  • Concerts at U of I

    The University of Illinois is a school with top tier academics, outstanding student organizations, and nationally ranked athletic teams. What more could we have to attract such great students? Amazing concerts every month! We have already seen some incredible artists on campus this semester, and the best are yet to come (in my opinion). Last weekend, Death Cab for Cutie graced the stage of Assembly Hall on Saturday night and Lupe Fiasco performed Sunday night. Girl Talk will be here in two weeks as part of the Victoria's Secret Fighting Illini Fest. The range of artists and other performers that come to Champaign is endless. I personally enjoy both hip hop and country music, strange combination I know, but performers of both genres have been well represented Assembly Hall. In the past few years I have been on campus, the best concerts in my opinion have been Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, and Rascal Flatts. I am most excited though for Drake to perform on November 13th. That weekend is Dad's Weekend here on campus. I could not ask for a better weekend full of hockey, volleyball and football games, tailgating, and spending time with my dad, culminating with what I hope to be a concert that tops my list.
