Mumford mania continues, Miranda teams with Dierks, Buble brings the swing
Monday, September 2, 2013


Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons

Mumford mania continues: Fresh off the heels of its Lollapalooza headlining appearance, Mumford & Sons launches an outdoor shed tour that stops by the Summerfest grounds. Consider this the last fling for summer, plus a super-sized chance to see indie folk-flavored tunes off 2009's "Sigh No More" and last year's "Babel" in the band's entrancing live tradition. Tuesday, September 3 at Marcus Amphitheater: www.ticketmaster.com.

Miranda Lambert Miranda Lambert Miranda Lambert Miranda Lambert

Miranda teams with Dierks: The blockbuster country series also bids farewell for the summer down in Tinley Park with a double bill blast. Miranda Lambert may have first found fame as a finalist on "Nashville Star," but she's certainly exploded on her own across four hit albums centered around a pop country dynamic. Her pal Dierks Bentley is certainly a marquee name in his own right, who leans more towards the genre's traditional side (with bits of bluegrass), but nonetheless boasts an arena-ready crossover sensibility.

Michael Buble Michael Buble Michael Buble Michael Buble

Buble brings the swing: Often billed as a modern day Frank Sinatra, but is perhaps more accurately a direct descendent of Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble continues to swing his way through a massively successful career. His latest chart-topping release "To Be Loved" is the main focus of this fall's outing, which has some pretty big shoes to fill after his previous "Crazy Love" tour sold out in 80 cities and was taken in by over cities and was taken in by over two million fans.
