Music Fans Are Sadden By Closing Of Popular Wisconsin Theater
A famous theater in Milwaukee has hosted a show for the very last time.
Wisconsin Is A Great Destination For Live Music Events
I love going to concerts. Rockford is the perfect location to check out live shows. Of course, the Forest City can host its own events at the Coronado Performing Arts Center, BMO Center, and other local venues. We are also within driving distance of cities like Chicago, the Quad Cities, and Peoria. That gives us access to many bands.
Actually, heading up to Wisconsin is an easier and cheaper option for us. Plus, you don't have to fight all that traffic. Our neighbors to the north have great outdoor festivals in the summer. They're also home to many beautiful theaters for winter enjoyment.
Northern Lights Theater Is A Popular And Famous Venue In Milwaukee
Milwaukee has an amazing live music scene with so many cool facilities to check out bands. One of the popular and famous places is the Northern Lights Theater. It's located in Potawatomi Casino. The capacity is only about 600 but they bring in pretty big names. I've seen Cheap Trick and Bad Company there to name just a couple. The setup is just like a venue in Vegas so it has a unique layout.
Famous Northern Lights Theater In Milwaukee Has Hosted Its Last Show
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino's 22-year-old concert and comedy venue has shut down, following a final Northern Lights performance with Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone Friday.
In its place, Potawatomi will offer another exclusive venue in Milwaukee — a sportsbook allowing guests to gamble on sporting events.
