April Fools’ Day 2013: Not good enough for TigerFest 2013

Dear CAB,
The opportunity to pick up our favorite artists has come to light. Meat Loaf and Taylor Swift. The perfect duo, thus creating the perfect TigerFest.
If you recall, we made this same request last year.
To say the least, we’re disappointed. Here’s why:
1. Meat Loaf is currently touring the world on his finale tour and is on his way back to the States. What better of a way to finish strong if he were to finish in Baltimore? Let’s be honest. The man’s got talent.
2. TayTay is also on her “Red” tour, and can surely make a pit stop in town. Maybe she could even bring along her friend Ed Sheeran?
3. Just imagine a combination of “I Would Do Anything For Love” meets “I Knew You Were Trouble.” “I would do anything for love, anything you’ve been dreaming of/ but I knew you were trouble when you walked in.”
Yeah? You’re digging it? Yeah, we know.
If it’s ticket prices you’re concerned about, who wouldn’t be willing to pay $100 to see two musical legacies. Really, please speak up because we don’t believe you.
Your ticket sales would surely increase, we have absolutely no doubts about this.
If it’s a hip-hop artist you’re looking for, Meat Loaf can break it down.
He’s known for his various musical ranging from rock, rock ‘n’ roll, hard rock, rock opera, and heavy metal. Combine that with Taylor Swift’s country, pop, country pop (we’re not kidding—that’s a thing), and her dabble with dubstep, it should pose for a very interesting show certain to please.
They’ve even got to connection to other artists. After Glee covered “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” in their National’s episode a while back, Meat Loaf has gained a lot of respect. Everyone loves Glee. Technically in the same episode they also covered “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” which—while is typically attributed to Celine Dion—was also covered WONDERFULLY by Meat Loaf. Regardless, I’m sure something could be arranged so we can have Celine come sing a heart-stopping performance of “My Heart Will Go On” and Glee can come do whatever Glee does and we’ll have an even better show.
Think of the possibilities!
We’ll both be seniors next year, so in conclusion, we’d appreciate it if our next, and final, TigerFest (ever!) would feature some quality talent for once.
Barring any apocalypses or raptures, TigerFest 2014 should be a great show.
