 The College at Brockport's spring concert with Kesha, previously scheduled for April 28, has been rescheduled for this Sunday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The concert will still be held in the SERC and tickets you bought before, personal and guest, are still usable. Tickets are still on sale for $10 and the limited amount of guest tickets left are on sale for $25.

"Things like this happen all the time when you work with artists," Kali Slawinski, BSG Programming Director, said. "It just came down to a conflict with her scheduled tour." 

Slawinski said that Kesha will be touring other colleges, and like any other musical artist, her schedule is jampacked. Michigan State University will be hosting her for its spring concert on April 27, so it's possible MSU's date conflicted with Brockport's.

In an email sent Friday, Brockport Student Government Business Manager Tyler Brown said anyone who can no longer attend the concert will receive a refund, which can be discussed by  emailing him directly at tnbrown@brockport.edu.

"Let me know if you need to be refunded for a student ticket, guest ticket or both and also let me know whether you purchased your ticket online or at the box office," Brown wrote. "This information will help me get this processed more quickly. Please allow a few business days for me to get back to you with an update on your refund as there may be a large amount of people that I am responding to."

Kesha's concert will now be part of "Spring Fest" which will incorporate Eagle Day, held in Lot T, the lot next to Tuttle Athletic Complex, Saturday. Eagle Day will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., free of charge, with plenty of food vendors, exclusive T-shirts, photo booths, rock climbing and much, much more. 

"For those who can't go to the concert anymore because of the date change, I'm sorry," Slawinski said. "I wish it didn't come down to that, but we had no choice. We still want to give a show to the rest of the students. I hope it benefits everyone else who can attend."
