Black Eyed Peas & Nappy Roots Draw Small Crowd

Joe Bugbee of Bowling Green News was on hand for the and the concert at Anderson Arena for the annual UAO homecoming concert on October 4th. He writes, “The University Activities Organization announced that approximately 1,500 tickets were sold, but only about three-quarters of those ticket holders actually showed up. The crowd, however small, rose to its feet when Nappy took the stage around 8:30 p.m. and for the remainder of the show, only a handful of people showed any hint of excitement.” And the reaction wasn’t much better for the headliners. Bugbee added, “The energy escalated ten-fold when the Black Eyed Peas came out, saving the face of UAO, and thus saving the day. They were greeted by a half-interested crowd, many who stayed for only a song or two before leaving… By the time the Peas went on stage at 10 p.m., nearly half of the crowd had left. By the time the Peas played an impressive and awe-inspiring encore, the crowd that remained was mentally and emotionally drained, victims of pure musical drama at its highest and most rewarding.”
