On Friday, Ed Kowalczyk's familiar, distinct vocals will fill Penn State York's Pullo Family Performing Arts Center.

The former Live frontman will bring his I Alone acoustic tour to the area for a 7:30 p.m. show. Tickets are $29.

One of the founding members of Live, which cranked out several hits in the 90s and early 2000s, Kowalczyk is a 1989 graduate of William Penn Senior High School.

In 2009, Kowalczyk talked with FlipSide about growing up in York, forming Live and the band's two decades of success.

"We started when we were 13," he said. "That definitely lent itself to a solid foundation."
