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.
