Musical artist Jay Sean will perform in the M.A.C. Center Feb. 25 along with Kent State alumnus DJ $crilla.

Tickets are on sale as of today at all Ticketmaster outlets. Student tickets are $10 and general admission is $20.

Sean’s songs include “Down” and “Do You Remember.” $crilla’s songs include “So Digital” and “What it is Tho.”

The Undergraduate Student Government Programming Board is sponsoring the concert.

Programming director Mike Szabo said the feedback he has heard so far has been positive.

“Jay Sean is one of the bigger artists and is exploding on the music scene right now,” he said.

Szabo expects at least 2,000 tickets to be sold and is hoping for a sellout as Sean, a British artist, continues to make more of a presence in America.

This is the first musical artist USG has brought to campus this school year. Szabo said the programming committee faced budget and contract negotiation problems with performers last semester, so the committee decided to save the money to bring bigger performers this semester.

Szabo said to look for another performer, more comedy acts and FlashFest later this semester.
