The classic pop group Three Dog Night returns to MPAC on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $39-$79.

Three Dog Night claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets. Boasting chart and sales records that are virtually unmatched in popular music, Three Dog Night had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top 10's, 18 straight Top 20's, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs.

The group's hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio, where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures. Songs like "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)," "Joy to the World," "Black and White," "Shambala" and "One" serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize their continuing popularity.

Three Dog Night maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of over 70 dates a year. The hit-filled concerts are performed for generation-spanning audiences by Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist) and Michael Allsup (guitar), Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums), Howard Laravea (keyboards) and David Morgan (vocals).

The band's now-famous name refers to native Australian hunters in the outback who huddled with their dogs for warmth on cold nights; the coldest being a "three dog night."

Three Dog Night recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of that time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others.
