As you already know, Lupe Fiasco will perform outside of McDonough Gymnasium on October 30 at 9:30 p.m.
Tickets are already on sale online through Ticket Alternative, but will also be sold in Red Square, Vital Vittles, and Hoya Snaxa beginning this Tuesday. With a GOCard, the concert will cost $20 in advance, $25 at the door. (Everyone else will have to pay $25 in advance, $30 at the door.)
According to Andrew Malzberg, chairman of the Senior Class Committee, ticket prices were calculated by subtracting the sponsorship funds from the total cost, then dividing that number by the amount of expected sales. The SCC expects 4,000 tickets to be sold.
“We have no interest in making any profit off this event,” Malzberg wrote in an email.
The SCC will co-sponsor the event with the Georgetown Program Board, with funding from What’s After Dark and the Corp Philanthropy Committee. Although Malzberg declined to reveal how much the SCC will spend, last week the Hoya reported that the Corp contributed $2000 for the event.
Bill Ward, a senior in the College who was recently profiled by the Voice, and Honor by August, a rock group comprised of Georgetown alumni, will perform the concert’s opening acts. The event will open at 8:30 p.m.
