The Fray and Chicago have been announced as the latest Summerfest headliners.

The Fray, a Denver piano-rock band that conquered the charts when their single How to Save a Life became the unofficial theme to Greys Anatomy, will affirm their popularity with a Saturday, July 4 show at the Marcus Amphitheater with openers Jack's Mannequin, a like-minded piano rock group. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 21 at noon.

Bringing the flair of Broadway and tin-pin alley jazz to classic rock, Chicago lit up AM radio in the 70s with zippy, horn-laden jams like Saturday In The Park and Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is. After four decades together, the group is still touring without having ever taken a hiatus, and many of its original members remain, including its principle songwritersthe major exception, of course, is singer Peter Cetera, who left for a solo career way back in 1985 (howd that work out for him?) Last time they appeared in Milwaukee they played the Riverside Theater, so this show is a huge step up for them, size-wise. Co-headliners Earth, Wind and Fire should help them draw a crowd. The bands will perform seperate sets then come together for a shared set when they play the Marcus Amphitheater on Tuesday, June 30. Tickets for that show go on sale Saturday, March 28 at noon.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
