Aaron Lewis is the third act announced for Stir Cove's summer concert series.

The former Staind frontman and current country singer will play the outdoor venue on May 27. Southern rock band Blackberry Smoke will open the show.

Lewis came to prominence fronting the hard-rock band Staind, but fans took notice when a solo acoustic version of Staind's "Outside" became a hit in 2001. He released a country EP, "Town Line," in 2011 and a full-length album, "The Road," in 2012.

Lewis is working on a second solo album, and he performs both solo material and Staind songs.

Tickets, $38, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Also announced Monday is a summer show at Lincoln's Pinewood Bowl from pop-rock band Walk the Moon.

The "Shut Up and Dance" band will play that jam and many others Aug. 12 at the amphitheater. Indie pop band Mister Wives will open.

Walk the Moon exploded after releasing its 2014 album, "Talking Is Hard." Many dates on its 2015 tour, which included a stop at Sumtur Amphitheater in Papillion, were sold out.

"Shut Up and Dance" broke the record for the most time spent at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart with 27 weeks. The previous record was a tie between Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" and Hozier's "Take Me to Church."

Tickets, $29.50 to $49.50, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
