Prairie Jam, a daylong outdoor country music festival, will take over Investors Group Field on Aug. 10. Tickets start at $69.50 plus fees and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 25.

The stadium show was one of several concert announcements made Monday.

Broken Bells, the musical collaboration between Danger Mouse musician/producer Brian Burton and the Shins vocalist James Mercer, will perform at the Burton Cummings Theatre on Aug. 4.

Burton has five Grammy wins in the last seven years and has teamed up with the likes of Cee-Lo Green, the Black Keys, Gnarls Barkley and, most recently, U2. He has made two records with Mercer as Broken Bells, the latest of which, After the Disco, hit the stores in January.

Regan has been recently nominated as best comic in the 2014 American Comedy Awards. Away from the stage, he will appear in the upcoming Chris Rock comedy film Finally Famous.

Tickets, which sell for $42.50 plus service charges, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
