MILWAUKEE — Yung Gravy is set to play American Family Insurance Amphitheater this Thursday, July 6 at 7:30 p.m., according to organizers.
According to Summerfest organizers in a statement, the concert is free with festival admission. Seating in the Amphitheater for the Yung Gravy concert will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with no ticket required.
Yung Gravy already headlined a performance on June 30. This comes after AJR canceled their Summerfest show due to their father's death.

Jimmy Buffett also canceled his Summerfest appearance on short notice. AJR was supposed to be his replacement.
According to Summerfest's website, refunds will be available at the point of purchase, and tickets purchased with a credit card will be refunded automatically.
According to AJR's social media post:
"Hey guys, we want to be really honest with you about what’s going on in our lives right now. For a year now, our Dad has been getting sicker and sicker. It’s been a horrible, insane, scary, beautiful year, and in the short future, it feels like our time with Gary might soon be over. We hope you guys can understand, we gotta cancel the upcoming July shows and spend as much time with him as possible. (All your tickets will be refunded of course.) As we wrote the TMM album this past year, the emotions we went through ended up finding their way into the music, so when that comes out, hopefully it will shine more of a light into what we went through. We’re all lucky to have had the best Dad ever, and to have known such a caring, generous, loving human being. Love you guys so much, and speak soon."

About Yung Gravy
Only the best things get better with age—wine, cheddar, 401ks, the list goes on. It turns out Yung Gravy gets better with age too.
When you think about it, the name Yung Gravy says a great deal. It’s perpetually youthful, and it oozes “sauce.” As such, Yung Gravy uses his own special recipe to bring originality and positivity to make his one-of-a-kind impact on the genre. Gravy flexes his passion for soul music and oldies in his production, sampling a wide range of musical styles dating from the 1940’s to the present-day. Nostalgic and often-jubilant melodies paired with heavy trap drums form the usual canvas for his signature baritone voice—reminiscent of Barry White. Showcasing effortless flows and endlessly quotable lyrics, Yung Gravy paints something truly unique while clearly having a good time doing so. In the span of six short years, Gravy has transformed from Soundcloud stalwart to platinum powerhouse. To date, his accolades include three platinum andfour gold singles as well as 10 sold out tours of North America, Europe, and Australia. He has collaborated with his self-proclaimed musical heroes, including Lil Wayne, Chief Keef, Juicy J, T-Pain, and the late Young Dolph. Gravy became the soundtrack, and unofficial second mascot, of the Tampa Bay Lightning, and was given an honorary Stanley Cup Ring. He starred in a worldwide commercial campaign with Martha Stewart, and weeks later performed for the VMAs and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Not to mention, he partnered with Samsung and Jimmy John’s for campaigns. Tallying 6 billion streams and selling 5 million units thus far, he’s notched four entries on the Billboard 200, two in the Top 30 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, and two on the Top 20 of the Top Album Sales Chart. He’ll hit the stage at Bottlerock and Hangout Music Festival in 2023.
For all of the swagger and style he exhibited upon his arrival, he managed to become even smoother since his introduction in 2016. After streams in the billions, packed venues, and “side missions” with Martha Stewart, he stirred up his tastiest sauce yet on his 2022 third full-length opus, Marvelous [Republic Records] introduced by the chart-topping platinum-certifiedBillboard Hot 100 Top 30 single “Betty (Get Money).”
