Khalid is best known for his hit songs “Location” and “Young Dumb & Broke” from his debut album “American Teen.” Notable collaborations with artists such as Lorde, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes and Marshmello, as well as a song on the soundtrack of the blockbuster film “Black Panther,” prove Khalid to be an up-and-coming name in the R&B scene.

Before the show, students can attend the Panther Street Festival at the fountain courtyard between the Golda Meir Library and Curtin Hall. The free festival will go from 3 to 6:30 p.m. and will feature henna tattoo artists, carnival attractions, free food and a live DJ set.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., free shuttles will run from the festival to the amphitheater. After the concert, shuttles will also provide transportation back to campus.

UWM students will receive one free ticket with a valid student ID. Students, faculty and staff can also purchase up to two additional tickets for $20 each. Tickets will be available at the UWM Student Union Information Center at the beginning of the Fall 2018 semester.
