Timeflies and Chiddy Bang are set to make their mark at ISU at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 in Braden Auditorium for the fall semester concert sponsored by the University Program Board (UPB).
Presale tickets began Monday for ISU students with a valid ID card and will go on sale for the general public tomorrow via Ticketmaster. Tickets to the event can also be bought at the Braden Box Office, located on the first floor of the Bone Student Center.
UPB has been hard at work to make the dream of this performance on ISU’s campus a reality.
Jenna Cusumano, UPB’s center stage chairperson, said the UPB office worked with agents to get Timeflies and Chiddy Bang to put on a show in Braden Auditorium this fall.
Cusumano said ISU is one of three colleges that Timeflies and Chiddy Bang will visit during the Warning Signs Tour. The entire UPB office is excited to have them on campus, she added.
An immense amount of planning went into finalizing this major event, Cusumano said.
“The planning process has been an in-depth one,” she explained. “Planning started many months ago and ever since we have announced, we have been promoting around the community, on social media and on the campus a lot.”
Other campaign methods that the UPB office has utilized to promote the concert include chalking the Quad’s walkways, sending out mailbox stuffers and radio announcements.
Cusumano, along with the rest of the UPB office, is hoping to sell out Braden.
“[Selling out] would be wonderful. Timeflies and Chiddy Bang have a large following here at ISU as well as in the state of Illinois. We anticipate a very large turnout,” she said.
ISU students seem to be just as excited as UPB is about the upcoming event as social media networks have been hearing positive feedback since the performance was announced on Aug. 12.
Students wishing to attend the concert are encouraged to buy their tickets as soon as possible at the Box Office. Pit tickets are available for $35 and seat tickets can be purchased for $18. A valid Redbird ID can buy up to eight tickets at one time.
