Neil Young Plays Summerfest 2015 | Neil Young Tickets for Milwaukee

Neil Young will be play at Summerest 2015, headlining the Marcus Amphitheater on July 5. Neil Young was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1945 and began his career at the young age of 15 in 1960 covering “The Shadows” band. Young is known for his lyrics, which at times get very personal, and his singing voice which is high-pitched for a male. Young has the distinction of being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice, first as a solo artist in 1995, and then again two years later for his work as a member of the group known as “Buffalo Springfield”. Young was actually one of the founders of Buffalo Springfield along with Richie Furay and Stephen Stills.

Neil Young has had a very long and successful solo career. Young released his first solo album in 1968, and since then he has released a grand total of 35 solo albums in his career with his most recent ones being “Storytone” and “A Letter Home” released in 2014. Throughout the course of his career, Young has won a handful of Juno Awards such as Album of the Year for “Harvest Moon” in 1994, Vocalist of the Year in 1995, and Artist of the Year in 2011.

Earlier this month Neil Young announced his next tour. It will be called the Rebel Content Tour, and the tour will run from July 5 through July 22 of this year. Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real will be guests of the Tour, and they will be performing with Young when he headlines the Marcus Amphitheater on July 5. Part of the purpose of this tour will be to promote his upcoming album “The Monsanto Years” which will be released on June 16th.

Packers Mock Draft 2015 | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers 2015 Mock Draft
Well, here it is, our official Ticket King Green Bay mock draft for the Packers. This is honestly about as good of a draft as the Packers could hope for. In a perfect world, we got our guy in Marcus Peters.  The Packers are very needy in that position. Again, in our perfect world, we're still able to get two more quality players in Jordan Phillips out of Oklahoma, and Denzel Perryman the linebacker. This move will be filling two major holes. We really like Nick O'Leary as a pass catcher and Aaron Ripkowski can finally allow the Packers to say goodbye to John Kuhn, after this season comes to an end. 
We think Green Bay will once again hope for a solid Tight End, by drafting Nick O'Leary and Jean Sifrin.  Would anyone expect a seventh round draft choice to start this fall? We won't know until mini-camp. Let us know what you think of this draft.

Rolling Stones Milwaukee Tickets | Ticket King Green Bay

The Rolling Stones come to Milwaukee on June 23. It came as a surprise to some fans, as the Marcus Amphitheater is one of the smallest venues on their tour. Still, Summerfest fans are happy to welcome the band to the "World's Largest Music Festival."  If you are looking for Rolling Stones Milwaukee tickets, we have a link to the site.

It was 1964 when the Stones hit the road on their first tour.  The band spent the month of January driving across England, playing mostly theaters. An interesting fact about that tour is that the band played two shows at every venue. That just doesn't happen these days. For February, the band started their second road trip on February 8, performing in Edmonton England, at the Regal Theater.  The band didn't stray too far from home in early 1964, but performed quite a bit in that year.  They did two North American tours that year.  In 1965 the band played six dates in Denmark and Sweden. Really, the band played in only four cities on that road trip.

Rolling Stones Tour Dates 1990 - 2015

Moving on to more modern times, the band did a surprise show at "Toad's Place" in 1989, just before moving on to their massive Steel Wheels tour.  It covered sixty tour dates in the United States and Canada. The band took six weeks off, and then performed ten shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. Nearly three months later, the Rolling Stones started their European leg of the same tour with a first stop at De Kuip in Rotterdam.  The band went on to tour again in 1994, 1999, 2002-2003, 2005, 2013, and 2014.

Packers Mock Draft 2015 | Seven Rounds of Our Best Guesses

Now that the free agent period has settled down, we thought it would be time to update the Packers mock draft, as there are changes that need to be made following the free agent period.  Green Bay will most likely need help in the secondary, and might pick up a tight end. Will Green Bay do as they have done for years, and draft their way to success? 

Round 1: Marcus Peters/CB/Washington- With the return of Letroy Guion and B.J. Raji, the Packers no longer need to be desperate for a defensive tackle. However, the Packers did lose both of their corners in free agency, Davon House and Tramon Williams. The Packers will need to draft a cornerback high, possibly even first. Peters is slated to go late first, and makes sense for the Packers defensive scheme.

Round 2: Carl Davis/DT/Iowa- The Packers don't need to be desperate for a nose guard, but they should draft one high. Davis is a big body who has fallen a little on the boards, and would make sense for the Packers in round two if he is still there when they are on the clock.

Round 3: Denzel Perryman/ILB/Miami- The Packers inside linebacker situation has been a problem for years. This past season, Matthews looked great after being moved inside. Still, they need another one, Perryman has the skill to play in the NFL at a high level, and would make sense here.

Round 4: Eric Rowe/CB/Utah- The Packers need to not just add one corner in this draft, but preferably two now based on what happened in free agency. Rowe is a nice big body for a corner who could be the nickel or dime back as a rookie.

Round 5: Blake Bell/TE/Oklahoma- Formerly a quarterback, Bell is a terrific athlete who could add some unique depth to the Packers tight end position.

Round 6A: Ben Beckwith/OL/Mississippi State- Late in the draft, most teams add an offensive lineman somewhere for depth. Beckwith has good size and could be a good project.

Round 6B: Josh Robinson/RB/Mississippi State- The Packers need find a third running back at some point in this draft. Robinson could be that guy.

Round 6C: Joey Mbu/DT/Houston- The Packers were really thin last year along the defensive line. Mbu has nice size and can play both inside and out.

Round 7: Tevin McDonald/FS/Eastern Washington- The Packers have three good safeties right now. They should add a fourth for depth.
