Event Description

The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, the leading non-profit advocacy organization for the LGBTQ community, welcomes Walk the Moon on Friday, June 7.  

In addition to your ticket, be sure to add our Weekend Drink Package, which includes complimentary beer and cocktails ALL WEEKEND at Pittsburgh Pride including:  Pride Rocks PGH concert with Walk the Moon, Saturday PrideFest, Pride Rocks PGH concert with Toni Braxton, and Sunday PrideFest.

Known for their energetic performances, vibrant face paint stage tradition, and kaleidoscopic music videos, Walk the Moon is made up of Nicholas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Eli Maiman and Sean Waugaman and was formed in 2006 at Kenyon College in Cincinnati. 

The band’s first release “Anna Sun,” which was named for a professor, quickly gained airplay and was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To." Additionally, the single was also named song of the summer by MTV and Seventeen, as well as one of the best songs of the year by Amazon. 

In June 2012, the band released their first major label studio album, Walk the Moon. It included a re-recorded version of "Anna Sun," which peaked at No. 20, giving Walk the Moon their first top twenty hit on the charts.

In December 2014, the band released the song "Shut Up and Dance" off their second major-label studio album. The song catapulted the band to stardom when the single became a multi-platinum global smash that peaked at No. 1 on the Alternative, Hot AC, AC charts, No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went to No. 2 on Top 40 radio.  The track also broke the record for consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart at the time.

"Shut Up and Dance" racked up over six million downloads and 850 million streams in the process leading to a slew of honors including winning two Billboard Music Awards, a nomination for an MTV Music Video Award for Best Rock Video, American Music Award nominations for Favorite Pop/Rock Duo Or Group, New Artist of the Year, and Favorite Alternative Rock Artist. They were also nominated for an iHeart Radio Music Award for Best Duo/Group of the Year, Song of the Year, and Alternative Rock Song of the Year.

In the Fall of 2017, the group released the pop radio hit "One Foot" from their third album “What If Nothing,” which made its debut at #6 on the U.S. iTunes charts. The album included hits "Headphones" and "Surrender.”  

In January 2019, the band released their new single, "Timebomb" and since then they have joined Muse as their opening act during their Simulation Theory North American Tour which ended in April.

There will be several full-service bars available serving all the popular libations (so be sure to bring your ID), as well as numerous food options to satisfy your every food craving. 

To attend the event, you must be 18 or older or accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 25. The concert is standing room only.
