The Concert Committee is thrilled to announce the performers for the annual Spring Concert: Lupe Fiasco and Third Eye Blind. The concert will take place April 5 in Sojka Pavilion. The doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are going on sale for students on Feb. 15 at the Campus Box Office. The public will have access to tickets on Feb. 18. There are both floor and seat tickets available, each of which are $30 for students, and $35 for the public.

Lupe Fiasco is a hip hop/rap artist, while Third Eye Blind is an alternative band. Some of Lupe Fiasco’s best-known songs are “Battle Scars,” “The Show Goes On” and “Superstar.” Some of Third Eye Blind’s most popular songs are “Semi-Charmed Life,” “Jumper” and “Never Let You Go.”

“The committee was very excited to hear that we secured Lupe Fiasco and Third Eye Blind,” Concert Committee Chair Zack Beltran ’13 said. “After the disappointing cancellation of Avicii in the fall, we were looking for a concert that would appeal to a wide audience of students and provide a fun, exciting atmosphere. I think Lupe and Third Eye Blind both have lots of songs that students know, and appeal to a variety of musical tastes. Mixed genre concerts have done well in the past at Bucknell, and we’re looking forward to seeing many students on campus come out for the show. We’re also excited to have a show back in Sojka Pavilion because it really feels like a concert and has great sound quality.”
