The Lycoming College Campus Activities Board (CAB) is proud to announce that it will be hosting DGC/Interscope Records recording artist The All-American Rejects. The show will be held in Lycoming College Keiper Recreation Center on Friday, April 22 at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m.
“In researching possible acts for the show, CAB has taken into consideration the wide variety of music interests of the student body. The result of our labor is a truly exciting act for this year’s major concert,” said Larry Mannolini, director of the Office of Student Programs and Leadership Development at the college.
The American rock band is best known for its first international hit single “Gives You Hell” which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and went on to go 4X multi-platinum in sales. The single also peaked at #1 on iTunes and was the fifth highest downloaded song of 2009. Four million copies were sold in the U.S. alone.
In 2003, The All-American Rejects released a self-titled platinum debut followed by the double platinum “Move Along” in 2005. Their fourth studio album Kids in the Street was released in March 2012 by Interscope Records. Most recently, they released the hit single “There’s a Place,” which was featured in the major motion picture Miss You Already.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Lycoming to continue its long tradition of bringing top national acts to campus. 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,” Mannolini said.
This year CAB is proud to announce a community partnership with the Pennsylvania College of Technology in the efforts to bring a musical act to the Williamsport Area. Among other things, the partnership will provide a handful of Penn College students the opportunity to assist in the planning and implementation of this year’s show.
CAB is pleased to once again offer one free ticket to each Lycoming College student who has paid the student activity fee, a practice that remains rare among colleges and universities that host major campus concerts. This concert is funded by the Student Senate of Lycoming College and Pennsylvania College of Technology.
Tickets will be available to the general public beginning March 28. The cost is $20 for the general public and $15 for Pennsylvania College of Technology Students. Ticket purchases by credit card can be made at www.lycoming.edu/concert or by phone at 570-321-4056. Cash ticket sales will be available at the Dairy Queen in South Williamsport. Cash or credit sales will be available at Penn College, Campus Center Information Desk.
