From a press release:

It was announced today that platinum-selling country music artist Gary Allan will be performing at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $50 for reserved seats or $55 for the pit, go on sale next Friday, July 8 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers, and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics, and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way.

Allan just re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, the label home for the entirety of his 20-year career. “Do You Wish It Was Me?” the debut single from his upcoming EMI Nashville release, hit the radio in June. The single was co-written by Allan, Jonathan Singleton, and Andrew Dorff and co-produced by Allan and Greg Droman.

His last album, “Set You Free,” topped the Billboard 200 Pop Chart, a career first for Allan. The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row) and produced his fifth No. 1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out of Rain.”

The California native released his first album, “Used Heart for Sale,” in 1996 and has since released eight additional studio albums, selling over seven million records; he has been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums and certified gold five times. Allan has five No. 1 hits on country radio, 14 Top 10 hits to his credit, and has amassed over 270 million total streams.

He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges,” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone. He sells out venues as a headliner from New York to Los Angeles and has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar, and People magazine.
