MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. announced on Friday, April 25th the tenth major show slated for Summerfest 2014.  Luke Bryan with special guest Danielle Bradbery will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on Saturday, June 28.

Superstar Luke Bryan has quickly become one of Nashville’s most sought after entertainers.  His “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” is currently playing across the US and Canada, selling out all concerts to date.  His previous tour performed for 1.3 million fans in 2013 and it was clear after performing for a sold-out crowd at Summerfest 2013, Milwaukee loves Luke Bryan.  The two-time ACM co-host, who received the 2013 ACM Entertainer of The Year honor, recently celebrated the No. 1 debut of his digital EP Spring Break 6…Like We Ain’t Ever. Combined, Luke’s six Spring Break series releases have sold over 825,000 copies.

17-year-old Danielle Bradbery is the youngest winner ever of NBC’s The Voice.  She charmed her way into the national spotlight with a mix of country hits from several decades and her coach on The Voice, Blake Shelton, called her “the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice stage.”
