From a press release:

It was announced today that multi-platinum, three-time Grammy Award-winning pop rock band Maroon 5 will be coming back to Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey on Saturday, July 14 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which start at $34.60 (processing fees apply), go on sale this Friday, May 11 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Giant Center box office (550 Hersheypark Dr., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 717-534-3911 or 800-745-3000.

Maroon 5 stand out as not only one of pop music’s most enduring artists, but also one of the 21st century’s biggest acts. To date, the universally renowned Los Angeles group has achieved three Grammy Award wins and become “the most successful group in the history of the Billboard Hot 100” with 12 Top 10 entries, selling over 20 million albums and 48 million singles worldwide. Additionally, the band has earned gold and platinum certifications in more than 35 countries.

Maroon 5’s sixth studio album, “Red Pill Blues,” was released on Nov. 3, 2017 via 222/Interscope. Executive produced by J. Kash and Adam Levine and featuring special guest appearances by SZA, Julia Michaels, A$AP Rocky, and LunchMoney Lewis, the album has both a 10-track standard edition as well as a deluxe version.

Featuring vocalist Adam Levine, who later became a coach on NBC’s hit talent show “The Voice,” Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, “Songs About Jane,” and their double platinum album “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long.”

In 2010, the band released their third studio album, “Hands All Over,” which featured the hit singles “Misery” and the anthemic “Moves Like Jagger,” which has become one of the bestselling singles of all time. In 2012, Maroon 5 released “Overexposed,” which quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection’s singles rising to the top of the charts. The band also quickly set a record for the most No. 1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history.

Maroon 5’s 2014 studio album, “V,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and featured the hit singles “Maps,” “Animals,” and “Sugar,” all of which went No. 1 on the Top 40 chart. The music video for the album’s Grammy-nominated single “Sugar” has notably logged a record-setting two billion views to date. 2017 saw the musicians release two additional chart-topping singles, “Don’t Wanna Know” and “Cold,” as well as close out a massive world tour that touched down in over 30 countries for 120 concerts in front of more than two-and-a-half million fans. On this tour, Maroon 5 also became the first American artist to headline two nights at Rock in Rio in September 2017.

The wristband policy will be in effect for this concert. Fans are permitted on the Hersheypark Entertainment Complex property beginning at 7 a.m. on May 11. Two hours prior to the on-sale, fans will be directed in front of the Giant Center box office, where they will be issued a numbered wristband. Wristbands are available for one hour and, at the conclusion of that hour, a selected fan will randomly choose a wristband that will determine the line order. Once the line is in place, fans arriving after the wristbands were issued will be escorted to the end of the numbered line.
