Country star Sam Hunt will return for rescheduled Summerfest

After a month of closings, cancellations and postponements, here's something refreshing to report: a festival concert announcement. Country star Sam Hunt announced his rescheduled summer tour on social media, complete with a new headliner date at Summerfest: Friday, Sept. 4.

Hunt is the first prior Big Gig headliner to officially confirm his return to the festival lineup, complete with a concert date. The "Body Like a Back Road" pop country singer was originally set to headline the Big Gig on June 26, but with the entire country social distancing to contain the spread of the coronavirus, Summerfest moved the entire festival from June and July to three weekends in September, putting its mostly confirmed American Family Insurance Amphitheater lineup in question.

Those who already purchased tickets for the original Sam Hunt show are asked to hold onto their tickets as they will be honored for this newly rescheduled Big Gig concert date. Refunds, however, will be available from the original point of purchase (though, due to the state's current "Safer At Home" order, the in-person Summerfest box office is closed until further notice).

For more information and updates on the rest of Summerfest's rescheduled lineup, as well as other closings and (hopefully) re-openings, stay tuned to OnMilwaukee.
