New Bucks Arena
grand opening Aug. 26
The grand opening of the new Milwaukee Bucks arena, called the Wisconsin Entertainment & Sports Center until a name sponsor is found, is set for Sunday, Aug. 26. The event will include public tours of the arena and the fourth annual Bucks Block Party presented by Klement’s Sausage.
The $524-million arena is located at 1111 Vel R. Phillips Ave. (formerly N. 4th Street) just north of the site of the arena it replaces, the BMO Harris Bradley Center. In addition to being home court for the NBA Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette University’s Golden Eagles men’s basketball team, the arena will be a more attractive venue for entertainers and other events. September appearances already are booked for Kevin Hart, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake and comedian Jim Gaffigan. And Professional Bull Riders will bring the “toughest tour on dirt” to the arena for the Milwaukee Invitational Oct. 6-7. nba.com/bucks
