Sick Puppies

One of active rock’s hottest bands and a trio from Down Under will headline this summer's U.S. Cellular Summer Jam Saturday night finale during Nebraskaland Days.

Grammy nominee Halestorm will play June 22, with the Sick Puppies opening the show.

After scoring two top 10 singles (“I Get Off” and “It’s Not You”) from the self-titled debut, the Pennsylvania quartet Halestorm are back with their second full-length, The Strange Case of….

The album has produced top 10 hits, including the track Love Bites, which earned the band a 2013 Grammy nomination for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.”

Halestorm has toured steadily for two years with such diverse acts as Shinedown, Stone Sour, Disturbed, Megadeth, Papa Roach, Godsmack and others.

The Australian trio Sick Puppies are now recording their fourth studio album, due out later this year. Their 2009 release Tri-Polar produced four top 15 singles. While they finish up their record, the band is lining up a full summer of touring, including their stop in North Platte.

Tickets for the show will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 4.

The Early Bird General Admission price is just $19, with Grandstand seating at $29. Golden Circle tickets right in front of the stage will be $49. Tickets are available at www.nebraskalanddays.com.

"We’re thrilled to get a couple of bands of this quality lined up,” concert chairman Hans Julius said. “To be able to get a band up for a Grammy this week along with a veteran act like the Puppies, this is going to be a great way to close the celebration out.
