2009 American Idol winner Kris Allen will be live in concert Jan. 18 at The Clayton Center.

Allen’s impressive talent and warm-hearted charm made him a favorite with judges and Idol fans alike, and those qualities shine brightly in his live performances. Called “irrepressibly buoyant” by critics, he delivers hook-filled pop melodies and heartfelt lyrics that explore the ups and downs of love. His hit single “Live Like We’re Dying” was released just months after his American Idol win, and sold nearly 2 million copies. He followed thatup with his recently released sophomore album, “Thank You Camellia,” which showcases the easy, lived-in richness of his voice.

Since winning American Idol, Kris has spent a lot of time on the road. He toured for 18 months after the debut of his first, self-titled album, playing headline shows, as well as opening for the likes of Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Barenaked Ladies and Lifehouse.

When he’s not on the road, Allen lends his talent and time to support arts organizations like VH1 Save the Music, Little Kids Rock and Donorschoose.org.

VIP tickets for the show are $75, and include seating within the first three rows and a private pre-show meet and greet. Reserved seating in all other sections is $30. Tickets may be purchased by phone at 919-553-1737, at The Clayton Center Box Office 10 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or at theclaytoncenter.com.
