7 Amazing UConn Spring Concerts (In Our Dreams)

Fetty Wap tickets go on sale in a couple of hours. While we all know Fetty is going to kill it, there are definitely a few acts we all secretly hope for, no matter how unrealistic it is that they would actually come to UConn.  This is by no means a comprehensive list, but they would all be pretty awesome.


Sorry, that was predictable, but she can’t be left out of this list.  Beyoncé would burn Gampel to the ground with her fierceness.  Bringing in Sasha Fierce is probably about five times SUBOG’s budget (or more), but a girl can dream, right?  BONUS: Jay-Z comes out for “Drunk in Love” and “Crazy in Love.”  BONUS BONUS: They ask me to babysit Blue Ivy backstage while they perform.   


An assortment of 90’s/early 2000’s alternative/punk bands playing their best hits.

Think about it- it would go something like this. Third Eye Blind opens with “Semi-Charmed Life” and follows it up with "Jumper". Then Sum 41 melts everyone’s faces with “In Too Deep,” and Jimmy Eat World plays “The Middle.” At some point, Yellowcard comes out and sings “Ocean Avenue,” and Simple Plan does “I’d Do Anything” and “I’m Just a Kid.” Good Charlotte plays “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and “The Anthem,” and Blink 182 finishes the night with “All The Small Things” and “What’s My Age Again?”  BOOM. All the drunk songs you sing at Ted’s karaoke night, but with THE ACTUAL BANDS THIS TIME.


Kanye West  

No one can deny that Yeezus would kill it at UConn.   Who knows, maybe he would even bring some Kardashians to cheer him on, or throw some free Yeezys into the crowd? At this point, it seems like Kanye needs to do as many gigs as possible to recoup his $53 million debt, so why not UConn?


An *NSYNC/Backstreet Boys Reunion Collaboration

I might lose any possible male readers I had with this one, but COME ON. THE NOSTALGIA. Everyone would be going NUTS.  When you were younger, it is likely you were forced to choose which one you liked best, but this concert will give you the best of both worlds.



Admit it. If you weren’t already, you are now a Belieber whether you like it or not. Songs like “Sorry” and “Love Yourself” have held starring roles in your pregames for the past two semesters- it’s time to see them live, waaaaaay cheaper than one of his regular concerts. Plus, you know that Justin would definitely stick around UConn and party with the students after the concert.


Biggie and Tupac

Not the holograms. FOR REAL.


NO ONE: We cancel the spring concert and SUBOG uses the money they saved to bribe NCAA officials into letting Shabazz, Boatright and Kemba become re-eligible for college sports, allowing them return to UConn and lead the current team to a fifth National Championship.

Because that’s what all of us really want, right?
