This year’s Summerfest lineup has been a lineup constantly in flux. Numerous cancelations (mostly due to COVID-19) have created numerous holes in the Big Gig’s schedule, leaving artists both national and local to fill the gaps. But this may be a first: an artist already playing during the day stepping in to play again at night.

And so it goes with ’90s favorites Spin Doctors. The “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” tunesmiths were already set to play today at (What time is it?) 4:30 p.m. at the Uline Warehouse Stage. But thanks to a last-minute cancelation from Natasha Bedingfield (due to COVID, natch), the Doctors are just going to go ahead now and fill in for her, too. Which means that today at Summerfest—on Thursday, September 16, in the year of our Lord 2021—you can see the Spin Doctors perform twice. Those shows are:

4:30 p.m. at the Uline Warehouse Stage


8 p.m. at the Johnson Controls World Stage
