevie Wonder will be on tour in 2015, and playing his entire “Songs In The Key Of Life” album.
Wonder’s tour will include dates in April, and then more dates this summer. The Summerfest show date is set for June 27. Tickets for the Summerfest show are on sale as of this Saturday.

As most fans know, Stevie Wonder was a child prodigy, signed by Motown Records in the early 1960’s. That’s how he got the label “Little Stevie Wonder.” At that age, he needed help with songwriting, and production. He produced Tribute to Uncle Ray and The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie.   During his early teen years, he struggled with a voice that was changing. He also spent some time working in the background for Motown, writing songs for other artists. 

In 1968, Wonder’s popularity started to skyrocket. His co writer, Henry Cosby wrote songs such as My Cherie Amor, one song that became a hit when he reached the age of 20. In 1972, Stevie Wonder wrote “Superstition.” That song put Wonder back on the map.  Four years later, Songs in the Key of Life was released.  It was a massive effort on behalf of Wonder, and it was his crowning achievement. That double album will be the theme of the Summerfest show in June.
