What are you waiting for? Neon Trees scheduled to perform at Elon

Students are already chomping at the bit to learn who the artists for this year’s popular Spring Show are going to be.

Unfortunately, the announcement is still weeks away. The Student Union Board promises a reveal event like no other during the Feb. 5 men’s basketball game versus Appalachian State University.

There is limited information surrounding who the opening and main acts will be, and only certain people within SUB know the full details. But, Neon Trees, an electric rock quartet from Provo, Utah, has announced on its Facebook page and its band’s website a 2011 tour stop at Elon University.

Neon Trees was a contender in the Spring Show survey released this fall for an opening act slot for a still-unknown featured performer. The stop is on Friday, May 6, the same day as the Spring Show.
SUB President My Nguyen and adviser Bobby Dunlap, assistant director of student activities, both said the organization cannot comment on the bands selected for the Spring Show because of technical and legal reasons.

“The official word from SUB is that we will give no comment regarding the actual artist or artists until the day of the Spring Show Reveal,” Nguyen said in an e-mail exchange.

But for Neon Trees fans, regardless if the band is coming for the Spring Show or not, a stop in Elon on the tour is more than enough.

UPDATE 1/31/11

Phoenix 14 News reported on Jan. 21 that the mashup band Super Mash Bros. will also be visiting Elon on May 6. The website songkick.com states this date.
