Metro Station Break Up

Metro Station has broken up. An article regarding the break up can be seen below.

If there were one word for the Campus Activities Board’s concerts at Homecoming and Tigerfest this year, it might be “unpredictable.” Scheduled headliners Keri Hilson and Wale dropped out of the October Homecoming concert three weeks ahead and were replaced by Lupe Fiasco.

On Monday evening, Bridget Chase, assistant director of programming for student activities, got a call she was hoping not to receive. Metro Station, the scheduled opening act for Tigerfest on April 25, has broken up.

“Our middle agent called me to let me know and my first thought was ‘He’s got to be kidding,'” she said.

The band’s label, Columbia Records, has not yet responded to a request for comment.

In 2009, the band lost bassist Blake Healy and drummer Anthony Improgo. The band was most recently a two-man lineup featuring guitarist Trace Cyrus (half-brother to Miley) and singer Mason Musso. Announced as Tigerfest performers just two weeks ago, the pop-rock band would have opened for N.E.R.D on the Burdick Field stage.

However, Chase noted, Towson had not yet signed a contract with the band and that they were in a binding process as the final agreement was hammered out.

“We didn’t have any reason to think it was a disaster. It was the usual process,” she said.

From here, Chase and CAB are searching for a band that will be available that weekend and on the East Coast. Unfortunately, she said, that means most of the bands from CAB’s survey earlier this year are already booked.

“As we’re surveying students, those bands are taking dates as we’re doing that,” she said. “We’re going to see who else is out there who is not booked on that date. We really want to get a good name, obviously.”

Chase said she is taking the change with a sense of humor, however.

“Maybe it’s a funny year in the concert world for schools,” she said. “It has been an interesting and challenging year.”
