175 B.o.B student tickets sold

While big-name B.o.B heads to St. Joseph for Missouri Western’s Spring Concert on Friday, April 25, ticket sales for the event are falling far short of the venue’s capacity. The concert will be held in St. Joseph’s Civic Arena, because Western’s campus does not have an adequate facility for a large-scale music event. The arena has a seating capacity of 3,800, and is located in downtown St. Joseph -- about a ten minute drive from campus. As of press time on Tuesday evening, ticket sales totaled approximately 750. On February 18, after the announcement of the concert lineup, 200 free tickets were distributed to students. Isaiah Collier, the assistant dean of student development, said that the free tickets were claimed within a few days. Since the distribution of the free tickets, Western has sold an additional 175 for $5 each. The fee for students is a new addition to Spring Concert policy, and was put in place to both hold students accountable for concert attendance and to increase revenue to continue to sign high caliber acts in the future, according to Tony Dougherty, vice president of WAC. The additional revenue generated from the fee amounts to $875. According to talentcompass.com, an event booking website, B.o.B costs $75,000 to book for an event. The Civic Arena itself also sells non-students tickets. As of press time, approximately 380 tickets had been sold by the arena, according to Kathy Brock, the Arena’s manager. Tickets are also available through ticketmaster.com for $45 each. Ticketmaster declined to comment on ticket sales figures, citing a policy against releasing that information. Opening R&B artist SoMo is set to kick off the show at 7:00 p.m. Students must present their IDs for concert entry with a student ticket.
