The big rock event of the week begins tonight (August 29) when motorcycle manager Harley-Davidson hosts a three-day festival to celebrate its 110th anniversary at Henry Maier Festival Park in the company's home base of Milwaukee.
The opening day lineup includes Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Doobie Brothers, Poison frontman Bret Michaels and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins's covers band Chevy Metal.
Friday's (August 30) lineup is headlined by Aerosmith with support from Buckcherry, Sick Puppies and others, while Kid Rock, Halestorm, ZZ Top and John Fogerty play on Saturday (August 31).
Details are available at www.Harley--Davidson.com.
Halestorm's Lzzy Hale tells us that motorcycles are definitely part of her heritage:
"I grew up in York, Pennsylvania, which is just like Harley town...There's a lot of leather and pretty much it's bike week all the time. It's definitely something close to my heart...I'm expecting some craziness to go down at the show."
Don't expect to see Hale herself on the back of a Hog, though:
"I'm kind of clumsy when it comes to those things, so I haven't ridden a motorcycle. But I've posed on a couple of them, (laughs) but that doesn't count."
