Sammy Hagar has been tapped to play the Naperville Ribest this July (Naperville is near Chicago, IL). The fest runs from July 1st - 4th and Sammy will play Friday, July 2nd. Other performers include Los Lonely Boys, Jonny Lang, and The Charlie Daniels Band. More bands will be added.
Ribfest is held annually at Knoch Park. In fact, this is the 23rd year for the event and I'd love to see Sammy but I've already got too many "travel necessary" shows lined up this summer. Obviously the event is also about food and apparently the promoters promise a ton of ribs, pulled pork, chicken and sauces from many vendors. I don't eat meat - so I'll just believe it's all good!
To keep track of the artists, check the official fest website. Admission is $12 at the gate, but advance tickets save you some cash. Seriously, Hagar for under $12 bucks? Insane! Click for info on advance tickets.
Ribfest is put on by the Exchange Club of Naperville which raises money to fight child abuse.
