EAU CLAIRE — Tickets go on sale Feb. 9 for a concert by David Cook — the rock belter who won the "American Idol" competition in 2008 — on Feb. 18 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the show in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center. Due to the intimate concert setting, only 750 tickets will be sold.

Millions of people fell in love with Cook while watching him make other people's songs his own week after week on the seventh season of the Fox TV series, "American Idol." One week after being declared the winner with a record-breaking 56 percent of the nearly 100 million votes cast, Cook rewrote chart history when 11 of his songs debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 chart — the highest number of new entries in a single week by an artist since the Beatles in 1964. In November 2008, he released his self-titled major-label debut CD, produced by Grammy Award winner Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock).

General admission tickets are $16 ($10 with a UW-Eau Claire student ID) at the Service Center in the East Lobby of Davies Center. The Service Center is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. Patrons can charge tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call 715-836-3727 or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free 800-949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to telephone charge orders.

A special advance ticket sale — for UW-Eau Claire students only — will take place Feb. 4-8. Tickets will be sold only at the Service Center windows, and buyers must present a valid student Blugold card. No more than four tickets will be sold to each UW-Eau Claire student during the advance sale. There will be no limit on the number of tickets that may be purchased beginning Feb. 9.

The concert is sponsored by University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
