This will be the first concert in Death Valley in nearly 20 years. 

TigerPaw Productions and Clemson Undergraduate Student Government (CUSG) announced Wednesday that Jason Derulo will perform in Death Valley on April 16. Smallpools and an unknown ‘special guest’ will accompany Derulo. 
Student tickets for the concert will go on sale for students Friday at 10 a.m., and general public tickets will be available at 10 a.m. on Saturday. Ticket prices range from $55 to $61.
CUSG Vice President Shaq Thomas said at Monday’s Senate meeting that CUSG is receiving 120 free tickets.
Thomas also said that CUSG and TigerPaw Productions are excited to partner for the Spring Scene concert.  
“Through this partnership, we have been able to make the event bigger and better while hosting the first concert in Death Valley in almost 20 years,” Thomas said. “The experience has been great, and we look forward to future sponsorships and partnerships for the Spring Scene show in the future.”  
Students are divided on Derulo. Alexis Anthony, a food science major, is excited for the performance. “I think I’m going to get tickets because my birthday is the day before,” Anthony said. “It should be a lot of fun.”
Dennis Chan, a biological sciences major, likes that the concert will be in Death Valley but is less excited about the performer. 
“I’m not a big fan,” Chan said. “I liked some of his older music.”
Another biological sciences major, Amanda Crayne, likes that Derulo is the performer, but feels less confident about others.“No one really wants to go,” Crayne said.
Sheldon Swofford, a forestry major, was disappointed in the decision to have Derulo in the valley. 
“I don’t like Jason Derulo,” Swofford said “They should have gotten someone else.”
Dorothea Dinius, a psychology major, said that she would attend the concert if she had the money but “wish they had someone newer coming.”
 Tickets can be purchased at the Hendrix Student Center or
