Lindsey Pavao is coming home.

And from the looks of it, the reception for the Sierra High School alum and former contestant of NBC singing competition “The Voice” will be more than warm.

When it was announced that she’d be returning to Manteca for a performance on Saturday, Aug. 4 – her first to a hometown crowd since making a deep run in the wildly popular show and winning over the hearts of hundreds of thousands of fans – tickets for what was supposed to be an intimate show at Main Street Café sold out within the first two hours of being on sale.

So when owner Jakkie Arellano got a call from Matt Sickler at The Emory – a banquet hall next to Hafer’s – telling her that the space was available if needed, she went with it.

As of Tuesday afternoon more than 200 of the allotted tickets had been swiped up.

“As of right now we’re sitting on about 46 tickets and we’d love to get those sold as quickly as possible,” Arellano said. “We’re excited about having an event like this. It’s going to be a special night.”

During her reign as a contestant on the show, Pavao was the talk of the town at coffee shops like Main Street Café and around water coolers after she’d perform – building a strong following as she advanced further and further as a member of R&B diva Christina Aguilera’s team.

Her unique style helped make her an instant fan-favorite – whether it was a hairdo that only she could pull off or her ability to take songs from other genres, put her own spin on them and make them musical gold – and sales from several of her tracks helped make her the highest grossing performer once tracks started appearing on iTunes.

With the proceeds from the concert – tickets are $15 – going to help cover the cost of recording her first full-length album, it could only be a matter of time before Pavao strikes the gold mine that many of her fans believe her voice can lead to.

Pavao’s parents have been longtime customers at Arellano’s café, and she says helping out is the least she can do.

“We would have friends of hers come in and give us updates and let us know how she was doing down in LA as everything was going on,” Arellano said. “I think that it’s amazing to have a hometown girl that’s on the verge of truly making it. She’s got fans all over the country that are dying to see her perform and we get a hometown show right here without having to go anywhere.

“It helps her and it gives us a show we’ll never forget.”

The Emory Hall is located at 1028 W. Yosemite Street next to Hafer’s Home Furnishings. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the first act will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. For additional information on tickets stop by Main Street Café at 1464 W. Yosemite Ave., or call (209) 825-2242.
