The 2016 lineup at the Walmart AMP is starting to take shape.

The venue has been rolling out the roster steadily over the last few weeks, with the latest announcement coming on Monday that pop bands Walk The Moon and Mister Wives will be in town for a show on Thursday, Aug. 11.

Walk The Moon was formed in Cincinnati in 2008 by singer/keyboardest Nicholas Petricca. The band released their first album, I want! I want! independently in 2010, and were signed to RCA Records the very next year. Their sophomore album, Talking Is Hard, was released in 2014, and exploded based on the strength of their single, Shut Up + Dance, which spent 22 weeks on Billboard’s Top 10 alternative rock radio charts (including four weeks at No. 1).

New York band Mister Wives, who has been showing up on the lineup of just about every major festival in the country the last few years including this year’s Bonnaro festival, will open the show.

Tickets range from $22.50 to $50, and go on sale Saturday, Feb. 6 at 10 a.m. Lawn tickets sold in bundles of four are also available for this show for $19.25 per ticket.

To purchase tickets, visit the Walton Arts Center box office in person inside Nadine Baum Studios, call 479-443-5600, or visit amptickets.com.

Other AMP shows announced for this season include Ellie Goulding on May 20; Journey and the Doobie Brothers on May 31; Kenny Chesney on June 2; Weezer and Panic! at the Disco on July 17; and Twenty One Pilots on Aug. 3.
