GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – ECU announced Thursday that national recording artist Charlie Puth will headline this year’s Barefoot on the Mall event. The concert is scheduled for Thursday April 21 from 2 p.m. until 9 p.m., and is open to students and ECU faculty and staff.
Puth has become popular recently with hit sons like “Marvin Gaye” featuring Meghan Trainor, “See You Again” with Wiz Khalifa, and “One Call Away.”
Each year, Barefoot on the Mall draws between 5,000 and 7,000 students. The free event takes place on the campus mall and is sponsored by the Student Activities Board.
ECU officials want to alert visitors and students that sound checks will begin earlier that morning, ultimately leading up to Puth’s performance, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. People should expect higher than normal noise levels during this time.
Previous artists for the annual event include Jason Derulo and Lauren Alaina.
