Three Dog Night, one of the most prolific vocal groups of the 1970s, will perform at the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall in Munhall on Feb. 19.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Nov. 30 at 877-4-FLY-TIX, ticketfly.com and librarymusichall.com.

Tickets will be $67-$77, with a limited number of Gold Circle seats available for $95.

Three Dog Night is celebrating nearly five decades in popular music. From 1969 through 1974, the group boasted Top 10 hits with songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One.”

The band still maintains a year-round touring schedule of more than 70 dates a year, with a lineup that includes Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist), Michael Allsup (guitar), Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums), Howard Laravea (keyboards) and David Morgan (vocals).

Three Dog Night had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including three No. 1 singles, 11 Top 10’s, 18 straight Top 20’s, seven million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs, according to a release.

Three Dog Night recorded music by many new songwriters of the 1970s, many undiscovered at the time, including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton, the release says.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
