SOLO Concert puts on first double headline show

Student Government Association’s SOLO Concert plans to have two headlining acts for the first time in Tech history.


Scotty McCreery and Russell Dickerson are scheduled to take the stage at the Hooper Eblen Center on Oct. 17.


“This is the first time that we’ve had two headliners, which is a really big deal. They’re both super awesome people and I know they’re going to put on a great show for everyone,” Courtney Fowler, SGA Executive Treasurer, said.


Every spring and fall semester, SGA sponsors the SOLO concert; students receive two free tickets with their eagle card and T number.


Many artists have performed over past years including Judah and the Lion, Dan + Shay and Neon Trees.


“We’re hoping to get a more diverse group of students. Like, Scotty McCreery was on American Idol. So even if you’re not into country music, your like ‘oh hey!’ I’ve seen him on TV, I want to go see him,” Fowler said.


Students on campus share how they feel about this semester’s selection.


“It’s not really my genre,” sophomore Odin Hale said.


“I’m excited about it. I’ve already seen Scotty McCreery in concert once. I’m excited to see him again, along with Russell Dickerson,” sophomore Dalenna Horton said.


Fowler says they expect a large attendance.


“We’ve doubled, almost tripled the amount of tickets we’ve given out this semester compared to last semester,” Fowler said.


Students can pick up their tickets at the distribution table in the RUC lobby through Oct. 11.
