Enjoying a concert amid throngs of excited fans provides a joy and spontaneity that can never be equaled by staying at home and listening to CDs, mp3s, or imprisoned bands playing under duress. Revel in unchained melodies with today's GrouponLive deal: for $45, you get two tickets to a concert at the Marcus Amphitheater during Festa Italiana (a $90 value before fees, or up to a $124.60 value online, including all ticketing fees). Covered seating will be available in sections 4–8 and is assigned on a first-purchased, first-served basis upon ticket pickup at the Italian Community Center. Entrance to the festival itself is included; choose between the following options:
Festa Italiana welcomes two classic American pop groups—The Monkees and Franki Valli & the Four Seasons—to its celebration of Italian-American culture and traditions. TV stars and pop-rock paragons The Monkees have enchanted fans with catchy melodies and treetop acrobatics for four decades. Celebrating the 45th anniversary of the band's genesis, three of the original four Monkees—Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork—have reunited for the first time in a decade to resurrect such hits as "I'm a Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville," and "Daydream Believer," as well as tunes from their cult-classic film Head. Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons have wowed crowds with their powerful falsettos for nearly 50 years, earning spots in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Rather than pinching fans’ cheeks and pulling quarters from their ears, the group will tickle eardrums with hits such as “Walk Like a Man,” “Sherry,” and “December 1963 (Oh What a Night).”
The 23,000-capacity Marcus Amphitheater lets guests enjoy aural delights and stage-bound antics outdoors, under the watchful eyes of Milwaukee’s skyscrapers and the jealous gaze of music-loving clouds. Today’s deal also includes admission to Festa Italiana, where fans can share a tiramisu with a loved one or dance the tarantella with a charming Joe Pesci lookalike.
