Tickets Still Available

ViCE informed Mads earlier tonight that the tickets available to the public (on Ticketweb and Ticketmaster) will now go on sale on Wednesday of next week at 3:30pm. This is in an effort to make it easier for Vassar students to get these tickets.

To our knowledge, 100 tickets will be going on sale to the public, costing $22 each.

The tickets were originally to go on sale in a few hours (Friday morning).

UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion and misinformation. 100 tickets are going on sale, not 1,000. 100 tickets.

UPDATE #2: For those of you who are critical of the choice to use the west side dining hall...This space is the second largest indoor space that is available on that day. The first space is the Chapel, but this obviously would not have worked because of the seats. Walker was not available, and changing the date of the concert was not really an option.

ViCE tells Mads that successful concerts have been held in the dining hall int he past - Tito Puente, George Clinton and Parliment Funkadelic, Digable Planets and De La Soul.

So don't worry!

What I heard from someone who's on ViCE was that only 100 tickets are going on sale to the public.... I don't think one side of the DC can hold 1,800 people.....

Also, another ViCE member told me that 1,000 would be sold total....

Ya - sorry guys - just the 100 additional tickets...

And again, unfortunately this is the largest space the college would give us.

we had diplo on the other side of aCDC a coupla years ago and it was probably the most fun i've ever had at one of these events.

So instead of just selling those tickets to Vassar students at the Vassar student price, those of us who got sold out now have to pay an extra $8, plus service charges from ticketweb.com. I don't see why anyone would think that's the best option, except to get more money for VICE. But this is a Vassar concert, and Vassar students should have a chance to buy all the available tickets.

ViCE has a contractual obligation to sell public tickets.

more money for vice = more concerts for us

more money for ViCE = being able to put a concert on with fucking MIA! She's gotta be at least like 50 thousand.
