We were looking to specifically do a rock show since it’s been rap for the past two years.’ ‘ Stoick said the rumors most likely began when she brought the possibility of Katy Perry’s performance to the Budget Review Committee (BRC). كيف خيارات الثنائية الشركات كسب المال In past years, the Springfest concert has been about five hours. Stoick said this year’ the show is planned to be about three and a half hours. The total amount of tickets available hasn’t’ yet been determined ‘- the capacity of Matthews will depend on whether of not the ice for Northeastern’s hockey team is still in the arena. Matthews can’ hold about 4,500 people, but the ticket sales will decrease by 400 if the ice is still intact, Stoick said. ‘ She said’ the ticket service has been revamped for this show. ‘ ‘We won’t have another Jon Stewart situation,’ she said, referring to the difficulty students had buying tickets for Stewart’s stand-up routine’ Oct. 17. ‘They’ve upgraded the system with new software.’ ‘ DJ Diplo will perform his own 30 minute sets before and after Guster’s performance, Stoick said.

Their show is absolutely amazing.’
