Packers Tickets for 2014 Playoffs On Sale Now | Ticket King Inc.

Packers Playoff Tickets
The Green Bay Packers are NFC North Champions for the fourth season in a row. If Green Bay makes it to the Super Bowl, one thing will certainly make the "highlight" reel. The image of Aaron Rodgers heading back to the sidelines after going down just before the half this past Sunday.  Packers playoff tickets for the the game at Lambeau are available now. Kickoff is set for January 11, at Green Bay.

Aaron was nursing an injured calf, before heading into the game against the Lions. He was listed as "probable" earlier in the week, and most fans knew he would give it a go. What surprised most fans was the fact that he further injured that same calf while scrambling to his right.  Nothing spectacular, just a run to avoid the oncoming rush. He hobbled twice, and flipped the ball to Randall Cobb for a touchdown. The stadium went silent when he didn't get up.  Slowly, a chant rose from the crowd "MVP! MVP!" It was certainly a moment for the football ages. Now, the Packers will get to take next week off, since Green Bay defeated the Lions once again. 

Shu Adds Insult To Rodgers' Injury Late In The Game

Finally, fans across the country witnessed Ndamukong Suh "accidentally" step on Rodgers' bad calf.  The game was almost in the bag for Green Bay when Suh stepped backwards onto Rogers leg with one foot, then another, then pushed off. If you watch the reply from the other side of the field, you can see that T.J. Lang was actually pulling Suh forward, but he still found the need to take a second step back, after certainly knowing that he was stepping on a player.  The second step wasn't so bad, until one notices that Suh seems to push off and put his full weight on the second step.  This is not the reaction of someone who finds themselves unintentionally stepping on a player.  Also, after years of playing in high school, college, and the pros, a top notch defensive player knows how to stay off another player's legs, hands, or feet. Either way, the Packers are on their way, and the rest is history.

A Somewhat Humorous Dive Into The Upcoming NCAA Football Bowl Games



2014 Bowl GamesIt’s time to take a look at the notable bowl games prior to New Year’s Eve. This week, lets take a look at the “really big” NCAA Football bowl games outside of the playoffs.  For this job, we decided to ask our favorite sports guru Tim Bryce to describe each game in a few short sentences. 

Peach Bowl, Mississippi vs. TCU - Earlier this season, Mississippi was the second ranked team in the country and two weeks ago it appeared as if TCU was going to back door their way into the playoffs. But Mississippi stumbled to the f
inish line this season and the playoff selection committee chose Ohio State over TCU. TCU’s defense is insane and that will be the difference in this game. TCU will be able to find touchdowns while Mississippi doesn’t. TCU wins by a few scores.

Fiesta Bowl, Boise State vs Arizona - It used to be a huge deal when a mid-major like Boise State made the Fiesta Bowl. Now it is not so big of a deal with the disappearance of the BCS. If the BCS were still in play, neither team would be in this game. But this is the match up we have, and Boise State should win what will be a good game.

Orange Bowl, Mississippi State vs. Georgia Tech - Oh my, Mississippi State is going to wonder for the rest of all eternity what could have been in 2014. The Bulldogs were once the number one ranked team in America and were all but in the playoffs. But two losses to finish the season leaves them in the Orange Bowl against a very underrated Georgia Tech team. If the Bulldogs are not careful, this could be a loss, and I think it will.

Outback Bowl, Auburn vs. Wisconsin - For Outback Bowl tickets, check our inventory here. The old 19 vs. 18 match up features the horrible defense of Auburn versus the inept quarterback play of Bucky Badger. This game features two teams who had good seasons, but were nowhere near the playoffs from the start. This is going to be a high scoring game featuring about eight million rushing yards.

Cotton Bowl, Michigan vs. Baylor - This game is basically Baylor’s unstoppable offense vs. Michigan State’s brick wall of a defense. Whoever wins that war of attrition wins this game.

Linkin Park Summerfest 2015 Tickets | Ticket King Milwaukee



Linkin Park Summerfest 2015
Linkin Park comes to Summerfest 2015 on June 30. This “rap rock” band has been going strong for eighteen years. Although the band has produces just six albums in that time, their following is strong. The band is made up of your basic “guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, but their twist is having Joe Hahn backing that up with turntables and samples. Linkin Park Summerfest tickets are on sale today. Opening for Linkin Park will be A Day To Remember.  

Judging by the number of views of their song “Numb”, it’s safe to say that it’s one of their biggest songs, from their most popular album, Meteora. 20 million in sales to date, pretty much puts this disk at the top.  It’s been eleven years since that album came out, and while it has its place in the museum of “Alternative” music, the band has certainly evolved. A taste of their more up to date sound can be found on the album titled Living Things. The song “Lost in the Echo” is a fantastic example of a cleaner song, but something that still relies upon that tried and tested rap feel.

In 2014, the band released The Hunting Party. Linkin Park produced the album on their own, and sent Rick Rubin (the famous record producer,) packing before the project began. The album will surely hit “platinum” status. Upon its release, number of units sold was peaking at 149,000 copies after week number two. At the time of this post, the record has sold nearly one million copies worldwide.  The album is much more about the “rock” side of things, but with rap styling on the vocal end.

