Grammy-nominated Roc Nation/Columbia artist J. Cole is scheduled to appear in concert at 8 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Sports Center.
J. Cole’s Campus Consciousness Spring 2012/The Sideline Story Tour will feature special guest Big K.R.I.T. The Campus Consciousness Tour is a project of REVERB, which aims to educate and mobilize students to take positive action for the planet, while keeping the environmental footprint of the tour itself to a minimum.
Cole’s debut album “Cole World: The Sideline Story earned” him a Best New Artist Grammy nomination and sold 217,000 copies in its first week to become the number one album in the country. The album, which is now certified Gold, includes the Platinum single, “Work Out.”
Coming off a sold-out 75+ date world tour last year, Cole is headlining college campuses throughout the spring saying, “My music gives me a platform to reach a lot of young people. I’m happy to be partnering with Reverb to engage my fans and hope they’ll get on board with these positive environmental messages.”
There will be daytime activities for students prior to the concert at University Square.
General admission tickets are available for sale at www.TicketWeb.com for $30. Student tickets are $12 and are being sold in the Student Affairs Office.
