    SCRANTON — The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple will host Idol Kings: A Tribute to Journey, John Mellencamp and Tom Petty in their Grand Ballroom 8 p.m. Oct. 16. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the ongoing operations, restoration and programming at the center.

    “We don’t get to play many theaters,” Idol Kings member Michael Crow said in a news release. “I wish we could, but there simply aren’t many left. Playing a benefit concert for the Cultural Center helps to keep this opportunity available for our community, so we are pleased to do it.”

    Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Light fare and a cash bar will be available throughout the event. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the center’s box office or by calling 570-344–1111. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets.
