Eastern students, faculty and staff can purchase discounted Luke Bryan concert tickets starting Friday for his upcoming 2018 Farm Tour.

Tickets can be purchased for $25, instead of the original $61, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union Ticket Office and will be sold up until the Sept. 28 concert or while supplies last.

Ceci Brinker, the director of student life, said there is a limited number of discounted tickets available.

Brinker said Eastern received the tickets after a ticket representative from the Luke Bryan 2018 Farm Tour contacted the Student Life Office on Thursday with a promotional ticket opportunity to sell a limited amount of the general admission concert tickets.

She said the ticket representative said the tour was reaching out to several colleges and universities in the Midwest, with the opportunity to provide the discounted general admission tickets exclusively to their communities.

“For (Eastern), it is a great opportunity to provide Luke Bryan Farm Tour fans within the (Eastern) community with a chance to purchase discounted tickets to see in concert one of the top entertainers in country music perform in East Central Illinois,” Brinker said.

Luke Bryan is a country music artist with songs like “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset,” “Play it Again” and “I See You.”

The concert will be at 6 p.m. at the Atkins Farm in Pesotum, Illinois and will feature DJ Rock, Peach Pickers and Chase Rice.

Paid Parking is $10.00 and will open at 2 p.m. Gates to the Concert will open at 5 p.m. with the concert starting at 6 p.m.

A valid student, faculty or staff Eastern ID is required to purchase a ticket and there will be no refunds.

For more ticket information contact the Union Ticket Office at 581-5122.

About the Writer

My name is Analicia Carmen Haynes and I’m the Editor-in-Chief of this spectacular newspaper. I am a senior journalism major (praying to God that I graduate in May of 2019 because I seriously can’t afford this anymore) and I have come a long way since I started as a young, naïve and gullible freshman.

Though I complain sometimes about it, I definitely do a lot and I tend to think that I excel at what I do. I typically write about hard news but I adore soft features that allow me to be creative and I also shoot photos, take and edit video and I record and edit podcasts for the newspaper.

I enjoy meeting and talking to people and I enjoy finding something special about everyone. We all have a story that needs to be shared and that’s why I’m here.

Most importantly though, I fully support the First Amendment and will defend it with every fiber of my being so don’t tell me what I can and can’t do.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and Monty Python.
