More than 1,750 people attended the “CROCS NEXT STEP CAMPUS TOUR featuring OneRepublic with special guest Fabolous” visited Rollins this past weekend. The event included an outdoor festival in the Alfond Sports Center parking lot on the Rollins campus and a concert in the Sports Center. The festival included free product giveaways from various sponsors and booths for Major League Baseball, SPIN Music Magazine, X-Box 260 Video Gaming Company and more.
OneRepublic is an American rock band/R&B group. They have received mainstream attention since the release of their hit single, “Apologize.” The remix was featured on Timbaland’s Shock Value album. The follow up to the single, “Stop and Stare,” is currently number 13 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” list.
In 2001, Fabolous scored a big hit with “Can’t Deny It,” instantly establishing himself as a rising East Coast rap star. He was influenced by southern hip hop sounds and his music has crossed into pop rap as well.
The tour is visiting 15 college campuses.
