Independent hip-hop artist Mac Miller will play a free show for University of Arkansas students in Fayetteville on Thursday, Nov. 7 at Barnhill Arena.
The concert is another from the UA Office of Student Activities’ Headliner Concerts Committee, the same group responsible for bringing in the Flaming Lips, Kid Cudi, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, and others.
As usual, a limited amount of free tickets will be given to UA students as part of their pre-paid student fees. Prices for general public tickets have not yet been announced.
The Pittsburgh-based rapper’s independently released debut album Blue Slide Park debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2011. Miller is currently touring Europe with Lil Wayne in promotion of his new album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off.
Tickets will be reserved and distributed in three rounds, two for university students and one for the general public.
Students can reserve one free ticket each during the first round of reservations, beginning at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, through 11:59 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21. The first round of tickets will be distributed to students from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23 and Thursday, Oct. 24 in the Arkansas Union Living Room.
