Act fast to see Erykah Badu for $10

The annual Soul Train Awards, to be aired Nov. 28 on BET, will be held at the Atlanta Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9.

But you need to get in gear this week if you’d like to attend without spending a lot of money.

On Wednesday only, a limited number of $10 tickets will be available for the Soul Train Pre-Awards Show Concert. After that the price jumps to $39.50, on up to $200 VIP tickets getting you back stage access and an invitation to the red carpet reception amid other perks.

Scheduled to perform will be Rick Ross and Erykah Badu, the never-boring artist who got into a bit of a legal tangle this spring when she filmed the video for her song “Window Seat” and dropped her wardrobe along a downtown Dallas street.

The episode drew a $500 citation and landed her scads of free publicity. We’ll see if she holds on to her hat (and the rest of her outfit) when she performs here.

For tickets: or 800-745-3000.

I must take Wed off and camp out overnight. The queen is coming back to town. I’m literally shaking. Her music speaks volumes and I’m sure this will be a sold out show.

Naked or clothed, no talent still = no talent.

If this idiot wants to strut around naked then more power to her. All she needs to do is ring up Flynt Publications and Im sure Larry will give her a “spread”.

Otherwise enough with this attention seeking BS.

no surprise her

I’d hope she’s fully clothed with no intention of stripping, kids might be in the audience! I guess if your music isn’t selling nudity will at least get you attention. Positive or negative, people still listened to the track and watched the video. I was very dissapointed with her for that stunt. I loved Erykah when she first came out. Her voice now sounds like an old lady. Maybe she and Whitney know the same crack dealer. I wouldn’t pay $2 to see her now. Hopefully she is not the only draw for $10 tickets. If she is they may need to extend this offer! ;-D

She’s only speaking to those who understand! If you read her lyrics on each album you all might learn a thing or two about what she’s been trying to tell you all for 10yrs now. Selling Albums for Erykah is not a huge concern giving you the message is. If you can’t see beyond that then you’re a lost cause.

First, Nose Bleed Section, Erykah Badu is still one of the most talented and innovative artist in the game. Second, if you know her, although she can be out there, she does’nt use sex to sell her music, she is fairly deep. BTW, you sound like a Rihanna fan to me…

Love Erykah Badu & her music, naked or not! However, her live performances leave little to be desired since she rarely sings her hits for whatever reason. I’ll never pay to see her in concert again, let me know when tickets are free or I’ll catch it on TV.

why does anyone want to sit around waiting for the Diva to be 2hrs late on stage. She needs to retire. She is washed up.

With the state of the economy, shouldn’t lowlifes like ross,lil wayne, etc. be paying people for years of gullibility? I’m saying pay fans to come out, or do free shows. Your music is garbage anyway.

White people aka Ceasar Salad w/Booger bits refrain from commenting on stuff you know nothing about. I believe there is political jargon you can add your two cents towards. THANKS!

Dear The Standard:

I heard that, too. So I doublechecked this morning to reconfirm details. If anything changes, I will pass along any updates asap.

Ten dollars? your kidding right? to see her show up LATE? how about if she is going to be LATE then let folks in for free..sorry she has never been all that..5bucks at the top. with free sandwich and drink. sounds more befitting.

Love Erykahs’ music but the arrogance of showing up late all the time means I would never pay one penny to see her onconcert.

So what time is the concert and where will it be held? Will it also be at the Civic Center before November 9?

Erykah’s video was inspired by dance punk duo Matt and Kim, who stripped in Times Square for their clip for the track Lessons Learned.
Permit or not…….NO ONE said a word, nor did ANYTHING about Matt and Kim stripping in Time Square but Erykah was plastered all over the media.
Matt and Kim-Caucasian
Erykah Badu-African American

I’m absolutely sick of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All the judging and nitpicking.

The ticket thing is a lie just called tickmaster they have no idea about soul train or the $10 dollar tickets.They said to check the civic center website, and the do not have a posting for $10.00 tickaets all tickets start at $39.50.

This was some true bs! I camped out on the site and called ticketmaster, who claimed the event sales would begin at 1pm. It actually opened up at 1:05 (I refreshed the page, obsessively), and nothing. In this 5min slot, they also sold out of $50, $67, $89, and $95 tickets! Ugggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you can sense… I am very frustrated!
