MILWAUKEE (AP) – Milwaukee’s newest concert venue is one of the oldest places in the city. The historic Miller Caves will host its first concert next month. The underground bunker was dug by hand in the 1850s and was used by Frederick Miller to keep his early brews cold. Miller bought the caves and other brewing assets back when beer sold for about a nickel a glass at the city’s taverns. MillerCoors is partnering with the Pabst Theater to host a June 16th concert in the unique setting, which is the last stop on the Miller Brewery tour. MillerCoors spokeswoman Kindra Loferski tells WUWM (http://bit.ly/12RDXuU ) they’ve done some things to enhance the acoustics in the caves. The venue can accommodate only about 100 people. And, the show, featuring actor/singer John C. Reilly, is already sold out.
