Andrew Allen announces post-holiday show

Local pop star to show some love to his hometown in concert Jan. 21

Andrew Allen is back on home turf and is headlining a concert at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Jan. 21.

Between appearances around North America, and recording a new album, Vernon’s Andrew Allen has had little time to visit his hometown.

Well that’s about to change.

The sunny singer-songwriter is putting an end to the January blahs with a show at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Jan. 21.

“The last time I had the opportunity to play a hometown show was last year’s fundraiser for the Santa Toy Club with Carly Rae Jepsen, which was an absolute blast, but far too long ago,” said Allen. “It’s exciting to be back playing in the town that most of the songs were written, and I’m definitely up for adding a lot of local flair to this one. It’s gonna be a very fun show, and I’m very much looking forward to being home.”

Known for his energetic and interactive performances, Allen has reason to celebrate with his local supporters; he has had an epic year.

Signed by Epic Records a year ago, Allen has been enjoying the success from his monster hit, Loving You Tonight, which was played on radio all over Canada, hit the top 30 adult contemporary charts in the U.S. this summer, and recently made an appearance on the soundtrack for the film Abduction, starring Taylor Lautner, which was released in September.

Besides playing gigs all over North America, including supporting sets with the likes of Bruno Mars, Barenaked Ladies and One Republic, Allen played a private show to the red carpet crowd at Abduction’s film premiere in L.A.

His other hit single, I Wanna Be (Your Christmas) hit the Canadian top 10 holiday charts last year, and is still being played this season on radio across Canada.

Allen also has a new single out, I Want You, which will be on his upcoming record, being produced by Vancouver’s Ryan Stewart.

Tickets to see Allen at the Performing Arts Centre Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. are $20, $15 ages 12 and under, in advance or $25 at the door, available at the Ticket Seller box office in the centre. Call 250-549-7469 or order online at
