KISS with Def Leppard Tickets | Last Minute Deals For Alpine Valley

Kiss with Def Leppard at Alpine Valley
It's hard to believe that the KISS - Alpine Valley show is just one day away.  When the show was announced way back in spring, it was one of the first concert announcements for Alpine Valley 2014. Now here we are, just a couple of weeks away from the fall season, with two shows left on the schedule. With that, we wanted to see what ticket prices were like for the upcoming show.  Where can you get the best deal on tickets for a couple of bands that happened to have sold tens of millions of albums over the decades.  Here is our short list of options.

Last Minute Kiss Ticket Deals For Alpine Valley - August 15

If you are going to use a ticket broker for your seats, we recommend going with a reputable company that is based in Wisconsin. Check these folks out for KISS tickets.  You can try your luck with the usual broker sites, but they might not get you your tickets on time.  The show is just one day away, so we suggest that you use the "E-ticket" delivery option.  The box office might still have a few tickets left, in sections that are far from the stage, but if you are just looking to get into the venue, that might be your best option. Be sure to allow yourself a lot of time to head out of the venue at the end of the night. Traffic is notoriously bad, if you stay for the encore. Enjoy the show Kiss fans!

Wiz Khalifa Alpine Valley Show Set For August 9 | Under The Influence Tour 2014

Coming to Alpine Valley on August 9th 2014 is the Under The Influence tour. Four top selling rap stars have gotten together to bring you some of the best that music genre has to offer. Check out Young Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Ty Dolla Sign, and Wiz Khalifa all on one stage.  Opening for the big names listed include none other than Mack Wilds, Sage The Gemini and more.

The Under the Influence tour starts on July 24, in Scranton Pennsylvania, and ends one month later in Irvine California, at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. This short tour is sure to sell out.

Wiz Khalifa has been hitting stages across the United States for the past eight years. Starting with the debut album titled, Show and Prove, Khalifa was the "one to watch" as his style grew into itself. That was 2005, and by 2007, Warner Brothers had snapped him up.  After two years of struggling with the release date of his next album, Khalifa parted ways with Warner Brothers, and looked to Atlantic Records for the support he needed. By 2010, Wiz was showing up on magazine covers, and could be found collaborating with all the hottest rap stars currently on tour.  He's touring to support his 2013 effort, titled "Blacc Hollywood."

Jimmy Buffett Show Announced For August 23 2014 | Tickets On Sale This Weekend

Buffett 2014 Alpine Valley Show
Jimmy Buffett fans will be fired up to know that he's coming back to Wisconsin on August 23. How could he even think about passing up one of the best places to perform? He probably doesn't. The Parrotheads will not let him down. It's sure to sell out.  Are you a fan? If you see Buffett perform just once, you will surely be one for a lifetime.

Jimmy Buffett has been performing his own special brand of music for the past 40 years. Country music was his first calling, but soon after that he found the Florida Keys more to his liking.  The warm sun and cool waves inspired Buffett to switch to a style of music that he's never stopped playing. 1977 was the year when he hit it big with the song Margaritaville.  Buffett parlayed his early success into a mega corporation.  Selling everything from clothing, to cheeseburgers. He still loves to tour, and perform.

Buffett Tickets For Alpine Valley Show

Jimmy Buffett tickets are available after April 15. Tickets to the show range in price, depending on the section and seat location. Keep in mind that the lawn section at Alpine Valley is not under cover. Rain or shine, the show will go on. It's best to try your luck with reserved seats, unless you don't mind getting a soak in the rain, should it come. Buffett will most likely perform all the best of his catalog, including some new songs from the 2013 release titled Songs From Somewhere.

Kiss With Def Leppard Alpine Valley August 15 | Heros Tour Starts This Summer

Kiss 2014 Alpine Valley
Two of the most legendary classic rock bands in history will make a stop at East Troy's Alpine Valley Music Theater this summer. KISS and Def Leppard havejoined forces to host the 2014 Heroes Tour across over 40 locations in the United States and Canada, kicking-off the event on June 23rd in Utah.

The duo make their way to Alpine Valley on August 15th. It will be Def Leppard's first time back in Wisconsin since headlining Rockfest in 2012, and KISS's first time back since hosting the same festival  last summer.

Other Midwest stops for the KISS and Def Leppard 2014 Heroes Tour include the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park, the Target Centre in Minneapolis, the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, and the DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston.

Highlighting the 2014 Heroes Tour are partnerships with a number of military organizations including the USO, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Hiring Our Heroes. Part of the profits earned by the tour will be donated to charities serving current and former military members, and all service men and women, as well as their families, receive special ticket prices. Earlier this month, members from both groups joined active military personnel in Los Angeles to participate in a live-streamed launch announcement that featured a question and answer session from an in-house audience and Internet users.

The summer tour will commemorate KISS's 40th year in music. Formed in 1973, the group has remained a consistent presence in popular culture and music, touring with almost every major name in the classic rock scene. This April, the band will appear for the first time ever on the cover of Rolling Stone.

DefLeppard was founded in 1977 as part of the new wave of British heavy metal. Enjoying immense success throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the band has slowed down in recent years, though remains one of the best-selling acts of all time.

Alpine Valley 2013 Concert History

Alpine Valley Concert History 2013
What was your favorite moment of the Alpine Valley 2013 concert season?  What’s in store for music fans that can’t wait for next year? With a venue like Alpine, you never know what the summer line up will look like. With that, we reflect on this past summer.

Since early February of 2013, Dave Matthews fans were excited to know that the band was coming to Alpine. On top of that, they were scheduled to play two shows, July 5 and 6. Even though the band had not put out a new disk in nearly three years, the fan base paid no mind to the fact that the band would be playing older songs. In fact, they probably liked it.

Announced later in the spring, but performing a month before DMB, was the Zac Brown concert.  Zac Brown fans came to Alpine looking to hear any one of the dozen or so hit songs that the band has mustered up. At the time of the concert announcement, the band was up for Band of the Year honors at CMA.  The honor went to Little Big Town, but that didn’t deter fans from coming to see Zac Brown in the thousands. Better luck next time guys.

In early May, it was announced that Jimmy Buffett would once again return to East Troy Wisconsin.  The date was set for August 29, and the show went off without a hitch. As always, Jimmy Buffett played a very long set, and then a nine song encore set. Fans are already hoping for a return in 2014.  In the meantime, the venue has shuttered what it can.  We might get lucky with a few concert announcements in early spring of 2014.  In the meantime, we’ll just have to reflect upon the good times of this past summer.
