The rescheduled date for Brock’s first Big Ticket Concert in nearly three years has finally been announced.
Students can expect to attend the event on Friday, November 18 at the Meridian Centre, located in downtown St. Catharines. The featured artist who will headline the concert has yet to be announced.
Brock’s annual event, which has been suspended for the past two academic years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is a staple of BUSU’s Badgerfest lineup. This year was no different, with students eagerly anticipating additional information about the event that has yet to be released.
The announcement of the postponed event follows BUSU’s earlier cancellation of the concert, which was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 10.
“In order to provide students with the best possible experience, our September 10 Big Ticket concert has been postponed,” BUSU said in an Instagram Story posted the week of the original event.
Students were then asked to stay tuned for a notification alerting of a later date for the event. Finally, more than a month after the original date was canceled, the Brock community finally has its answer.
In an Instagram post released last week, BUSU revealed the rescheduled date to their followers, while letting students know that the headliner will be announced soon.
“Turn on notifications because we’ll be announcing a HUGE giveaway soon that you won’t want to miss!” BUSU wrote in their post.
Although the headliner for the event remains unknown, there has been much speculation among students as to who will be the first performer in nearly three years to step onto the Brock stage.
In previous years, before the pandemic, students welcomed artists like American rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie in 2019, Canadian rapper NAV in 2018 and American rapper Desiigner in 2017.
Previous performers at the event have sparked many predictions within the Brock community, but whether Brock will feature a returning performer or a brand new performer is yet to be confirmed.
Despite all the speculation, students should anticipate an answer to their questions fairly quickly. Additional information regarding a prize for the event and a specific concert time is also expected to be released in the near future.
