Last night, CAPE revealed rapper Fetty Wap as the 2017 Major Concert headliner. As of 10 a.m. this morning, all 1,500 tickets have been sold, twelve hours from the time they went on sale.
“This has never happened in the history of the major concert, that we have sold out a complete show in less than one day,” said Shannon Conway, CAPE concert chair and vice president. “CAPE has only sold out one other show in our history, and it was not even close to as immediate as this show… I couldn’t be more thankful to our students for showing us so much support, to the entire CAPE Executive Board for working with me through this crazy process, and to everyone who believed that this concert would be a hit.”
Senior Matthew Rubenstein was able to get a ticket to the show. “I heard last night at the reveal. I think it’s pretty cool. I’ve never been to any of our major concerts, so I thought this one was worth trying out.”
Not all students who were interested in going were able to get a ticket. Alana Van Houten, junior, said “I mean it’s cool, but it’s funny how it’s always the people that aren’t that famous. I’m still bummed that I didn’t get a ticket.”
“Today, I’ve been asked numerous times if I am excited for this show, my response, ‘Heck yeah I am!’… I hope the students are ready for what’s about to come, because I know I am,” said CAPE President Jessica Camera.
