HU presents two-time Grammy winners Cage the Elephant at Riverfront Park

Cage the Elephant won 2020’s Best Rock Album Grammy

Harrisburg University is thrilled to present two-time Grammy Award winners Cage the Elephant live as part of the 2020 HU Summer Concert Series at Riverfront Park at 8 p.m. on June 18.

Cage the Elephant won 2020’s Best Rock Album Grammy for Social Cues (RCA). The honor marks the band’s second win and the third time the group has been nominated. The band won 2017’s Best Rock Album Grammy for Tell Me I’m Pretty and was nominated in 2015 for Best Alternative Music Album for Melophobia.

Deeply inspired by punk music, brothers Matt and Brad Shultz began playing music in high school with fellow students Jared Champion and Daniel Tichenor. Hailing from Bowling Green, Kentucky, shortly after forming the band, the group made the bold move to London to start their career.

Their self-titled debut album gained them international attention, catapulting the band up the Billboard Alternative and Rock charts, achieving Platinum certification. Cage the Elephant has released four additional studio albums – 2011’s Thank You, Happy Birthday, the Gold- certified Melophobia, Tell Me I’m Pretty, and Social Cues on RCA Records in April of 2019.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and will be available at

HU Presents also will welcome Of Monsters and Men on June 4 and Steve Aoki, with Deorro, to Riverfront Park on June 26.

The 2020 HU Summer Concert Series at Riverfront Park is powered by PNC Bank, Dauphin County, and Comprehensive Financial Associates.