Kenny Chesney Plays Lambeau Field In 2015 | Ticket King Wisconsin



Kenny Chesney Lambeau Field Tickets
Lambeau Field will host its second concert ever in 2015. Kenny Chesney will return to the Green Bay venue on June 20, 2015, along with Jason Aldean, amidst a summer stadium tour. Chesney is the only act to have played Lambeau Field since its groundbreaking nearly 50 years ago, performing in 2011 in front of a sellout crowd. Despite rave reviews of that 2011 concert and calls to host more live music, ongoing construction over the past three years has forced officials at Lambeau to put a hiatus on events other than football until now.

Chesney's The Big Revival Tour and Aldean's Burn It Down Tour are scheduled to coincide for 10 shows at football stadiums across the country. Starting on May 2 in San Francisco and ending in Boston on August 28, the duo's show at Lambeau will be third on the slate.

The show, expected to last a whopping six hours, will feature a number of other special guests, including Brantley Gilbert and Cole Swindle. Tailgating in the Lambeau Field parking lot will begin at 1PM and the show gets underway at 5PM.

Both Chesney and Aldean are coming off of major Billboard hit releases. Chesney's album of the same name as his tour managed to top the charts in October with nearly 150,000 copies sold in its' first week.  Aldean, meanwhile, will highlight songs from his wildly successful latest album “Old Boots, New Dirt”.

Florida Georgia Line Summerfest 2015 Tickets | Ticket King Wisconsin

Summerfest Florida Georgia Line Tickets
Summerfest 2015 has one headline date set.  It will be Florida Georgia Line at the Marcus Amphitheater on June 24. Opening for the band will be Frankie Ballard and Thomas Rhett. How does a "side stage" band make it as a headliner in just two short years?  They make a hit song that gets played over and over again. Florida Georgia Line is one of the many "Bro Country" acts that have popped up like weeds in the past few years. They are sure to play their hit song "Cruise" along with pretty much all of their two other albums. Since they are so new to the country music scene, they have a very small catalog of songs to choose from.

Florida Georgia Line started with a six song EP that was released without a major label. The band released a second EB with the help of  Big Mountain Records. That's where fans first found the song Cruise.  It was also added to their first full length album which came out in 2012. For six months, the disk was topping the charts and bringing in new fans by the thousands.  Their new CD, titled Anything Goes has been released just weeks ago, and it looks like the video "Sun Daze" will be hitting one million views in very short order.

The Who Milwaukee Tickets | Ticket King Wisconsin

The Who will be coming to Milwaukee in 2015. The band is celebrating their 50th year, buy hitting the road for a massive tour. This current tour will feature Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Backing up Townshend is his son Simon. On drums, Zak Starky (Ringo Starr’s son,) will represent the “Moon-less” line up. On bass, Pino Palladino takes the place of John Entwistle. It’s an interesting mix of musicians, to be sure. The Who Milwaukee tickets can be found here.


The remaining members are calling this tour “The beginning of a long goodbye.” You may never get the chance to see them perform live again, so why not join a few thousand other fans. The band has lost a few “friends along the way”, but that shouldn’t stop the two surviving members from celebrating with a long road trip. The BMO Harris Bradley Center will be filled to the rafters with Who fans on October 13, 2015. Ticket King can help you find the perfect seats for the show!

BMO Harris Concert Listing 2014 - 2015 | Ticket King Milwaukee



BMO Harris Bradley Center Concerts
The BMO Harris Bradley Center announced a slew of big name concerts over the past weeks. The home of the Milwaukee Bucks finished revealing the majority of their fall and winter concert line up this weekend, featuring the likes of Pearl Jam, James Taylor, Hunter Hayes, Fleetwood Mac and many others. The praise -worthy line-up comes in the midst of discussions to replace the aging venue as the Milwaukee Bucks home court as well as the premier entertainment complex in the city. In a release by Steve Costello, the building's president, he admitted that the high-profile slate is an attempt to keep the Bradley Center going strong for the time being, mentioning also the success of the Milwaukee Admirals hockey team, who host their home games at the site.

The effort may be futile, as the NBA has demanded that the Bucks play in a more contemporary stadium by 2017 or face a buy-back option from the league. But, boy, what an effort. In addition to the acts already mentioned, Cirque du Soleil's Varekai, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Ariana Grande, Neil Diamond, and the Who will all come to the downtown venue in the next year. A pair of non-concert events are also planned; Sesame Street Live and Monster Jam 2015.

Milwaukee Wave 2014 Schedule | Ticket King Wisconsin



Milwaukee Wave 2014 Game Schedule
The Milwaukee Wave announced their 2014-15 regular season schedule earlier this week. The longest running professional indoor soccer franchise in the country, the Wave revealed that they will kick-off their thirtieth season in St. Louis on November 8 against the Ambush. The team's first game of the year at the now-named UW-Milwaukee Panthers Arena won't come until a month later, as they host the Ambush in Milwaukee on December 6.

Along with three decades together, the 2014-15 season also marks the Wave's debut year in the newly formed Major Arena Soccer League. The MASL represents a merging of the former Major Indoor Soccer League and Premier Arena Soccer League, creating the single largest professional indoor soccer league in the Americas, comprising over 20 teams from the United States and Mexico. Familiar foes from the Wave's past in their new league include rivals Baltimore Blast and last year's MISL champions Missouri Comets.

First year head coach Giuliano Oliviero told reporters during the announcement that he is excited to lead the Wave into their inaugural year as part of the MASL. He added that a number of veteran players from last season's playoff team would be returning in 2014, as well as a couple of new faces, including former head coach Keith Tozer's son Alex Tozer.
