In case the promise of a new (and hopefully much improved) Brewers season wasn't enough to get you excited about next summer at American Family Field, the ballpark added quite the bonus to its 2023 schedule: a special country spectacular starring George Strait, Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town, all taking the stage on Saturday, June 3. 

While Stapleton and Little Big Town have been recent visitors – the former playing Fiserv Forum earlier this month, the latter hitting the Amp just last year – country icon Strait is a rare visitor, most recently playing Milwaukee more than a decade ago in 2009 as a Summerfest headliner. Next year's visit – his second at the Brewers' home stadium, after playing the field shortly after its opening in 2001 – is particularly exclusive too because it's currently just one of six stadium shows on Strait's upcoming summer tour, along with Glendale, Seattle, Denver, Nashville and Tampa. 

“American Family Field has a track record of hosting some of the top touring acts throughout its history,” said Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger, in a release. “We are thrilled to welcome George Strait, a legend in country music, back to Milwaukee and know that his performance, along with Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town, will make for an amazing evening of music.”

Tickets for this big-league country concert will go on sale to the public beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4. However, fans can get access to VIP packages and special advance tickets via an American Express Presale and Aisle Seat Offer beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
