Josh Gates, Scott McCreery set for weekend shows at Luhrs Center
Shippensburg, Pa. — An avid explorer and a musician will headline separate shows at the H. Ric Luhrs Center Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Oct. 19, and Sunday, Oct. 20.
Josh Gates Live! An Evening of Ghosts, Monsters, and Tales of Adventure will take the stage on Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. Gates, who has a unique brand of humor, is chronicled on Discovery Channel’s hit-series Expedition Unknown as his global quest finds the truth behind iconic legends and archaeological mysteries.
Gates has explored more than 100 countries — from sweltering African deserts to the icy shores of Antarctica. A mysterious “Yeti” footprint recovered by Gates in the Himalayas has recently been displayed at the “Expedition Everest” attraction at Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Fla.
On Sunday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m., McCreery will perform country music with special guest Dylan Brady.
McCreery achieved new heights in the last year, earning two back-to-back No. 1 hits from his current album Seasons Change: the RIAA Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes” and the RIAA Gold-certified “This is It,” which stayed at the top of the charts for two weeks. He co-wrote all 11 songs on Seasons Change, including his new single “In Between.”
McCreery launched his recording career by making history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Since then, all four of his albums have debuted at No. 1 on a Billboard Albums chart, with current combined sales surpassing 3 million copies.
