Get “Do Re Mi Fa So” excited for “The Concert Xperience 2020.”
Blackbear and Marc E. Bassy are on their way to Shippensburg University’s Heiges Field House to headline SU Activity Programming Board’s (APB) annual spring concert.
The concert will hit students Sunday, April 5 at 6 p.m.
Tickets will go on sale Friday and can be purchased at xperience2020.eventbrite.com or at the CUB info desk.
The price of tickets is $10 for students and $40 for the general public. After a month of selling tickets, the prices will increase by $10. Early access to the event costs $10 across the board.
APB managed to lower student prices from last year by $5 despite its constriction by an income commitment it has to make for SU’s Student Government Association. APB has to return $46,500 of its revenue to SGA every year.
Blackbear and Bassy will not perform alone, however. They are joined by singers sophomore Bella Irwin and junior Noah Steinfeldt, who will open the show. Additionally, senior Teddy Cannon will DJ at the event. They auditioned against several other students last November and members of the public voted to select them to open.
Blackbear hardly needs any introduction. He has worked with notable artists such as Pharrell Williams, Nick Jonas, Childish Gambino, Linkin Park and Justin Bieber, and his streaming hits, the platinum-selling “Idfc” and the double-platinum “Do Re Mi” (“Do Re Mi, I’m so f------ done with you girl”), speak for themselves.
Meanwhile, Bassy will present his signature blend of pop and R&B. He is a self-owned musician who has not signed with any record label. He is well-known for “You & Me,” “Die Hard” and “Morning.”
Concert coordinator Brittany Hillbish is spearheading preparations for the concert.
“Our goal is to give the students an ‘xperience,’ something that is much more than just a performance and we hope to achieve that this year as we continue to grow and build off of last year’s show and its success,” she said.
