Yung Gravy will be performing at this year’s Major Concert. CAPE announced the news at last month’s Drag Queen Sex Toy Bingo. The rapper has grown popular in mainstream media and is known for titles such as “Mr. Clean” and “Gravy Train.”
This year will be the first time the concert takes place outside of SNHU grounds.
“In the past, we have had our Major Concerts right on campus and in the gym,” said CAPE Vice President, Megan Rogers (’23).
The 2023 Major Concert will be at the SNHU Arena. This change allows the public to purchase tickets alongside students; however, Rogers wanted to make sure that the concert was still special for SNHU students.
“It’s cheaper for students, you can access your tickets through a different website,” said Rogers, “On Ticketmaster, it says ‘SNHU’s Major Concert.’ It’s still our special event.”
Tickets for students are available at SNHUtickets.com for $20, or at the door on the night of the event.
Phi Delta Theta member, Timmy Paul (’23), expressed his excitement for the concert. This will be Paul’s last major concert before he graduates in the spring.
“I missed out on the last couple [of] years for Major Concerts. To be around for this one is really good vibes,” said Paul, “It is exciting to see what a [Yung Gravy] show would be like live.”
Rogers went into detail about the process of picking and booking an artist for a Major Concert. It started over the summer with an Instagram poll.
“I thought it would be fun for students to have a little bit of a say [as] to who is coming to campus,” said Rogers.
Once the student body voted for an artist, Rogers began the booking process.
“We went through the whole contract and made sure everything was all set with that, and then we were finally all booked,” said Rogers.
The Major Concert is scheduled for March 4, 2023 at 7pm. Doors open at 5:30pm. Students looking for more information can follow CAPE’s Facebook and Instagram, @capeatsnhu.
