Ed Kowalczyk and his distinctive 1990s alternative rock voice will return to York in November for an acoustic show.

Best known for his former role as Live's vocalist, Kowalczyk has been making music solo since 2009. He is the voice behind hits "Lightning Crashes," "I Alone," and "Selling the Drama" - songs from the band's 1994 album "Throwing Copper."

Live formed in 1985 while Kowalczyk and bandmates Chad Taylor, Chad Gracey and Patrick Dahlheimer were students in York City schools.

Kowalczyk has booked a 7:30 p.m. show for Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Pullo Center at Penn State York.

Tickets, which cost $45 or $29, go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m.

The Pullo Center has announced four other upcoming shows.

Culinary comic Alton Brown will bring his Edible Inevitable Tour to the center on Wednesday, Feb. 19 next year. Tickets, which cost $56, go on sale June 7. The price for VIP tickets, which include a meet-and-greet with Brown, cost $85.

A Broadway musical based on the lyrics and songs of rock band Green Day is coming to the Pullo Center on Tuesday, Feb. 25. The show takes its inspiration from Green Day's album, "American Idiot."

Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday and cost $60 or $75.

On Monday, March 17, the performers of Celtic Nights, an Irish music and dance show, will take the Pullo Center stage. Tickets go on sale Thursday and cost $38 or $50.
