UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State alumni and fans are invited to rock out at a free concert during We Are Weekend, one of the Penn State Alumni Association’s marquee events.

We Are Weekend will take place May 31–June 2, at University Park, and features giveaways, events, and a free concert at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Bruce in the USA headlines the concert, and Velveeta will open, with doors and concessions opening at noon on Saturday, June 1.

Hailed as “The most powerful and intense Springsteen tribute on the planet,” Bruce in the USA is comprised of seasoned world-class professional musicians and routinely plays at events across the country.

“This band is as close to seeing Bruce Springsteen as you can get. The sound, look and musicians are unparalleled to anything else,” said Dustin Rehrig, manager of DDR Entertainment.

Velveeta enjoys a passionate following in State College and beyond, playing at events throughout the region year-round. You can stay updated on the concert by visiting the Alumni Association’s Facebook page.
