Rick Springfield, Josh Turner are coming to Penn's Peak

Published March 30. 2013 09:02AM

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today for three concert events coming to Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.

Rick Springfield will be making a return appearance to the venue on Sunday, April 28. Tickets are $45 and $35.

The Summerland Tour 2013 starring Everclear, Live, Filter, and Sponge is set for Sunday, June 16. Tickets are $40 in advance and $40 on the day of the show.

Country sensation Josh Turner will be performing on Thursday, Sept. 26. Tickets are $42 and $37.

Springfield, who starred as Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime soap opera "General Hospital," is a native Australian.

Of his song hits, his biggest was "Jessie's Girl," which won him a Grammy in 1981.

The current tour is in support of his latest album, Songs for the End of the World. Springfield is still playing nearly 100 live shows per year.

After a wildly successful trek last year, Art Alexakis, frontman for the alternative rock outfit Everclear, announced today that he's bringing Summerland back for 2013, hitting more than 35 U.S. cities.

This time out, Everclear will share the stage with fellow rock bands Live, Filter and Sponge, for a decidedly edgier Summerland trek.

Turner has had numerous hits including "Would You Go With Me," "Long Black Train," and "Your Man."

He has sold more than five million albums and garnered four No. 1 hits . His song, "All Over Me," from Haywire also reached the top spot on the charts, making him one of only seven country artists to have two No. 1 hits in 2010.

A Hannah, S.C. native, Turner has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts/music. As a high school student, he had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts in the schools.
