Students will be able to use their original tickets, or have them re-printed by the Carrier Dome Box Office.

Update at 10:10 a.m. on April 18

The Carrier Dome Box Office reached out to the affected students, saying that the error ocurred "due to an error at the Ticketmaster processing center". Students will be able to use the original tickets that were shipped because the barcodes on them will still be active. If students are unable to get their original tickets, the Box Office will re-print them. This will, in turn, void the barcodes on the original tickets.

Per the email, this error only applied to floor tickets for Block Party.

Review: The "X" hitmaker headlined Phi Beta Sigma's State of Emergency concert alongside Nebu Kiniza.

For the price of $10, I saw 21 Savage. Yet, short and simple is how to describe 21 Savage’s performance in Goldstein Auditorium for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s State of Emergency concert. 21 Savage performed music from his recent collection, and although his music has earned him a huge fan base, his performance falls short. The rising artist seemed like he was there to play a few songs and get off the stage as he barely interacted with his audience, failing to produce the hype the fraternity’s previous concerts brought.

YouTube and HBO star Issa Rae discussed her rise on the Internet, her future ventures, and much more in an interview led by E! News correspondent Zuri Hall.
