Kid Cudi will play the Convocation Center.
A little more than 5,000 tickets will be sold for the event, according to Heather Priest, assistant director of marketing for the Convo. Cudi was selected because he was a popular choice in a survey about who students would like to see, Priest said.
“We had an overwhelming response for Cudi and we decided to go for it,” Priest said. “We thought it’d be a great show for the community.”
Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday. NIU students get a $5 discount with a valid OneCard, according to a news release from the Convo.
Floor general admission is $40; all other tickets are reserved and are $35 or $25. Tickets can be purchased at the Convocation Center box office, Ticketmaster Outlets, Ticketmaster.com or at 800-745-3000.
Priest said she was unable to disclose how much the Convo will pay Cudi.
A special guest for the show is still to be determined. Priest said she was currently unable to say when that determination would be made.
