Jon Bellion to headline 2017 Homecoming concert
The Nov. 4 concert is presented by the Student Union Board and the Student Government Association, and is one of Bellion's last tour stops.
The Student Union Board and Student Government Association will host Jon Bellion on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, during Homecoming Weekend as the annual concert returns to the Colonnades parking lot.
A New York-based singer, songwriter, producer, Bellion has built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, with more than 445 million overall streams of his music worldwide to-date. Bellion released his full-length debut, The Human Condition, in 2016, with the album entering the Billboard 200 at No. 5 and quickly earning a spot on Billboard’s “Best Albums of 2016 list.”
Bellion's first single, “All Time Low,” was certified Gold, named NPR’s Top 100 songs of 2016 and is skyrocketing into the top 15 at Top 40 radio. The video for “All Time Low” boasts more than 71 million views and was shot during Bellion’s sold-out summer 2016 tour.
During 2017 Bellion has been opening for Twenty One Pilots throughout their North American arena tour including shows at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and two nights at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. His own tour, The Human Condition tour “Part Three,” begins at the Skyline Stage in Pennsylvania on Sept. 8 and makes one of its final stops at Elon University on Nov. 4.
The Student Union Board’s Concert Director, Colton Cadarette is looking forward to welcoming a national touring artist to Elon for one of the biggest Homecoming shows to date. “Heading into an exciting year at Elon, SUB knew we needed to bring an artist that would resonate with students like never before," Cadarette said. "We believe that through events like Show Up or Shut up in the Spring we have honed in on an artist that will truly create an experience our students are looking for- we couldn’t be more excited that the artist happened to be Jon Bellion.”
Tickets to the event are free for Elon students, faculty, staff and alumni and can be redeemed at the gate with a Phoenix Card or through the Alumni Office for individuals coming back to campus for Homecoming Weekend. For additional ticket information visit www.elonsub.org/jonbellion
