Three years after their sold-out concert at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in 2012, the Zac Brown Band will return to Bangor for a June 7 concert on the Waterfront. Tickets for the Maine stop on the band’s Jekyll and Hyde Tour, priced at $35.75 to $85.75, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 13 via Ticketmaster, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or in person locally at Mark’s Music in Brewer.

The tour will support the band’s forthcoming album “Jekyll & Hyde,” which will be out April 28 on Southern Ground/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records. The band will premiere new music from the album this weekend during their first performance on “Saturday Night Live.” Blending rock n’ roll with country, the album expands upon Brown’s cross-genre appeal, with guest spots on the album from Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Sara Bareilles. In 2013, the band released “The Grohl Sessions,” produced by Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, which combined with the band’s three previous albums have resulted in over seven million records sold. In addition to their show at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion, the Zac Brown Band will also appear at baseball stadiums including Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.

The Zac Brown Band joins previously announced Waterfront Concerts in Bangor including the Rise Above Fest on May 4, Ed Sheeran on May 24, Lady Antebellum on June 4, Train on June 18, Fall Out Boy on June 20 and others. More announcements will be coming soon; check back with cultureshock.bangordailynews.com for updates.
