Rush of Fools to perform on outdoor stage

Mar 26, 2015
Rush of Fools

The nationally acclaimed Christian rock band Rush of Fools will be performing outdoors on Newman University’s Founders Plaza on Friday, March 27. According to, Friday’s forecast calls for a high of 58 degrees with no chance of rain.

As a precaution, alternate plans in the case of inclement weather were to move the concert inside Fugate Gymnasium. The alternate plans will not be in effect.

People attending the concert are encouraged to bring a light jacket, blankets to sit on, and folding chairs. If you get hungry, three different food trucks will be stationed on the plaza. Funky Monkey Munchies, Let’m Eat Brats and B.S. Sandwich Press will all be directly on the plaza during the concert.

For those on Instagram, Newman University will present awards to the top five individuals with the best Instagram photo taken during the concert. Instagram photos must be tagged #NewmanURush to be in the contest. The winners will be announced at the end of the concert and must be present to win.
