The concert calendar last summer was stacked with big name artists playing incredible shows throughout New England. From classic rock to country, from throwback shows to alternative rock heavyweights, there was something for everyone.

If you thought last summer was just a one-time thing, think again. The 2024 concert schedule is going to be a powerhouse again, with several bands hitting the road for the first time in years and making stops in New England.

One of those bands is Cage the Elephant, the eclectic alt-rock stalwarts who have taken a couple years away from the road for personal reasons, as well as to record new music. The band will have a brand new album hitting shelves later this year, and have planned a major tour to promote it.

One of the stops on that tour will be at the Bank NH Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire, on Wednesday, August 21. Cage the Elephant will be supported on this tour date by other notable acts Young the Giant and Bakar.

The August 21, 2024, show date for Cage the Elephant will mark five full years since the band last played the Bank NH Pavilion, or anywhere in New England. Cage the Elephant teamed up with Beck and Spoon on August 16 of 2019 for the 'Night Running' tour that rocked the venue that summer.

Tickets for Cage the Elephant with Young the Giant and Bakar go on sale Friday, March 8, at 10 AM. On-sale time is subject to change.
