MTV Campus Invasion Splits Into Hip-Hop & Rock Tours

It's a different year and a highly different look to the MTV Campus Invasion Tour in 2003. While last year's event featured a heavy sound, with Nickelback, Default, and Injected on the main stage and Tripwire faves Starsailor on some stage behind a dumpster, this year the tour is rocking some mitosis and splitting into two separate touring entities, one a hip-hop venture and the other for the kids who like the guitars. The hip-hop half will be represented by Talib Kweli and Fabolous, either separate or together, while the rock tour features The Used, Finch and The Exies. There have only been a handful of dates announced at this early juncture, but keep reading to see if your town is on the itinerary.
