It seems like it’s been years since we’ve had a new concert announcement to share, but the folks at the Riverside Theater have announced that Mexican Tejano / Norteño group Intocable will perform at the venue on Friday, Sept. 3 at 8 p.m.
It’s hard to call this a return to concerts in Milwaukee as the Pabst Theater Group has a number of shows on the books that have not yet been canceled or postponed.
Whether or not they will be able to go on, however, remains in question. Performers could cancel, or local health department restrictions could prevent them moving forward.
The folks at the Pabst Theater Group have said throughout the pandemic that they will maintain contact with local health officials and abide by rules that aim to protect the health of concertgoers.

Having said that, tickets for the Intocable show – which will hopefully come at a time when concerts are more likely to again take place – go on sale online and at the Pabst and Riverside box offices Friday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m.
