'America's Got Talent' winner Darci Lynne Farmer
adds fourth Oklahoma City homecoming show
A fourth show has been added to Darci Lynne Farmer's homecoming stand later this month at The Criterion, 500 E Sheridan Ave.
The 2017 "America's Got Talent" winner will perform the fourth show at 7 p.m. Dec. 17 at the Bricktown theater.
As previously reported, the Oklahoma City-based singing-ventriloquist was initially booked for one show at The Criterion, but the slate was expanded to the demand for tickets from her hometown fans. The fourth show was added after the three previously announced dates - Saturday afternoon and evening performances on Dec. 16 and a Sunday matinee on Dec. 17 - all sold out.
Tickets to the fourth show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday via Ticketmaster.com or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
iHeartMEDIA is presenting the “Darci Lynne Homecoming Show," according to a news release, with local radio station KJ103’s morning show personalities TJ, Janet and JRod hosting.
Fellow "America's Got Talent" alumni Pelican212, a family band from Pensacola, Florida, will be special guest for Darci Lynne's homecoming stand.
As previously reported, Darci Lynne, who recently turned 13, emerged as a front-runner on Season 12 of "America's Got Talent" from the premiere episode, consistently wowing the judging panel, the television audience and seemingly the entire Internet with her big-voiced performances featuring her puppet pals. The Oklahoma native performs with an array of puppets, including Petunia the bunny diva, Oscar the awkward mouse and sassy senior citizen Edna Doorknocker.
Darci won the highly rated NBC talent contest on Sept. 20, earning the $1 million grand prize and a Las Vegas headlining opportunity. She performed her promised Vegas headlining stint last weekend at the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, where her original two-night stand was expanded to four due to demand.
The reigning "AGT" champion has made a couple of high-profile hometown appearances since winning the nationally televised competition, performing the national anthem before an OKC Energy FC soccer game and playing the halftime show for the OKC Thunder's season opener vs. the New York Knicks.
But her Criterion concerts will be her first standalone public performances in Oklahoma City since she won "AGT." As previously reported, the OKC shows also will precede her recently announced first theater tour in January and February.
Darci Lynne Farmer’s life changed when she won the 12th season of America’s Got Talent in September. Soon, fans will get to see the singing ventriloquist’s act live, as she has signed with United Talent Agency.
It’s easy to see why UTA wanted to add Farmer to their roster: The 13-year-old Oklahoma native’s finale performance garnered the most views and votes in the history of America’s Got Talent and her first official performance date -- Dec. 16 at the Criterion in Oklahoma City -- sold out in just six minutes. The venue promptly added two extra shows.
Farmer’s already established her status as a hometown hero, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. UTA already has plans for a television series, record deal and national tour.
