MILWAUKEE - March 31, 2010 - Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. officials are excited to announce the seventh performance slated for Summerfest 2010. Superstar duo Brooks & Dunn will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on June 29 at 7:00PM, along with special guests Gary Allan and Kellie Pickler.
Brooks & Dunn have announced their final tour, “The Last Rodeo Tour", which will mark the concert culmination of the duo’s groundbreaking 20-year career. The tour follows last year’s release of Brooks & Dunn’s career-spanning double-disc collection, “#1s … and then some”, which features thirty favorites in all, including an amazing twenty-three #1 hits. Since their debut in 1991, the country music duo have had more than fifty singles on the country music charts and have recorded twelve studio albums and three greatest hits compilations. They are renowned for their high-energy stage shows and Summerfest is thrilled to have them grace the Marcus Amphitheater on their farewell tour.
Joining Brooks & Dunn are special guests and country sensations Gary Allan and Kellie Pickler. Gary Allan is known for numerous country hits like “Best I Ever Had”, “Nothing On But the Radio" and “Tough Little Boys”.
