Summerfest Adds Lionel Ritchie, Jennifer Lopez as Headliners
Today Summerfest rolled out a pair of headliner announcements, one intentional, and the other, maybe not so much. Lionel Ritchie was officially announced by the festival as the July 2nd headliner with special guest Michael McDonald at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. Presale for that show will begin on March 21st, with an official on-sale date of Friday, March 22nd.
The more interesting of the two headlining reveals, though, is that Jennifer Lopez is bringing her “It’s My Party: The Live Celebration” tour that celebrates her 50th birthday to the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on July 3rd. In a move that definitely feels like a miscommunication, Lopez’ team revealed the tour on Ellen last month, and People Magazine has the dates listed as well. Locally, apparently nobody watches Ellen, as it took until today for Matt Mueller of OnMilwaukee to notice that the headlining performance was already out for the world to see.
