Ed Sheeran Plays Summerfest 2015 July 3 | Ticket King Inc.

It’s understandable that Ed Sheeran is one of the hottest singers around right now. His music is easy to like. Sheeran is headlining Summerfest 2015 on July 3. Although he is quite young, he’s already found himself to be a multi platinum, award winning musician.  His first album, titled “+” came out in 2011. Since then, he’s written music for films, television, and pop stars such as One Direction, and more.  He’s since been nominated for over ninety music related awards, but the one that stands out the most is his 2015 Grammy nomination for the song “I See Fire.”

Sheeran trained his voice by singing in his church choir, and worked very hard at his craft during his high school years.  His first foray into the music business started out just like most others, when he released his work without a record label backing him up. In 2005, he put out an EP titled The Orange Room. Four years later, he released yet another EP, this one titled You Need Me. Two years later, Sheeran took a huge risk, and flew to Los Angeles to play on any stage that would have him.  He was discovered soon after, and was on his way to release a couple more independently produced disks, before signing to Asylum Records in 2012. 

Sheeran Releases “X” and Fans Go Wild

Sheeran has only released two full length albums so far. One is titled “+” and the other “x.” The “X” stands for “multiply.”  He’s currently backing up the “X” release by touring through 2015. See him on the Marcus Amphitheater in July!

Keith Urban Summerfest Tickets | Ticket King Inc.

Keith Urban Summerfest
Keith Urban comes to Summerfest 2015, on June 26. Tickets for his Summerfest show can be found here. Urban has been a force in country music since the late 1990's.  He "earned his stripes" by performing all across Australia, as a country music singer and song writer. He wasn't afraid to mix a bit of rock and roll into his music, and today, he can still "mix it up" with the best in the music industry. 

Keith Urban came to Nashville just a couple of years into his career.  The lure of that location was very strong, and Nashville took him in with open arms. By the year 2000, he had his first #1 hit song! It's titled "But For The Grace of God." He doubled his hit output with the very next album. Someone Like You and Who Wouldn't Want to Be Me, both hit the top of the charts in 2002.

Urban wasn't one to grab the "solo spotlight" just yet.  He enjoyed touring with other country stars like Kenny Chesney, and Brook & Dunn. Within five short years, he won the "Entertainer of the Year" award from the Country Music Association. By 2006, he found himself holding a Grammy, and giving an acceptance speech for "Best Male Vocalist of the Year." His latest tour starts in June and runs through most of September.  His stop at the Summerfest grounds will also include opening acts such as Phillip Philips.

Motley Crue Comes To Milwaukee in 2015 | Ticket King Inc.

Motley Crue tour tickets
It's been over a year since Motley Crue announced that this would be their last tour, ever.  The band has been on the road for months, and they return to Milwaukee in 2015. Crue fans laughed along with the band when they signed their crazy death pact. This tour and these shows will be the very last.

Motley Crue formed in 1981.  This L.A. based band has remained active throughout the decades, taking breaks here and there, but never calling it quits for good.  In their first few years, Nikki Sixx was working on and off with Tommy Lee.  Eventually, Vince Neil and Mick Mars joined in the effort, and Motley Crue was on their way.

Motley Crue 2015 Tour

The last leg of the very last Motley Crue tour will begin on July 22, in Eugene Oregon. The band will travel along the western states for the last ten days of July, then head to the Midwest in August. The Milwaukee show date is set for August 7, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.  The final show will be on December 31, 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is your last chance to see the band, and they mean it.

Dave Matthews Band Returns to Alpine Valley in 2015 | Ticket King Wisconsin

DMB Tickets Alpine Valley WI
Dave Matthews returns to Wisconsin for two nights in 2015. July 25 and July 26th are set for Alpine Valley,  East Troy Wisconsin.  Dave loves to play Alpine, and his fans certainly come out in big numbers. This tour will include some new music from an album that is due to come out this year. Tickets for the show can be found here.

As of November 2014, the band released a three disk set that covered their live show at the Green Theater in Berkeley, CA. This disk will also include a DVD. The disk will be made up of the best songs that were performed during the three show stint. This is not to be confused with the 2015 release.

Dave Matthews Tour Dates for 2015

The summer tour starts in May, with the band performing at the Austin360 Theater on May 13. At the time of this post, the band has booked eight shows for May 2015.  In June DMB starts performing in amphitheaters in the southern US, and then it’s off to the east coast.  The band will spend most of July on the road. The Wisconsin dates are preceded by a show in Quebec, with a concert at the MidFlorida Credit Union in Tampa just three days after the second Alpine Valley gig.  There may be more tour dates added to the 2015 tour, but it looks like the last show will take place on September 13, at the AK-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix.
