Rock and Roll Hall of fame inductees Rush will play Summerfest on July 4. The band got their start way back in 1968, and since that time they have two dozen gold records to their name. Speaking of bands from long ago, The Eagles perform on July 7. Glen Frey and Don Henley make up the core of this band, but Joe Walsh is certainly a veteran "Eagle."
Pitbull will hit the Marcus stage on June 30. The band Fun performs on June 27. Opening for Fun is Teagan and Sarah. Milwaukee's own Violent Femmes will share the stage with the Avett Brothers on June 26. It seems that Femmes fans always turn out in big numbers when they play their home town of Milwaukee. It's an added bonus that the Avett Brothers are on the same bill.
