3 Doors Down will find their way back to Bethlehem this spring, this time with fellow rockers Candlebox along for the ride.

The two bands on May 19 will stop at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center, officials announced Monday in a news release. Show time is 8 p.m.

General admission tickets cost $49.50. Reserved seating tickets cost $69.50.

3 Doors Down's debut album The Better Life spawned the singles "Kryptonite," "Loser," "Be Like That" and "Duck & Run." The Mississippi natives have collectively racked up six No. 1 singles, including the songs "When I'm Gone"  and "Here Without You," and have sold more than 16 million albums. The band will release the album, Us and the Night, on March 11.

3 Doors Down previously headlined Sands in 2014. In August 2015, 3 Doors Down performed, with Collective Soul, at Musikfest in Bethlehem.

Candlebox is best known for the hits "Far Behind" and "You," both of which were released off of their 1993 self-titled debut album. The band on April 22 will release their sixth studio effort, and first through the Pavement Music label, Disappearing in Airports. Candlebox in 2008 and 2012 headlined Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown.

Sands officials also announced Monday the return of comedian Andrew "Dice" Clay on May 13 and comedian Chris D'Elia on June 25. Show times for both shows are 8 p.m. Tickets for Clay cost $29.50-$39.50; D'Elia tickets cost $25-$35.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, March 4, through ticketmaster.com, sandseventcenter.com, by calling 800-745-3000 and at the box office, 77 Sands Blvd.
