Hip-Hop Diva Eve to Perform March 2


Eve is next up in the president's concert series.

Fresh from a tour with Ja Rule and a starring role opposite Ice Cube in the hit urban comedy Barbershop, hip-hop diva Eve will perform live in concert in Mary Woolley Hall's Chapin Auditorium on Sunday, March 2, at 8 pm. Eve's performance at Mount Holyoke is the fourth in a special presidential concert series that has thus far brought India.Arie, Dar Williams, and Sugar Ray to campus.


Eve, a Philadelphia native born Eve Jihan Jeffers, and formerly known as Eve of Destruction, is touring in support of her most recent album, Eve-Olution. One of the album's songs, "Gangsta Lovin' " features Alicia Keys. In addition to Keys, Snoop and Nate Dogg, Dr. Dre, and urban vocalist Truth Hurts also make guest appearances. Eve's first album, Ruff Ryders' First Lady, saw multiplatinum sales and established her as one of the most important rap artists of the time. Her sophomore effort, Scorpion, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album and an award for the Best Rap-Sung Collaboration with Gwen Stefani, as well as a Black Entertainment Television award for Best Female Rapper.


One thousand free tickets (one per student) will be distributed to MHC students beginning Wednesday, February 5, at noon at the Wilder Hall lower level information desk. To receive a ticket, students must present their MHC ID at the desk. A valid MHC ID must also be presented along with each free student ticket to enter the concert. Free tickets may not be sold nor given to non-MHC students. Members of the MHC community buying for others can purchase tickets for $20 (while supplies last) at the Office of Student Programs. General public tickets for the concert can be purchased at select local record stores, TixUnlimited in the student union at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (545-0412), and at the Office of Student Programs at 17 Woodbridge Street. All tickets are general admission, with limited seating in the balconies and an open floor at orchestra level.


For tickets or information, contact John Laprade at x2478.
