Posner performs at Cintas

Single Please Don’t Go keeps audience captivated

To see a pop star performing his number one single in a Xavier basketball jersey would be something that Xavier students would struggle to fathom. On Saturday, this became a reality when Mike Posner performed at Cintas

Center. Student Activities Council (SAC) organized the show and the 1,200 people who turned out to see Posner did not leave disappointed. Though all of his songs may

have not been widely known, the crowd remained incredibly excitable throughout the show. Posner may not be everybody's favorite artist, but there are absolutely no

doubts about his abilities as an entertainer. Posner set the tone at the beginning of the show with his hit "Please Don't Go" and, impressively, maintained the same levels of enthusiasm and intensity right until the last note of his encore, the number one single "Cooler than Me." When Posner left the stage before his encore, everybody in the crowd fully expected him to come back onstage and perform another song, but they did not expect him to don a Xavier basketball jersey. This produced an earsplitting reaction from the crowd, giving him the biggest ovation of the night. Dustin Lewis, assistant director of Student Involvement, was thrilled about the show and believes that it was a thorough success. "The concert had a lot of great energy from the students that attended and from the front of the stage I could see that there were a lot of students who had a really great time at the show," Lewis said. Posner attended Duke University and produced the vast majority of his music in his dorm room, so to play a concert at a university was very special to him. He was incredibly grateful towards Xavier's students and sent out a very sentimental message that shows he is an example of exactly why we should all follow our dreams. Lewis was not too stretched with the hospitality and dressing room demands of Posner and his band, the Brain Trust, but the gastronomical demands were a little out of the ordinary.

"Mike travels with a really mixed bag of eaters, so we provided all kinds of kosher, non-kosher, vegan, vegetarian and meat-eating options for them as a group," Lewis said. Currently, there are no other concerts scheduled, but SAC will be putting on other events in the near future.xactly why we should all follow our dreams.
