From alternative rock to hip-hop SHSU students rocked out at Johnson Coliseum for this year’s Sammypalooza, which featured Eve 6, The All American Rejects and Ludacris.
More than 3,000 students were in attendance.
It didn’t take long for the coliseum to be filled with the noise of screaming fans and music from Eve 6, but the body surfing and head rocking didn’t start until The All American Rejects played some of their #1 hits like “Swing, Swing” and “Dirty Little Secret”.
The crowd got quite a show as the lead singer Tyson Ritter threw water into the audience along with several water bottles and his guitar pick. The coliseum became even louder as top recording artist Ludacris came to the stage singing several of his hit songs that made the crowd go wild.
Sammypalooza was a great success as well as a great turnout, several students tweeted about the event @kidnamedkelley said, “Sammypalooza was awesome last night! Finally Sam Houston got someone worth coming to see. @Ludacris put on a great show. Period. “
@wally_tweets tweeted, “What an awesome concert tonight at #Sammypalooza!!! #SHSU sure knows how to take it downnn!!”
Both new and returning Bearkats had an unforgettable night and a great start to the new school year. This years Sammypalooza will be hard to top, but we will have to wait and see who will be visiting SHSU next time.
