Rockers Cage the Elephant booked to play in Riverfront Park

Harrisburg University is quickly filling up the summer outdoor concert calendar, announcing a third Riverfront Park show for June.

Cage the Elephant, a two-time Grammy Award-winning band, is slated to play on June 18, sliding into the calendar between two other recently announced shows—Of Monsters and Men and Steve Aoki/Deorro.

Formed in 2006, Cage the Elephant currently consists of lead vocalist Matt Shultz, rhythm guitarist Brad Shultz, lead guitarist Nick Bockrath, guitarist and keyboardist Matthan Minster, bassist Daniel Tichenor and drummer Jared Champion.

The band has five studio albums under their belt, most recently, “Social Cues,” which was released last year. That album recently earned the band the Grammy Award for best rock album, the second time they’ve received the prestigious award.

The HU concert series has brought large-scale concerts back to Riverfront Park since last June, when Death Cab for Cutie played. HU has now announced its third show in the park over just the past three weeks.

Tickets for Cage the Elephant go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday. For more information or to buy tickets for HU Concert Series shows, visit the concert series website.
