Hit-making rock group Maroon 5 and Grammy-winning powerhouse Kelly Clarkson will team up for a show at Susquehanna Bank Center on Wednesday, August 7.

Maroon 5, fronted by newly-engaged crooner Adam Levine, will perform tunes like "Moves Like Jagger" and "Pay Phone" to get the crowd grooving.

The band is currently in the process of creating another album to follow up their 2012 platinum record Overexposed, and guitarist James Valentine shared with Billboard that the new album will be "darker and maybe a little more organic-sounding."

Until then, their most recent single "Love Somebody" is making its rounds on the radio and it even topped the Billboard Adult Pop singles chart.

Clarkson also has an album in the works–though perhaps it will be a bit more festive compared to Maroon 5's upcoming opus. When the "Stronger" singer isn't touring, she is working on a Christmas album that will feature country music stars Reba McEntire and Jason Aldean. There is no official release date yet, but it will hit store shelves in late 2013.

"Tie It Up," Clarkson's latest wedding-themed country jam, is appropriately reflective of her own engagement with music manager Brandon Blackstock.
