Guns N’ Roses will headline Summerfest’s American Family Insurance Amphitheater on July 4, the band announced today. The show will be part of the legendary hard-rock band’s huge 2020 world tour, which will take the band through huge chunks of North America and Europe.
The show will feature something resembling the band’s classic lineup. After years of touring with ringers, Axl Rose reunited with Slash and Duff McKagan for a huge and lucrative tour in 2016. Like those shows, this one promises to deliver all the expected hits, “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Paradise City,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “November Rain” among them.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Prices have not yet been announced.
