Reigning American Idol to perform at Penn State York March 24

1/28/2009 —

Reigning American Idol winner, David Cook, is coming to Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) on March 24 at 7:30 p.m. as part of “The Declaration Tour – 2009.” Tickets go on sale Saturday, Jan. 31, at 10:00 a.m. 

This is Cook’s first solo tour to promote his debut self-titled album, released in November 2008 and is his first time on the road since headlining the American Idol season seven tour. Cook exclusively unveiled his tour dates on AOL Music’s PopEater.com on Friday, Jan. 23.
Cook entered the Billboard charts at number three with David Cook (19 Recordings / RCA Records). The Rob Cavallo produced album also debuted as the number one album on the digital album chart and is the best debut from an American Idol winner since 2006. The first single, “Light On,” dominated the AOL Top 40 radio chart with eight (nonconsecutive) weeks at number one. In late September “Light On” premiered on AOL’s music pop culture news site, PopEater.com, receiving over 1 million plays in less than week.

Rolling Stone Magazine deemed Cook “the most imaginative American Idol talent to date.”

Cook’s first single, “The Time of My Life” recently went platinum with over 1 million tracks sold. “The Time of My Life” is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show’s history. Cook is the 34th American Idol contestant to appear on a Billboard chart.

Cook kicked off 2009 by performing for troops during a USO tour. He visited seven different bases, singing songs off his self-titled album.
“The Declaration Tour – 2009” kicks off Feb. 13 in Tallahassee, Florida, and will continue nationwide hitting various college campuses and major venues.

Tickets at The Pullo Center are $29.50 for the general public or $12.50 for Penn State York students with I.D.  Students can purchase one ticket at the box office for the special $12.50 price.  For more information call (717) 505-8900, or visit http://www.pullocenter.psu.edu/.
