Wisconsin Gazette - - Season Preview - Com­piled by Michael Muck­ian

Noth­ing’s bet­ter than a shiny new venue and, when the Fiserv Fo­rum opens its doors Sept. 4 for The Killers con­cert, it’ll be clear from the start that the new arena is much more than the home of the Mil­wau­kee Bucks.

Think of the new fa­cil­ity as the late BMO Harris Bradley Cen­ter on steroids — with a first-year mu­sic sched­ule to match.

In the first month, the fo­rum will host co­me­dian Kevin Hart (Sept. 13), Ma­roon 5 (Sept. 16), Justin Tim­ber­lake (Sept. 21) and co­me­dian Jim Gaf­fi­gan (Sept. 22). And that’s just for starters.

Sand­wiched be­tween Bucks games and other sport­ing events will be Me­tal­lica (Oct. 16), Foo Fight­ers (Oct. 17), The Ea­gles (Oct. 18), twenty one pi­lots (Oct. 20) and Fleet­wood Mac (Oct. 28).

Other shows on the cal­en­dar in­clude Josh Groban and Id­ina Men­zel (Nov. 3), Panic! At the Disco (Jan. 27), El­ton John (Feb. 19) and Pink (May 2).

We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2019 will bring.
