Bellion to headline spring concert

by Staff Writer Ciera Golliver

The Student Government Association put rumors to rest at the Singing River Music Festival in the Mane Room March 17 by confirming Jon Bellion as the headliner for the UNA 2017 Spring Concert.

The Spring Concert will be April 29 in Flowers Hall.

“With Spring Concert this year, we really wanted to make sure that we represented more students,” said SGA Vice President of University Program Council Nic Smith. “Since Jon Bellion is a pop person, we wanted to make sure we got a rap person and maybe a hip-hop person as well. We are just trying to cover more genres to represent more of our students.”

Tickets will be available to students the week after Spring Break in the Gulliot University Center Atrium. Tickets are free to students with a valid Mane card, Smith said.

SGA is still unsure when tickets will go on sale to the public. Non-student tickets will cost between $30-40, Smith said.

SGA is looking to schedule two other artists from a range of genres as opening acts, but they have not confirmed anything yet nor would release any potential names. SGA made one artist an offer, but the artist has not approved the contract yet.

SGA will inform students as more acts are confirmed, Smith said.
