Tickets for the William & Mary Charter Day concert featuring Third Eye Blind are now available online at web.wm.edu/amp.
The concert will take place at 8 p.m. Feb. 4 in Kaplan Arena at William & Mary Hall. Tickets are $15 with a valid William & Mary ID (limit one per valid ID) and $25 for the general public. Ticket prices will increase $5 ($20 with a W&M ID and $30 for the general public) on the day of the show.
Since the band formed in the early 1990s, Third Eye Blind has released four studio albums, including 2009’s “Ursa Major.” They are known for chart-topping songs including “Semi-Charmed Life,” Jumper” and “How’s It Gonna Be.” They’ve won a Billboard Music Award and received nominations for two American Music Awards.
The opening act for the 2012 Charter Day concert will be announced in the weeks leading up the event.
The concert will come a day after the College’s annual Charter Day ceremony, which celebrates the day on which William & Mary received its royal charter. Former U.S. Secretary of Defense and William & Mary alumnus Robert M. Gates ’65 will serve as this year’s keynote speaker at that ceremony, slated for 4 p.m. on Feb. 3 in William & Mary Hall. Gates will also be installed during the ceremony as the College’s 24th Chancellor.
