SD Mines students have reduced ticket prices of $30 for the general Admission pit and reserved lower level and $20 for the upper level.  Tickets for the general public are $50 for the general admission pit and reserved lower level and $40 for the upper level. 

“The concert planned for the Fall of ‘18 is not just a concert for the SD Mines students, but a way for the students to interact with the community,” says Jake Oberpriller Student Association President. “Engineering students often get the reputation that we don't know how to have fun, and this is an opportunity to show that SD Mines is more than just a small engineering school east of downtown Rapid City.”
