MILWAUKEE -- Comedian Jim Gaffigan is the first announced show for the new Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center in downtown Milwaukee.
Gaffigan will perform at the future home of the Milwaukee Bucks on September 22, 2018. Tickets for the show, which will be performed in the round, go on sale Friday, October 27 at 10:00 a.m. on Ticketmaster.com.
“After 10 years of sold out New Year's Eve shows at The Pabst Theater, we are thrilled to welcome Jim Gaffigan back to Milwaukee in a big way as the first show announced for the new Bucks arena," said Gary Witt, CEO of Pabst Theater Group. "Jim is a Milwaukee favorite with a deep affinity for our city. It's the perfect show to bring the community together to celebrate downtown's newest entertainment destination."
Gaffigan's wife, Jeannie, is a Milwaukee native, and the comedian has performed in the state many times across his 25-year comedy career.
The Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
