Students just hearing about nationally-recognized rapper and singer Kid Cudi’s short notice visit to George Mason University are out of luck.

Kid Cudi first started gaining recognition in 2009 after the release of his single, “Day N’ Night.” He has been nominated for multiple awards including an MTV Video Music Award and three Grammy Awards.

When the university announced An Evening With Kid Cudi, students rushed to the Center for the Arts box office in hopes of getting as many $7 student tickets as they could get their hands on.

When asked about the hot-selling tickets, Director of the Office of Student Involvement Lauren Long was very excited.

“Tickets went on sale Monday at 10 a.m. and were sold out by 2 p.m. on Tuesday. That’s 27 hours!” said Long. “However, since they were only available from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m., they were only available for 10 hours before they sold out. It was crazy!”

An Evening with Kid Cudi is scheduled for Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. at Concert Hall in the Center for the Arts.
