Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 8 p.m.

It’s easy to take B.B. King for granted. For 60 years the elder statesman of blues has been touring rigorously, and even as he entered his 80s he barely slowed down. It was a sobering moment, then, when he announced his “farewell tour” in 2006. Fans who had gotten used to seeing him annually were forced to imagine . . .

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 8 p.m.

Rick Springfield is in Milwaukee, and he’s not planning on going anywhere soon. Through May 10, the ’80s icon will be playing nightly 8 p.m. shows at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s Northern Lights Theatre.
