Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

After all these years, 3 Doors Down are still writing soundtrack-ready, doom-and-gloom scorchers about matters of life-and-death urgency. It’s a profitable formula, and all their albums since their 2000 hit single “Kryptonite” have charted reliably. It’s been a while since Staind, who open for 3 Doors Down at their 6:30...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Their regular-dude image may suggest otherwise, but Rascal Flatts really isn’t a country band anymore. Save for that rural drawl in their vocals, and the odd steel-guitar accent here and there, the group’s recent albums reside almost exclusively in the terrain of adult-contemporary pop...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

How is Rush, a band comprised of three Canadians each pushing 60 who have been making music together since 1974, still headlining large venues like the Marcus Amphitheater? The answer can be found in the progressive-rock band’s rabid fan base (among the most loyal in all of music), which continues after all...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Even during his ’70s prime, Stevie Wonder was never much of a road-warrior, and these days, with his stardom well cemented, the perennially smiling soul singer prefers to do quick television appearances instead of laborious tour dates. This year, however, the happy one mercifully made space in his selective schedule...

This Week in Milwaukee

Gnarls Barkley @ Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard, Summerfest, 11 p.m. Summerfest schedules tend to repeat themselves, with the same bands invited back year after year, regardless of how far they descend down the C-list (case in point, Plain White T’s are returning this year, well after their 15 minutes have...
