Caracas Ave., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 717-534-3405 and 800-745-3000.
Alison Krauss effortlessly bridges the gap between roots music and genres such as pop, rock, country, and classical. She has released 14 albums and has sold more than 12 million records to date. With 27 wins, she is the most awarded female artist in Grammy history. She has received a multitude of other honors throughout her career, including nine Country Music Association awards and 14 International Bluegrass Music Association awards.
Krauss has also contributed songs to numerous films, including “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and “Cold Mountain.” Her 2007 platinum album “Raising Sand” with Robert Plant won six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and was followed by 2011’s chart-topping “Paper Airplane” with her longtime collaborators Union Station.
David Gray has established himself as one of the United Kingdom’s leading artists both at home and overseas with a 25-year career marked by critical praise, numerous accolades, and multi-platinum sales over the course of 10 album releases. The Grammy-nominated artist is known for his dynamic live shows, and the energy behind his concerts exemplifies his deep and heartfelt music.
Gray’s latest studio album, “Mutineers,” found the singer/songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a respectful relationship with his own history. The release was hailed by The Guardian, who declared that there is “a rare comfort in hearing an artist in pursuit of joy.”
The wristband policy will be in effect for this concert. Fans are permitted on the Hersheypark Entertainment Complex property beginning at 7 a.m. on July 14. Two hours prior to the on-sale, fans will be directed in front of Hershey Theatre box office, where they will be issued a numbered wristband.
