The BoDeans will share the Wisconsin State Fair spotlight with the Gufs on Friday, August 10th on the Miller Lite Main Stage.
It's the first time, I believe, that these two Milwaukee mainstays will share a concert bill on a Milwaukee-area stage.
To date, the Gufs also have lined up a Summerfest gig for July 8th. A BoDeans' Summerfest show has yet to be announced, and I have learned that the band that one won't be as the band will not play the Big Gig this year. But, Sammy and Kurt do have seven additional tour dates listed on their Web site.
Tickets for the BoDeans/Gufs State Fair show go on sale this Saturday and begin at $10.
