Black Eyed Peas Tickets go on Sale March 30

The Hobart Student Government and William Smith Congress present hip hop sensation the Black Eyed Peas in concert, April 14 at the Smith Opera House. General admission tickets are $20 each and go on sale at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 30, at The Smith.

This multi-ethnic rap crew joined artists such as Black Star, Jurassic 5 and the Roots at the forefront of the cultural and musical renaissance in hip-hop at the end of the 20th century. The manifesto of Will.I.Am,, Taboo is clear – they aim to unite musical communities by serving up radio-friendly tunes while maintaining their hardcore integrity.

With distinct, cuttingly insightful, yet subtle lyrics fed over consistently catchy beats and eclectic arrangements, L.A.’s Black Eyed Peas have earned a high level of respect within the rap world, significant attention at college radio, and even the occasional crossover hit. Their third release “Elephunk” saw the addition of a fourth member – female vocalist Fergie – and the continued elevation of their style and skills, as the group journeys all over the map, never falling into a funk of boredom.

Tickets for the Black Eyed Peas will be available at the Smith box office and by calling 315-781-LIVE (5483) or toll-free 866-355-LIVE (5483). They will be $20 each. Seating is general admission. The Smith accepts MasterCard, Visa and Discover Card.
