An amazing new concert venue is coming to Wisconsin and music fans are very excited.

Going To Concerts Is My Favorite Hobby

I have been a huge music fan for as long as I can remember. I still buy physical copies of album releases from my favorite bands. Some of my friends gamble, others go hunting or fishing, and the rest love golf. For me, my favorite hobby is going to concerts. I can never get enough.


Wisconsin Is A Great Place For Concerts

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs so I had always gone to concerts in and around the Windy City. Even when I first moved to Rockford many years ago, I was still driving into Chi-Town for shows. Quickly, I learned from friends that it is much easier to go into Wisconsin for the same shows. It is a lot more relaxed and has much less traffic.


Favorite Concert Venues In Wisconsin

Since I spend more time heading up to Wisconsin for concerts, some of my favorite venues are in the state. For example, Alpine Valley Music Theater is one of the best places to see a show in the country. Madison has some cool music halls but for me, Milwaukee is the place. It is home to The Rave, Riverside Theatre, and Summerfest to just name a couple. Now, a new building can be soon be added to that list.

New Concert Venue Coming To Milwaukee

The lakefront in Milwaukee is already an amazing location to see a concert with the Summerfest grounds and its multiple stages including the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. A new venue will be soon added to that area.

According to,

"Wisconsin-based promoter and venue operator FPC Live has announced its involvement in plans for a new indoor venue complex in Milwaukee, with construction tentatively scheduled to begin early next year."


"The two-venue project, with scalable capacities of up to 800 and 4000, will be developed on an existing surface lot adjacent to Henry Maier Festival Park and will host a variety of concerts and events year-round."


"These new state-of-the-art venues will provide first-class experiences and amenities for both patrons and touring artists that will be unmatched by any other venue of their size in the Midwest."
