MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- As Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary draws closer, the motorcycle company announced new deals for ticket-buyers and updated its list of musical performers for its celebratory concert at the Marcus Amphitheater in August.
Harley-Davidson announced the changes on Tuesday, July 9th, 51 days away from the beginning of the festivities. Among the most prominent changes to its celebrations include adding musical guest John Fogerty to its list of musical performers, which also include Uncle Kracker, Kid Rock, Kip Moore and Toby Keith.
"John Fogerty hasn't been on stage since he released his new album earlier this year," said Steve Piehl, Director of Customer Experience for Harley-Davidson. "This will be his first time performing since that album came out."
Harley-Davidson also announced it will offer a two-day ticket pass for its three-day festival on Summerfest grounds. The festival will begin Thursday, August 29th and end Saturday, August 30th. Ticket buyers may purchase a two-day ticket for $79. A three-day pass costs $95.
"They will be able to buy a 2-day ticket," confirmed Piehl. "So they can pick any of the 2 days and they can buy the ticket for the weekend."
Though the official festival is only a three-day event, activities surrounding the anniversary will go on for much longer. There will also be Harley dealer events - such as street parties - all week, an Ultimate Fighting Championship fight and a custom bike show at the Harley Museum on Sunday, August 31st.
