The Mavericks - Summerfest - July 7 - Milwaukee

Newly reunited, the Mavericks closed the Miller stage at Summerfest on Sunday night.  Raul Malo quickly mentioned how great the fans were since it had been a long time since they played Milwaukee.  Unfortunately not many fans came out for the show.  Sure there was stiff competition from The Eagles, Jimmy Eat World and Loverboy, but come on, this is the Mavericks!  Opening the set in style they featured the first three songs from the new record, one of their best in my opinion.  “Back in Your Arms Again”, “Lies”, and “Born to Be Blue” set the pace for an evening of upbeat sing-a-longs.  The rest of the show proved to be a Mavericks greatest hits parade including “There Goes my Heart”, “O What a Thrill”, and “Dance the Night Away”.  Only during the encore did they slow things down.  Mr. Malo came out solo to sing “Here Comes the Rain’” followed by the entire band performing “Blue Bayou” because according to Mr. Malo, they wanted to.  This was definitely the one show to see at Summerfest, mainly because it was the only show I saw at Summerfest.
