Tony Lucca, second runner up this past spring on NBC’s “The Voice,” will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Pittsburg State University. Lucca’s performance, in Gorilla Village, just east of Carnie Smith Stadium, is sponsored by the Student Activities Council.
Although Lucca’s most recent fame is tied to his performance on “The Voice,” he has a long list of credits as a musician, composer, producer and actor.
His songs have been featured on TV's "Friday Night Lights," "Brothers & Sisters," "Shark," and "Felicity" and in Kevin Costner's feature "Open Range." He has been seen on E! Entertainment Television and A&E, and he has performed numerous times on NBC's "Last Call With Carson Daly."
In 2011, Lucca portrayed himself on NBC's "Parenthood," performing his song "Like Love." Over the course of his career, Lucca has shared stages with ‘N Sync, Marc Anthony, Macy Gray, Johnny Lang, the late Chris Whitley, Sara Bareilles, and Tyrone Wells.
Lucca’s entertainment career started when, at the age of 14, he was selected for the “Mickey Mouse Club.” Over his career, Lucca has recorded eight albums and performed in nine movies.
