Providence College’s Late Night Madness event has been a long-standing tradition of the school, taking place on Homecoming Weekend and marking the beginning of practices for the upcoming basketball season. Along with performers such as the dance team and dance club, PC’s head basketball coaches Erin Batth and Kim English spoke at the event after the introduction of the women’s and men’s basketball teams, respectively. This was the first Late Night Madness for both coaches with the college.
Providence College has gone above and beyond for this event for decades, and this year was no different. In the past, PC has hosted performers such as Khalid, John Legend, and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie. This year at the Amica Mutual Pavilion, the College hosted two-time Grammy nominated band OneRepublic. The band is known for their hits such as “Counting Stars,” “I Lived,” and “Apologize,” hits that were most popular from the late 2000s to the mid 2010s.
The band has been nominated for several prestigious music awards such as The Grammys, the American Music Awards, and the Billboard music awards. OneRepublic performed this weekend at the AMP in Providence, on Saturday, Sept. 30 2023, for PC students, parents, alumni, and others returning for the many events of Homecoming Weekend. The performance added to the nostalgia of the weekend and put on an amazing performance for the hundreds of students who packed the AMP to support the PC community and enjoy the long-standing tradition that is Late Night Madness.
