While most shows are open to the public, there are a few stops where admission is limited to university students.  The Sept. 26 tour kickoff in Pomona, Calif., is a closed show as is the Oct. 5 gig in Dallas, Oct. 10 in New Brunswick, N.J., and Oct. 11 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

But there are plenty of shows available for Mr. and Mrs. John Q, including one when Jason Derulo is scheduled to appear and two stops where Travis Scott will guest.

The Verge Campus Fall Tour promises more than music.  Along with night concerts there will be the daily Interactive Villages promoting education, entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, fashion and more while giving students opportunities to test products, build relationships, and snag internships and post-grad jobs.
