Kendrick Lamar Plays Summerfest 2015 | Ticket King Inc.

Summerfest announced another headline show for 2015. It will be Kendrick Lamar at the Marcus Amphitheater on July 1. Lamar released his third album just this past week.  It's titled "To Pimp a Butterfly." Kendrick won two Grammy's this past February, and has firmly established himself as one of the best rappers in the country. His style comes off as cool, calm, and focused.  Don't let that style fool you, Lamar himself claims that he's out to be the best.  So far, most people who see him perform agree with that notion. Opening for Lamar will be "SchoolboyQ."

From the start of his career, Kendrick Lamar had a focus. He felt that the current state of rap music was not good.  He felt that the most popular rappers had gone soft. Lamar wanted to get back to what he felt was the best part of rap, the crafting of words into amazing lines. He takes no prisoners when it comes to competing with other rappers.  It got so bad for those he went up against, that they soon left Lamar to work on his own. Nobody could compete at his level.  Soon enough, he was signed to a record label, TDE to be exact. That was when Lamar worked under the name of K-Dot.

In 2012, Lamar released "good kid, m.A.A.d city." Top Dawg entertainment pulled Lamar out of "indie label" obscurity, and Lamar was looking at a top 20 song on the rap charts by August of 2012.  In just six short months since the release, Lamar's album went gold.  Summerfest is happy to have Kendrick Lamar as one of their headline acts in 2015.

Zac Brown Comes To Summerfest in 2015 | Ticket King Concert Update

Summerfest officials announced that the Zac Brown Band will return in 2015. The date is set for June 28, and Brown will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on that date. This is the second time that ZBB will headline at the "World's Biggest Music Festival." Zac Brown tickets are on sale now.  As of this date, there is no opening act. We'll be sure to update our blog, once we know who will be supporting the band on the road.

Zac Brown is set to release his fourth studio album this year.  It's titled "Jekyll + Hyde."  Fans will have to wait until late April to purchase their copy, but the track listing has been posted on various sites on the web.  Brown gave his fans a taste of the new music, when he performed some of the songs during an NCAA football pre game, and on Saturday Night Live just this past weekend.

Packers Re-Sign Cobb | NFL Free Agent Moves 2015

NFL Free Agency
Ticket King thought it might be nice to have our favorite sports writer take a moment to comment on one of pro football's craziest times of the year. Free agent signings are in full swing.  Here is "Tim's take" on some of the highlights.

Well, it's that strange time of the year in pro football. It's the "NFL free agency" period, also known as a time in which teams throw money around like drunken sailors with no regard for common sense. The Packers made some headlines recently when they re-signed Randall Cobb to a four year, 40 million dollar contract. Apparently Cobb had more offers on the table but took less money to stay in Green Bay. So with information, we won't call that a crazy move by either the Packers nor Randall Cobb.  Let's take a look at some other notable free agents and my prediction for their landing destinations.

Andre Johnson- The Texans released longtime fan favorite Andre Johnson. Even though he is old, he may still have something left in the tank. I believe he ends up in New England.

Reggie Wayne- The Colts decided recently to let the last piece from the Peyton Manning era, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, go, after 14 seasons. It is very likely Wayne elects to retire as he is coming off a major injury.

Brian Bulaga- This year’s market for offensive lineman is thin. Still, I expect Bulaga back in Green Bay.

Jeremy Maclin- This is another wide receiver who is an unrestricted free agent. He fits Chip Kelly’s system well. He returns to the Eagles.

Torrey Smith- The Ravens elected not to re-sign Torrey Smith, who was an integral part of their recent Super bowl run. Smith is a younger player who could sign a long term contract with the Colts, and develop a relationship with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

Julius Thomas- The Broncos elected not to re-sign one of Peyton Manning’s favorite targets. Thomas is likely headed to Jacksonville.

Bruce Carter- The Cowboys defense needs work. Still, he wasn’t the problem, and a return to Dallas is likely.

Darrell Revis- The Vikings need cornerbacks bad, and if they don’t add another one, they are going to continue to lose divisional games to the Lions and Packers. Revis ends up in Minnesota.
