RiverJazz is returning to Bethlehem in May and June with a lineup of jazz, soul and more. 

Aaron Neville, the R&B icon behind the hit "Don't Know Much," will headline the monthlong spring concert series. The 76-year-old singer will perform on June 16 at 8 p.m. at the Musikfest Cafe at SteelStacks. Tickets to the show will cost $49 to $59. 

Over the course of a career dating to 1960, Neville has put out four platinum albums of his smooth sound. He's known for duets with the singer Linda Ronstadt and for his work with his siblings as The Neville Brothers. Neville performed in Bethlehem in 2013 at the Zoellner Arts Center.
