Tickets for this year’s Spring Weekend concerts featuring Snoop Dogg and MGMT will be available Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. on Brown Student Agency’s online store at http://bsa.brown.edu, according to Abigail Schreiber ’11, Brown Concert Agency’s hospitality chair.

Tickets will cost $18 for each concert for Brown and Rhode Island School of Design students, who will be allowed to purchase up to two tickets per show. BSA will sell 3,000 tickets for each concert on Wednesday.

Currently, BSA can only sell tickets up to the capacity of Meehan Auditorium. Weather permitting, both concerts will be held on the Main Green, and BSA will sell 1,500 more tickets on April 22, the Thursday before the concerts.

Schreiber said she does not expect students to encounter any problems on BSA’s Web site when purchasing tickets, despite the expected high traffic.

Unlike last year, reduced-price packages will not be available. According to Schreiber this is partly to allow for a portion of tickets to be offered at reduced prices for students who qualify for financial aid.
