Harrisburg University welcomes back eight-time Grammy Award-nominated band Death Cab for Cutie in concert at Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park the evening of July 14, 2022.

The concert, featuring special guest Illuminati Hotties, marks Death Cab for Cutie’s second Riverfront Park concert. The band played to a packed house at HU Presents’ first outdoor concert along the Susquehanna River in June of 2019.

“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.  We would not be able to do it without our sponsors and greatly appreciate the help of the Dauphin County Commissioners. 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.”

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

Death Cab for Cutie tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on March 11. For tickets and information about Harrisburg University Presents entire lineup of shows, visit
