International disc jockey sensation Avicii will play the West Virginia University Coliseum Sept. 20.
The Swedish DJ —who is well known for his hits "Seek Bromance," "My Feelings for You" and "Silhouettes" — has rapidly become one of the world’s premier musical acts, and concertgoers can expect an energetic performance as he takes the Coliseum stage.
"Avicii is a world-class performer and a much-respected artist in his craft," said David Ryan, WVU Arts & Entertainment public relations specialist. "As one of electronic dance music’s biggest names, audiences are in for an amazing show."
Avicii has headlined Ultra Music Festival alongside legendary pop artist Madonna and has also collaborated with Ralph Lauren’s "Denim and Supply" campaign, which proves he belongs at the top of today’s musical landscape.
Perhaps more impressively, Avicii is a self-taught DJ and only 22 years old. Through this exceptional ear and sense of melody, he has gone from the bedroom to the big stage.
His blitz of the music industry cannot be attributed to an overseeing songwriter or management company; it rests solely on his hard work and dedication.
These talents will be on full display Sept. 20, and WVU Arts & Entertainment is pleased to offer reasonably priced tickets for students interested in attending the show.
"Students can get tickets starting at $14, which is an incredible deal," Ryan said. "We’re pleased to bring a world-famous, internationally recognized act and make it so accessible to students."
The opportunities do not end there, though.
In addition to the discounted ticket prices, WVU Arts & Entertainment will be giving away a pair of tickets at its table outside JACS in the Mountainlair today and Friday.
For those who are typically not on the downtown campus, a pair of tickets will also be given away Friday evening at the Evansdale cafe.
If you decide to purchase tickets to the event, hang on to the stubs: WVU Arts & Entertainment has offered yet another special deal to assist students looking to catch Afrojack at the Morgantown Event Center Nov. 5.
"Avicii concertgoers should keep hold of their tickets to claim a special $5 discount on tickets to Afrojack, which go on sale Monday at 10 a.m.," Ryan said.
With a world-class performer on hand and plenty of special deals courtesy of WVU Arts & Entertainment, there is every reason to catch Avicii Thursday evening at the Coliseum.
Tickets can be purchased via ticketmaster.com or via phone at 304-292-SHOW.
To take advantage of the student discount, students must present a valid ID at the campus box office.
