The University Program Board (UPB) is proud to present New Politics as this year’s fall concert performer! Come out and see the show on Friday, September 18th, in the Wilson Hall Auditorium. Doors will open at 7:00pm and the opening act will go onstage at 8:00pm. Be sure to get there early before the lines get long! The concert is general admission so the first people in line will get the first pick of seats.

Don’t hesitate—tickets are on sale now and going fast. Presale tickets can be purchased though under the University Events tab. There is a small service fee for purchasing tickets online; to avoid this you can also buy and pick up your tickets in-person at the Convocation Center. Tickets purchased before the concert are $16 for JMU students (you will need to present your JACard at the door) and $19 for the public. Tickets purchased at the door on the day of the concert will be $22 for students and $25 for the public.

New Politics is a rock band consisting of a trio from Copenhagen. The band has 3 albums, and notable singles include “Harlem,” “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” and more recently “Everywhere I Go” (featuring Kings & Queens). In 2014 the band embarked on their first headlining tour in addition to opening for popular bands such as Fall Out Boy, Paramore, and The Pretty Reckless. Their most recent album, Vikings, was released in mid-August.

The opening act for the concert will be COIN, a 4-person pop rock band based out of Nashville. The band’s leading single is entitled “Run,” and they have recently finished touring as a summer opening act for Walk the Moon.
