Pentatonix returns to Fair Grandstand on Saturday, August 31


Three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning and Daytime EMMY® Award-nominated vocal quintet, Pentatonix is coming to the 2024 Great Allentown Fair on Saturday, August 31. One of the most innovative, inventive, and inimitable vocal groups of all time, Pentatonix reimagines, reinvigorates, and redefines a cappella. Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Matt Sallee—have reached unprecedented heights, topping charts, selling 10 million albums worldwide, generating billions of streams, and performing everywhere from The White House and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to The Hollywood Bowl. Their catalog boasts back-to-back #1 albums on the Billboard 200, namely the gold-certified Pentatonix [2015] and platinum-certified A Pentatonix Christmas [2016]. Internationally, these albums performed equally as well with five albums being certified gold, platinum, or double platinum in Canada and ranking in the Top 40 albums six times in New Zealand. Their single, “Hallelujah” also achieved international success as a platinum-certified single in Canada and gold[1]certified in Germany and Switzerland. They notably made history as “the first a cappella act to win ‘Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella’ at the GRAMMY® Awards” in 2015 and 2016. A year later, they earned another GRAMMY® Award in the category “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” for their duet with Dolly Parton on her song “Jolene.” Following the release of Evergreen, which tallied over 100 million streams and earned the group a GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album,” Pentatonix embarked on a national Christmas arena tour, Pentatonix: The Evergreen Christmas Tour. Pentatonix’s album, “Holidays Around the World,” was released on October 28, 2022 and marked the group’s ninth Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Top Holiday Albums chart. In 2023, the group made history when they became the first a cappella group to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Pentatonix also earned a 2024 GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” for their 2022 release “Holidays Around The World,” marking the group’s fifth career nomination. On top of special performances at the Macy’s Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade and iHeartRadio Z100’s Jingle Ball 2023, Pentatonix recently concluded their biggest Christmas tour yet with the highly anticipated “Most Wonderful Tour of the Year,” selling over 200,000 tickets in 23 markets across North America. The tour was in support of their newest holiday greatest hits album, The Greatest Christmas Hits (RCA), which marked the group’s eleventh Top 10 entry on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and notably garnered more than 300 million streams and 37 million video views. The album also includes the cheerful holiday original and top 5 radio hit, “Please Santa Please.” This is the second time Pentatonix headlines the fair’s Grandstand.
