Bands Coming to Summerfest 2017 | Part One of Two

This will be the 50th anniversary of "The World's Largest Music Festival" known as Summerfest. With just a few months to go before this eleven day festival begins, the American Family Insurance Amphitheater headliners are mostly locked in. At the time of this post, there are just two more acts to be announced. Looking for great American Family Insurance Amphitheater tickets? We have partnered with one of the best brokers in Wisconsin.

On June 28, the Red Hot Chili Peppers come to Milwaukee. After nearly 35 years of making music, "RCHP" is still going strong.  Their 2016 release, titled "The Getaway" is album number eleven for the band. It had been five years since their prior release. The Chili Peppers have amassed nearly two dozen music awards, including six Grammy's and three Billboard awards.

Luke Bryan plays on June 29, with Danielle Bradbery. In the ten years since Bryan hit the country music scene, he's released five top selling albums. This Leesburg Georgia son of a peanut farmer hit the Nashville streets at age 29. He combined his talent as a singer and his business degree, and seemingly made all the right moves in country music. He started off as a song writer for a famous publishing house. By 2007, he had his own hit song, titled "All My Friends Stay." Bryan spent time on the show "Celebrity Apprentice", wrote hit songs in the past ten years, and toured a number of times. This road trip is in support of his 2015 album titled "Kill The Lights."

Zac Brown seems to be a perennial favorite to Summerfest these days. He's coming back in 2017, and performing on July 1st. What can we say about Zac Brown? It's been 13 years since he first hit the country music scene with the album titled "Home Grown." His second album was the "home run" for Brown. "The Foundation" reached number two in the US country charts, and has sold over 3.4 million units. Since album number two, Zac Brown found that his next three albums all hit number one. This current tour is in support of what will be a May 2017 release. It's titled "Welcome Home."

Pink has been going strong since 2000, with her solo release titled "Can't Take Me Home." That double platinum album sent Pink skyrocketing to fame. She's managed to put together just six studio albums, but they are all strong efforts, worthy of one's time.
