As a lead artist, Cabello has released two singles that entered the Top 20 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100: “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes and “Bad Things” with Machine Gun Kelly, with the latter reaching No. 4.

A Lehigh Valley native, 17-year-old Sabrina Carpenter is a singer, songwriter, and actress. She had a recurring role as the young version of Chloe Goodwin in “The Goodwin Games” and also starred as Maya Hart in the Disney Channel series “Girl Meets World.” She is signed to Hollywood Records and has released one EP and two studio albums.

The Hersheypark Event Special is available for this show. Present your concert ticket at the Hersheypark Ticketing Services Building the day before, day of, or day after a concert to receive discounted admission.

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 April 28. Two hours prior to the on-sale, fans will be directed in front of 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.
