UPDATED: Coming here: Big Boi, Kid Cudi, and Chip Tha Ripper, April 29 at Barnhill Arena

It’s official. The Kid Cudi and Chip Tha Ripper performance April 29 at Barnhill Arena we mentioned yesterday is confirmed, and as an added bonus, a member of the UA’s concert committee tells us that rapper, producer, songwriter and actor Big Boi will join them on the bill.

To be honest, we’re not sure if that’s the icing, or the cake. Either way, it sounds delicious.

University of Arkansas Headliners Committee member Bailey Moll confirmed the show, set for Sunday, April 29, and offered up a few additional details as well.

According to Moll, student tickets to the performance will be available to reserve via the Walton Arts Center’s website osa.uark.edu beginning on Saturday, April 7 at 10 a.m., and will remain available until April 13 (or until they sell out, whichever comes first).

Tickets will be free for students, and available on a first-come first-served basis. Moll said that students who reserve tickets will be required to pick them in the UA Student Union from April 16-18, and that student ID’s will be scanned at that time.

Walton Arts Center officials told us this afternoon that if any tickets are left after April 13, they will be made available for sale to the general public on Monday, April 23. The general admission ticket price has yet to be released, but we’ll add that information here once it becomes available.

Update: The University of Arkansas officially released some info on the show today.

Currently enrolled University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students can obtain free tickets in a two-step process.
1. Starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 7, students can reserve one free ticket online at osa.uark.edu, where they will find instructions to reserve tickets. Student online reservations will be open until Friday, April 13, at noon.

2. Students who reserved tickets can pick them up in the Arkansas Union Connections Lounge Monday through Wednesday, April 16-18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students must present their valid University of Arkansas student ID in order to pick up their ticket (The ID will be scanned). Only one ticket is allowed per University of Arkansas student ID. Students can pick up their one free ticket and may present another valid student ID to pick up another student’s reserved ticket. Both tickets must be reserved through the online process described above.

Students unable to pick up the ticket during the scheduled distribution times should email [email protected] no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, to arrange an alternative pickup option to avoid losing the reserved ticket.

The general public may be able to purchase tickets starting April 23, at 10 a.m., from the Walton Arts Center web site, but only if University of Arkansas students do not use all tickets. If public tickets are available they will cost $37.50 for the floor and $31.50 for general admission seats.
