12/19/2007 —

Tickets are on sale now for country artist Bucky Covington in concert on Friday, Jan. 25, 2008, at 7:30 p.m. at Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center.   Covington, an "American Idol" season five finalist, adds a new twist to the notion that winning is everything. The eighth-place finalist on the hit TV show has now parlayed his "Idol" experience into a burgeoning country music singing career. His CD, Bucky Covington, released earlier this year on the Lyric Street Recording label, features his chart topping hit, “A Different World.” Clear Channel Music has named Covington one of the top five best of new music in 2007.  For more information on Covington, visit his Web site at http://buckycovington.musiccitynetworks.com/.

Jypsi, a foursome of young artists with an up and coming song on the radio, “I Don’t Love You Like That,” will play an acoustic set prior to Covington.

Tickets are $27 and $15. For tickets and information on the variety of programs available at the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center, visit www.pullocenter.psu.edu or call 717-505-8900.  The box office will be closed from Dec. 22 – Jan. 1 but tickets are available online at any time.  With seating for just over 1,000, the Pullo Center offers an intimate venue with full theatre capabilities.  The theatre opened at the campus in August 2005.
