MILWAUKEE -- CAKE and Ben Folds are coming to Milwaukee at the end of this Summer.

The co-headline tour is set to come to the BMO Harris Pavilion at the Summerfest grounds on Thursday, August 23 at 7 p.m.

“CAKE -- my rough contemporaries, comrades and heroes -- to me, they make universal, poetic, identifiable music with a groove. I’ve learned a lot from these guys and I’m proud as punch to be on tour with them this summer,” Folds said in a news release. “I’m telling my friends to get there early enough for Tall Heights – a great addition to this bill.”

"We are very much looking forward to touring with Ben Folds,” says CAKE’s John McCrea said in a news release. “In a culture often conflicted about its relationship to melody, and songwriting generally, Ben continues unapologetically to provide melodic clarity and musicality.  I am also looking forward to hearing Tall Heights. This co-headline line up seems like a good combination of musical styles—disparate but not antithetical to each other—and it should be a solid evening of music.”

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday, April 6 at 10 a.m.

Tickets for the show can also be purchased at the Summerfest Box Office in person, Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, select Walmart stores, and by phone at 1.800.745.3000 Convenience fees may be added to all purchases.
