This Friday T-Pain will be preforming for free at the University of Florida’s Big Orange Festival in the Reitz Grand Ball Room.
Ticket are available for pickup tomorrow at the 2nd floor registration desk in the Reitz Union. Students must have their Gator1 ID and can pick up one additional ticket. There will be no bags allowed at the event so plan accordingly.
There will be a line for students who didn’t receive a ticket on Friday, but students with tickets will be let in first.
T-Pain is reminiscent of the golden days of middle school dances. I can remember his hit single “Bartender” playing as I awkwardly danced along to the beat of the song. I think the nostalgia associated with his music is what is going to make this concert so enjoyable. Although he has released new music recently, it just hasn’t dominated the charts the way that he did between 2005-2009. This doesn’t mean that his music is outdated though, it just means that this is going to be a bit more of a throwback concert.
Below is a video of T-Pain doing a show for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert. I think it accurately showcases his talent and his voice without autotune.
