WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Mac Miller will headline the Lycoming College spring concert scheduled for Thursday, April 11, at 8 p.m. in the Recreation Center. The event is sponsored by the College’s Campus Activities Board.

Miller’s first album, Blue Slide Park, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2011 and was the first independently distributed debut to take the No. 1 spot on the Billboard albums chart since 1995. He will perform at Lycoming after completing a European tour in March with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. Miller also is featured in a six-episode reality series titled Mac Miller & the Most Dope Family, on MTV2.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Lycoming to continue its long tradition of bringing top national acts to campus,” said Larry Mannolini, Lycoming’s director of student programs and leadership development. “We are very excited about this show and we hope that our students and the community will come out to enjoy a great concert from an incredible performer.”

CAB will offer one free ticket to each Lycoming student who has paid the College’s student activity fee, a practice that is extremely rare among colleges and universities that host major campus concerts. The concert is funded by the Student Senate of Lycoming College.

Tickets will go on sale on Monday, March 18, at noon. The public ticket price will be $20. In addition to buying tickets at Lycoming or charging by phone on the College’s ticket hotline at 570-321-4056, tickets can be purchased with cash at the Dairy Queen in South Williamsport.
