All-American Rejects set sights on the Skydome
Want to know a “Dirty Little Secret?”
Following the results of the January ASNAU Spring Concert Survey, the NAU student body has officially selected rock group All-American Rejects for the “23 Fee” Concert. Out of the 5,377 tallied votes, 932 were in favor of bringing the All-American Rejects to Flagstaff. Kid Cudi placed second with 851 votes.
In a formal announcement, ASNAU President Blaise Caudill stated:
“With over 3,000 students voting in a period of 2 days, the survey results showed students wanting to bring the All-American Rejects. The bid was sent forward; their agents were quick to reply and the concert date was booked.”
The All-American Rejects will be performing live at the Walkup Skydome on March 31. Their opening act has yet to be officially determined. Admission is free to all NAU students. Tickets will become available on March 25 at 8 p.m. at the NAU Central Ticket Office.
Hailing from Stillwater, Okla., the All-American Rejects first emerged onto the national music scene with the release of their self-titled debut album in 2003. The rock group then released Move Along in 2005, which produced several chart topping tracks including “Move Along,” “Dirty Little Secret,” and “It Ends Tonight.” Their most recent musical release was 2008’s When the World Comes Down. They are currently laboring in the studio recording their upcoming album Kids in the Street, due to hit shelves in late March.
The ASNAU 23 Fee was implemented in Fall 2010 following approval by NAU student voters in a Fall 2009 survey. It is the only completely student-controlled fee on campus. Last year, money from the 23 Fee helped bring popstar Ke$ha and rapper Dirt Nasty to NAU. The fee has also contributed to extended library hours, additional student club/organization funding, 2011’s year’s Spring Fling and SnowJack Express.
Additional artists on the ballot included Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Mac Miller, Pitbull, Avicii and Wiz Khalifa.
