ASHLAND, Ky. — The $1 million winner of “America’s Got Talent” is coming to the Paramount, Tuesday, Dec. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

This 37-year old has captured the hearts of America with his down-to-earth nature and incredible voice and just last week performed at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

Tickets to his Ashland performance are $30, $40 and $45 and will go on sale to the public, Tuesday at 9 a.m. in the Paramount box office by calling 606.324.3175 or online at

    If tickets go on sale Tuesday morning, how is it that the show was sold out 2 days ago? I read in the Herald Dispatch the same date of sale, so I think the Paramount should explain this to the public. I was very upset to log on and find out it was already sold out. A second show has been scheduled for the next night, and tickets are already availble for purchase. Had I not randomly looked at the PAC website, I would have missed out on the second show as well.
