Delta Foundation Announces Troye Silvan to Headline New Pride Rocks PGH Concert

 

The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce that Capital Records recording artist Troye Sivan will kick off its new Pride Rocks PGH concert for Pittsburgh Pride 2018.

Pride Rocks PGH is a new multi-day concert event that will take place on Liberty Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh. Troye Sivan will perform on Friday, June 8 on the Pennsylvania Lottery Stage at 10th & Liberty Avenue.  The Saturday, June 9 concert headliner will be announced shortly.

Pittsburgh Pride is the largest event that celebrates the diversity of the Pittsburgh region specifically for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.  The event has been produced since 2006 by the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, the leading non-profit advocacy organization in Western Pennsylvania.  Pittsburgh Pride is the largest LGBT event in Pennsylvania and the 4th largest special event in Pittsburgh.

“We’re excited that Troye has chosen Pittsburgh for his very first Pride concert," said Gary Van Horn, Jr., the Foundation’s president. “He’s an amazing artist and a great role model who is living authentically through his music.”

Troye’s 2015 debut album Blue Neighbourhood, topped the iTunes charts in 66 countries. In January, Troye released “My My My!”-- the first single from his forthcoming album. He has also contributed a song, “Strawberries & Cigarettes,” to the soundtrack for Love, Simon, the first major studio film to focus on an LGBT teenage romance.

Earlier in his career, Troye was named one of the most influential teens by TIME magazine. His numerous awards include a Billboard Music Awards trophy and two GLAAD Media wins. 

Pride Rocks PGH is all-ages, general admission concert.  Attendees under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Proper government ID is required.

Pittsburgh Pride 2018 takes place June 1-10.  For a full list of events, dates and times, please visit PittsburghPride.org
