For the third time in as many home games, UK Athletics will host a pregame concert before the Kentucky football team takes on Missouri on Saturday. The concert will feature the Bobby Perry Band. The concert will be held next to the Green Lot adjacent to Gate 1 of Commonwealth Stadium. The Bobby Perry Band will play starting at 3 p.m. before breaking for the Cat Walk at 5:15 p.m. and playing an encore afterward. Based in Lexington, the Bobby Perry Band is comprised of five Kentucky natives and former Wildcats basketball player Bobby Perry. Perry was a forward on the men’s basketball team from 2004-2007 and now plays piano for the country band. The Bobby Perry Band just released its first album, "Just A Song Away." The album is available on iTunes. Single-game tickets for the Missouri game are available to the public now, as well as limited season tickets and mini-packs. Tickets can be purchased by visiting ukfootballtix.com. UK has had sellout crowds in each of its first two home games.
