Tinie Tempah (who is best known for his song “Written in the Stars”) performed at the 2011 Syracuse University Block Party event at the Carrier Dome. The concert, which was organized by University Union, drew nearly 15,000 fans and also featured performances by Bob Marley’s youngest son, Damian Marley (“Welcome to Jamrock”), Nas (“Hate Me Now”), and Kid Cudi who stars in Mark Wahlberg’s new HBO comedy series, “How to Make it in America.”

“It was an amazing turn out,” said University Union president Andrew Beyda. “It’s not all about the numbers but when you get such a high turnout it speaks to the fact that we are addressing what students want to see. Block Party is a tradition that students have come to enjoy. Hopefully it’s one of the memories that students will have when they leave here.”
