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.

Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
