Harrisburg—are you ready to rock?

Harrisburg University Presents today added Grammy Award winners, Portugal. The Man to a long weekend of shows slated for September 2021.

First up will be Cage the Elephant at the outdoor stage in Riverfront Park on Thursday, Sept. 23. The next day, Sept. 24, Dawes will appear at XL Live. Portugal. The Man then will play in Riverfront Park on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Cage the Elephant was slated for a 2020 concert, but, like most events, it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

HU Presents has rescheduled several other cancelled concerts for 2021, including Young the Giant, MisterWives and Jason Isbell.

These concerts will go forward only if permitted by CDC guidelines, according to HU Presents.
