DONNIE IRIS TO CELEBRATE 75TH BIRTHDAY
WITH SHOW AT PALACE THEATRE ON FEBRUARY 3

The iconic Pittsburgh singer will celebrate turning 75 with a live performance with his band The Cruisers -- along with presentations, guest appearances and other surprises.

Pittsburgh, PA -- (November 7, 2017) -- Rock musician Donnie Iris, best known for his number-one hit “The Rapper” with The Jaggerz in 1970 and many great songs with Donnie Iris and The Cruisers during the 1980s, will celebrate his 75th birthday with a concert presented by 102.5 WDVE at the Palace Theatre in Greensburg, PA, on

Saturday, February 3. Tickets for the special show will go on sale this Saturday --November 11 -- at 10:00 a.m. via TicketMaster.com and the Palace Theatre box office.

In Pittsburgh, Iris is an icon the city is proud to call one of its own. With his band, The Cruisers, he released five albums during the first half of the 1980s: Back On The Streets(1980), King Cool (1981), The High And The Mighty (1982), Fortune 410 (1983), and No Muss No Fuss (1984). Those records include scores of hits and fan favorites -- such as: “Ah! Leah!” “I Can’t Hear You,” “That’s The Way Love Ought To Be,” “Love Is Like A Rock,” “Tough World,” and “Do You Compute.”

Donnie Iris and The Cruisers have continued to sell out shows well into the 21st century, which speaks volumes about the enduring quality of the music and Donnie’s showmanship. The band’s most recent offering, entitled Ellwood City (in honor of Donnie’s hometown), was released in May of 2006. It includes great songs such as “River of Love,” “Little Black Dress” and the title track -- “Ellwood City.”

“This show is going to be an absolute blast,” Iris said. “Me and the band -- Mark Avsec, Marty Lee Hoenes, Paul Goll and Kevin Valentine -- are really looking forward to celebrating my 75th birthday with all of the fans who have followed us over the years.”

Fans can begin to take part in the celebration right away on the Donnie Iris and The Cruisers Facebook page. There they can interact with each other by sharing photos and memories they have from seeing this Pittsburgh legend perform live over the last 50 years.
