With festival date announcements and warmer temperatures (*knocks on wood*), summer is slowly yet surely coming together – and so is Summerfest, as the Big Gig today announced yet another headliner booked for the BMO Pavilion this year: Goo Goo Dolls, hitting the grounds stage on Saturday, June 22.

The "Iris" and "Slide" late '90s hitmakers (and SafeHouse fans!) last came to Milwaukee in 2022 for a stop at The Pabst Theater. 

Reserved seating tickets for the concert will go on sale beginning Friday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster and Summerfest's website as well as in person at the Big Gig's box office. But, as with all BMO Pavilion Summerfest gigs, free first-come, first-served seating will also be available on the day of the concert. For more information, click here

With the booking of Goo Goo Dolls, the BMO Pavilion now has six of its headlining acts locked for the upcoming Big Gig. The lineup, as it currently stands, looks like this:

  • Thursday, June 20 – Brittany Howard
  • Friday, June 21 – TBA
  • Saturday, June 22 – Goo Goo Dolls
  • Thursday, June 27 – MUNA
  • Friday, June 28 – REO Speedwagon

And that's just one of the many Summerfest stage lineups yet to be filled – so stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more announcements and updates.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
