Tickets are on sale now for an upcoming concert by rock ‘n’ roll band Hinder (pictured above) at Western Carolina University’s Ramsey Center.

The concert line-up, presented by Last Minute Productions, is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14, and will include a special guest performance by rock band Puddle of Mudd.

Hinder’s current hits include “Lips of an Angel” from the album Extreme Behavior. The music of Hinder is filled with “flick-your-Bic moments of arena-rock grandeur, all crackling dual lead guitars, ethereal four-part harmonies and soaring beat-your-chest rock vocals,” critics say. Hailing from Oklahoma City, the post-grunge hard rockers say their band is all about “four people singing and putting on a big rock show.”

Puddle of Mudd’s major-label debut album Come Clean spawned the lead single “Control,” which became the theme song for the WWE Survivor Series 2001. Other chart-topping hits include “She Hates Me” and “Blurry.” The band has toured alongside the likes of Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park and Staind.

Last Minute Productions, the student-run entertainment and activity planning organization at WCU, is focusing efforts on bringing headline acts to Cullowhee. “We’re excited that Hinder is coming to campus. The band has a great appeal to the majority of students,” said Jason Eckard, music chair for Last Minute Productions.

General admission tickets are $20 in advance and at the door. WCU students with valid identification may purchase tickets in advance for $15. A limited number of floor tickets are available.
