The Cincinnati Reds have hosted some pretty big names in music for their post-game concerts over the past few years, including The Avett Brothers and Walk the Moon. This year's summer lineup so far also features a couple of music heavyweights — Zedd and AJR — with a September concert still listed as "TBA."

Superstar DJ/performer/producer Zedd will perform after the Reds' 6:40 p.m. game against the Colorado Rockies on July 26.

The Russian-born artist got his start in Germany, where he moved as a toddler, and is a classically-trained musician. He initially made his name doing remixes, rewiring songs by Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, while also crafting original tracks. He signed with Interscope Records in 2012 and has released two full-length albums, with his latest, Orbit, dropping in August. Zedd has a number of hits to his name, including "Stay" (featuring Alessia Cara on vocals) and "Clarity" (featuring Foxes). His best charting work includes the singles "Break Free" (with Ariana Grande) and "The Middle," featuring Maren Morris and Grey.

In February, Zedd released "365," a collaboration with Katy Perry. He's doing extensive touring this year, including a June headlining date at Red Rocks in Colorado and poster-topping slots at numerous festivals.

On Aug. 17, following the Reds' 6:40 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals, multi-platinum AltPop group AJR will perform.

The Electronic-fueled trio, which features brothers Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met, released its latest album, Neotheater, earlier this year; it entered Billboard's overall album chart at No. 8 and topped the Rock and Alternative album charts. 

A third post-game concert is slated for Sept. 7 but is still listed as "TBA."

The concerts start approximately 20 minutes after the final pitch and are free with the purchase of a ticket to the game (which start at $12). There are also special on-field tickets available, as well as VIP tickets that include a meet-and-greet with the artists.
