Death Cab for Cutie makes return trip to Harrisburg for summer concert

Death Cab for Cutie

They’re back, baby!

Nearly three years ago, Death Cab for Cutie inaugurated the return of big-time, outdoor concerts to Harrisburg.

On Monday, concert organizer Harrisburg University Presents announced that the Grammy-award nominated band will return to the stage in Riverfront Park on July 14.

“We are thrilled to welcome back DCFC to Harrisburg this summer,” said Frank Schofield, Harrisburg University director of live entertainment and media services “They bond so closely with the community that I’m sure this will produce some of the best moments of our seven-show summer concert series.”

Illuminati Hotties will open for the featured band.

The Death Cab for Cutie concert is the second HU Presents Summer Concert Series show announced this year in partnership with Harrisburg city, Dauphin County, Clair Global, PNC Bank, and Troegs Independent Brewing. Indie rockers Lord Huron, with guest First Aid Kit, will play in Riverfront Park on Aug. 20.

Death Cab for Cutie tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on March 11.

“We would not be able to do it without our sponsors and greatly appreciate the help of the Dauphin County commissioners,” Schofield said. “These shows help boost the local economy, attracting thousands of guests downtown who will frequent city restaurants, businesses, museums and more, experiencing all the great things Harrisburg has to offer.”
