The show is being billed as a “Grand Opening Concert” for the newly renovated American Family Insurance Amphitheater. A press release reads:

The Foo Fighters show on Friday, July 30th will be first concert at the new American Family Insurance Amphitheater, which recently underwent a $51.3 million dollar renovation. Through this two-year project, every aspect of the venue was improved to enhance the artist and fan experience alike. From increasing production capacity and backstage amenities to completely reimagining food and beverage options; from new hospitality areas to improved accessibility, the building has seen a complete transformation.

“A legendary band for a legendary venue! What a great way to open our new building,” said Don Smiley, President and CEO of Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. “We couldn’t be more excited to host Foo Fighters for the first concert at the NEW American Family Insurance Amphitheater. This venue is built for legendary bands, and we look forward to making some noise this summer, starting with the Foos.”

“We are incredibly honored Foo Fighters chose Milwaukee as one of their first stops back on the road,” said Charlie Goldstone, President of FPC Live. “They are ‘Rock Royalty’ and the perfect band to kick off the next generation of live music at American Family Insurance Amphitheater.”
