Here are 3 things we know: Buffalo loves Buffalo. Buffalo loves football. Buffalo loves tailgating. Like looooooves it.
From Bills games to college football games, we’re all about the experience here in WNY. Games are about more than just winning. Which is why when it comes to tailgating, we always bring our A-game. It’s half the fun, after all.
We have good news for all the football/tailgating fans in the crowd. The UB tailgate concert series is back this fall and better than ever.
To put it bluntly, the 2017 lineup is stacked. There’s something for everyone, including those with no musical taste at all. (That’s where the usual tailgating activities come in. You know, eating, drinking, being merry.) This year the talent will range from classic country to rock and alternative rock. So, who will hit the stage come September and October?
Each concert will begin two hours before kickoff in Stampede Square in the Stadium Parking Lot between the stadium and Millersport Highway. Not a UB student? You’re still invited. Parent of a UB Student? Consider this the personal invitation you were hoping for, but won’t be getting from your kid. UB Alum? Come on down! Buff State Alum? They won’t hold it against you. 😉
The concerts themselves are free and open to the public. Woo! Free is our *favorite*.
For the ultimate experience, you just might consider going with VIP. The VIP gameday experience is still only $36, and sounds totally worth it in our opinion.
VIP gets you a game ticket and front-of-stage access during the tailgate concert. Plus, VIP credential and access to the VIP tent featuring free food and non-alcoholic beverages. I’m sorry, this is beyond worth the money.
About These Tickets
If you know us at all, you know we’re all about getting a good deal. Pro tip: UB faculty and staff can purchase season tickets for just $66, and UB employees can purchase additional season tickets for family members at the same low price.
Jr. Bulls Kids Club is once again looking out for our littlest Buffalonians. A $30 membership gets kids access to all the home sporting events of the season and some super cool gear.
Get your tickets online, by calling 1-877-UB-THERE, or visiting the ticket office in Alumni Arena.
TL;DR: The home game football experience is just better when you live in Buffalo, so why not make the most of it? This four-concert tailgate series is seriously the complete package whether you’re 12, 22 or 72.
