C&R: Staff Most Anticipated Shows in 2018

Happy 2018, Madison! It’s a new year… and while many people might be busy crafting new resolutions, hitting the gym, or trying to figure out how to rid their homes of all the white elephant gifts they didn’t ask for, we at Majestic are focused on something a little more important: planning our concert line-ups for the year.

Nothing makes an experience more fun quite like a good dose of anticipation beforehand. That’s why we are already looking ahead to our most anticipating concerts for 2018.

8. Portugal. The Man

“Portugal The Man! They always have such a busy stage setup with colorful psychedelic art and a top notch light show, matched by their erratic energy. Never know when they’ll go off on a tangent and get lost in beautifully dark melodies. It’s rare to see a band so in the zone, as a member of the crowd you can’t help but feel it too. Don’t miss this one.” – Nate, Street Team

“Portugal. The Man with Twin Peaks – is a better combination possible?? Nope. No way.” – Augie, Blog Contributor

Don’t miss Portugal. The Man on February 11th. This Majestic show, taking place at the Overture Center for the Arts. Get tickets HERE, and don’t forget to RSVP.
