Sold out Lovejoy concert in Milwaukee at the Riverside Theater
Lovejoy's stop in Milwaukee on May 27, 2023 created a storm of fans surrounding the Riverside Theater. Some fans camped out overnight to secure the best spots in the general admission section. The enthusiastic crowd traveled from near and far to attend one of the U.S. stops for the Brighton-based English indie band.
While early in their career, the band's first stop in Milwaukee sold out the 2,500 seat theater might be there last - their next stop will be at a larger venue to accommodate more passionate, lyric loving fans. The merch line was endless and their fan joy was palpable. I marveled at drummer Mark Boardman as he was spinning his sticks between his fingers and or rocking the cheesehead. I predict big things for Lovejoy's future. The show ended with "Concrete" cementing the force of connection between the artists and their fans.
