‘Bad and Boujee’ Fall Concert 2017

Megan Hays, Senior Writer

With over 3,000 people in attendance, the University Concert Committee declared the 2017 Fall Concert to be a success.

The concert went incredibly! Thanks to Public Safety and Bucknell Facilities, the show went very smoothly. Huge shoutout to Migos, Cheat Codes, and all of the concert-goers for making it such a fun and memorable night,” Production Chair Graham Gilliam ’19 said.

After an opening set by Cheat Codes, Migos took the stage and played their hits including “Slippery,” “Bad and Boujee,” “Fight Night,” and “MotorSport.”

The Concert Committee arrived at Sojka Pavilion at 7:45 a.m. on Nov. 11 to begin setup. After the production equipment was moved off the trucks, the team assembled the stage, lights, and sound equipment. They prepared the dressing rooms for the artists, had a quick break, and then started ticketing and wristbanding concert-goers when the doors opened at 7 p.m.

“It’s an amazing process to see such an elaborate setup come up and down within 24 hours,” Dean of Students Kari Conrad said, giving a special thanks to the Facilities team for working hard to get the venue ready and then cleaning up for the basketball game held the next day.

The Concert Committee had the opportunity to meet and take a photo with Migos at the end of the show.

“It’s very exciting meeting someone with as much fame as these guys and realizing they are just people like us,” Executive of Production William Frost ’18 said. “At the end of the day we heard 45 minutes of a great Migos show.” 

Hip hop artist Cardi B was also in attendance at the show, supporting Migos as they performed.

“Overall, I think students were very pleased with both acts and liked the mixed genre nature of the show. Perhaps many would say they wish Migos would have performed a bit longer,” Conrad said.

While some students echoed that they wished that Migos had performed for a longer time, others were still impressed with the quality of the show.

“I had a great time and I thought the energy of the show was really great,” Rebecca Stanziale ’20 said.

“I enjoyed the lighting and the overall atmosphere, as well as the variety of songs that Migos played,” Mary Weinstein ’19 said.

Numerous different offices on campus are involved with the production and contribute to the success of these shows, including Public Safety, Facilities, Athletics, Events Management Office, CAP Staff, Dining and many others.
