MILWAUKEE -- J. Cole will headline the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on Tuesday, July 3 during Summerfest 2018, officials announced Monday, Feb. 26.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 3 at noon at Summerfest.com and Ticketmaster.com and include admission to Summerfest.

The first artist signed to Jay-Z’s new Roc Nation label, J. Cole made himself notable through a scholarly approach to the game – no small feat considering his Magna Cum Laude distinction upon graduating from St. John’s University. J. Cole’s most recent work includes the mixtape The Warm Up, as well as a coveted guest verse on JAY-Z’s Blueprint 3 with “A Star is Born”. Soulful and strong, J. Cole’s lyrics touch on everything from his upbringing in North Carolina to the poverty and hopelessness that affect his community, Summerfest officials said in a news release.

Tickets for J. Cole can also be purchased at the Summerfest Box Office in person, Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, select Walmart stores, and by phone at 1.800.745.3000 (live Ticketmaster Agent) or 1.866.448.7849 ("Ticketmaster Express" automated phone line).  Patrons may also utilize "ticketfast" at Ticketmaster.com to print barcoded concert tickets from home.  Convenience fees may be added to all purchases.
