This from the Hokie website:
Join us for a special evening as we, together with Virginia's own Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Phil Vassar, and Nas, enjoy A Concert for Virginia Tech.
The concert is being offered by these inspired musicians as a gracious gift to the Virginia Tech community. It’s about a celebration of spirit. It’s about showing the resiliency and strength of our community known throughout the world as Hokie Spirit.
On September 6th, we’ll celebrate the Hokie Spirit and the university community.
We are Virginia Tech.
The "Concert for Virginia Tech" will have an impact on classes that evening. As of now, the Provost's office plans to cancel classes beginning at 5 p.m. so that all faculty, staff, and students may attend the concert if they wish.
There was a little bit of concern in a Roanoke Times’ editorial this morning about the appropriatness of Nas’ lyrics. Let’s hope for the best.
