Cartel at JMU!

Cartel, the first act in the Wilson Concert series, is set to perform THIS FRIDAY, September 24 at 8 p.m. By doing three Wilson shows we are breaking UPB tradition a little bit. Why not break it a little bit more?

For past Wilson shows we have received a variety of complaints ranging from not being able to stand on the floor in front of the stage to not being able to see from some seats.  Being an organization with JMU students’ best interests in mind, we realized it’s time to make some changes.

First, every ticket sold for the concert will be general admission. Instead of searching for your seats and missing valuable show time, now you may sit wherever you please. Whether you prefer the full and complete sound that comes from sitting farther away, or you prefer the up-close and personal approach that comes from sitting closer, we feel this is advantageous for everyone.

Now clearly, the earlier you arrive the better chance you have of getting your seat of choice. So for the most dedicated fans, we are allowing a limited number to stand on the floor area right in front of the stage. If you are one of the first 75 people in line, you will receive a wristband to stand in this coveted area at no extra charge. Wilson Hall, being a place of JMU business, cannot have people lined up throughout the day so the line will begin at 5 p.m. sharp, the day of the show.

Unfortunately we cannot allow more than 75 in the floor area, but remember any ticket can be as good a seat as you want it to be! Good luck!

Tickets are available for $15 with a JAC and $17 for everyone else at the Warren Box Office and online at upb.jmu.edu

The Wilson Concert Series!

UPB is proud to announce our newest fall-semester concert series in Wilson Hall Auditorium featuring pop-rock artists Cartel, hip-hop sensation B.o.B., and pop singer Sara Bareilles!

At 8pm on Friday, September 24, the Wilson Concert Series will make its premiere with Cartel.  The band has toured the world over, from Tokyo to Toronto to Brisbane and Bristol, has had over 36 million MySpace plays, as well having their own MTV mini-series, Band in a Bubble, which chronicled the recording of their second album.  Cartel has also amassed coverage in Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, USA Today, and the New York Times.

The concert series will continue all semester long with B.o.B. performing on October 28th, and Sara Bareilles warming us up on December 2nd.
