Fetty Wap To Perform At BJC In February

Welcome to the Zoo, Penn State. 

The Bryce Jordan Center announced that rap superstar Fetty Wap will be coming to University Park as part of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour on Saturday, Feb. 13. Tickets will go on sale this Wednesday, December 16 at 10 a.m., and it’s safe to assume that they’ll be in high demand.

Presales through the LiveNation app and the Citi credit card are happening on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 12 p.m. that you can check out here. Seating for the show will be general admission, with tickets running at $39.50. Fans who want a front row experience should plan on arriving early. Discounted student tickets will be sold through the Student Account Manager, the Jordan Center, the HUB, the Eisenhower Auditorium, and the Downtown Theater. This limited number of tickets will be $10 cheaper than general tickets.

Fetty Wap has been on fire this year, releasing hit after hit. His most popular track “Trap Queen,” was released in 2014 and has garnered national acclaim ever since. The New Jersey-based rapper continued his high level of production by receiving similar national recognition for his songs “679” and “My Way.” Both landed on the Billboard Hot 100 top-10 list, making Fetty Wap the first rapper to have three songs occupy the top-20 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since Eminem did it back in 2013. Fetty Wap just released his debut album self titled Fetty Wap, which debuted as No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and has been nominated two Grammy awards.

It is impossible to go to a party without hearing at least one Fetty Wap jam, so expect a staggering turnout for the February show. With Lil Wayne also slotted to play at the BJC in February, the new year should be a fun one for rap fans within the Penn State community.
