Wallflowers Get Revved Up For Tibet With Free Harley Gig

The Wallflowers will give a free concert in Milwaukee on June 13 as part of the city’s four-day musical celebration of the 95th anniversary of Harley-Davidson.

Other artists perhaps angling for a few complementary vehicles from the motorcycle manufacturer include the Eagles’ Joe Walsh and Cheap Trick, according to the “Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.”

Both Trick and the Wallflowers share the distinction of having been tapped to open stints of Pearl Jam’s upcoming tour (see “Spacehog, Mudhoney, Frank Black…” ), and punk rockers Zeke have been added to the second Pearl Jam-Wallflowers show scheduled for July 22 in Seattle.

Jakob and the boys will be using the open-air gig at Milwaukee’s Veteran Park as a warm-up for their appearance the next day at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington, D.C. The band was originally set to play at last year’s Tibetan show in New York, but bowed out and was replaced by the Mighty Mighty
