Memorial Stadium is ready to play ball.

After announcing a Barenaked Ladies show recently, promoter Knitting Factory Presents revealed two more acts slated to perform at the home of the Boise Hawks in a new music series called Summerfield Concerts.

▪  Indie-folk group Lord Huron will headline Wednesday, Aug. 17. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 12 at TicketWeb for $38.50 general-admission lawn. VIP tables also are available for $350. Trampled By Turtles will open.

▪  Soul-singing newcomer Leon Bridges will headline Monday, May 30. Bridges previously was scheduled to gig at the Egyptian Theatre that evening, but the show sold out in advance, giving organizers incentive to move it to a larger space. (Hopefully, this will not irk fans anticipating an intimate indoor show at the Egyptian, a historic venue in Downtown Boise.)

Tickets to the Bridges show at the Egyptian will be honored at Memorial Stadium. Otherwise, tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 12 for $29.50 general-admission seats or lawn.
