SUA brings Michelle Branch to the stage
LAWRENCE, Kan.— Student Union Activities of the University of Kansas is
proud to present Michelle Branch, solo in concert on Tuesday, September 23 at 7:30 pm
at the Lied Center.
Beginning with the acoustic based self-released Broken Bracelet in 2000,
Michelle Branch has always been a young woman in a big hurry. The release of Michelle
Branch’s major label debut The Spirit Room in 2001 ushered in an entirely new
movement in pop music, busting open the door for the new crop of females who write
and play their own songs, after all--there was no other female artist on the charts who
wrote and performed all the songs on her record, and her music was distinctively driven
by guitars and lyrics as opposed to loops and dance oriented videos.
“SUA is bringing a wonderful opportunity for the students and community of KU
to see a Grammy caliber artist at such an affordable cost.” Doug Brady, Live Music
Coordinator with Student Union Activities, said.
Tickets are $8 for SUA Preferred Student Cardholders on sale now. $10 for KU
students, on sale Friday, Aug. 29th. $15 for other students, on sale Tuesday, Sept. 2,
including high school and other college students with valid id. $20 for general admission,
on sale Tuesday, Sept. 2 as well. Tickets for the concert are available in the Student
Union Activities Box Office, located on Level 4 of the Kansas Union or by calling 785-
864-SHOW. For more information on this and other great events visit our website at
