We simply couldn¹t be more excited for UMBowl II after the success of last year¹s inaugural event. The first of its kind, UMBowl is a uniquely interactive concert where the fans call the plays. UMBowl II will consist of four musical quarters, each with a different interactive theme. This year¹s quarters will have many of the same elements as the original UMBowl with additional surprises thrown in.

We have considered many of your suggestions after last year¹s event and made a few changes based on your feedback. First up, the venue is shifting to the Park West. You wanted more space, so you are getting more space. In order to maintain the intimacy, we are only going to sell 700 total tickets (including multiple VIP options) instead of the venue¹s usual 1,000-person capacity. This will allow for improved sight lines and significantly more room to get down. Additionally, per your request, the venue move also allows us to amp up our production value and bring you a more robust light show.

We have also taken steps to ensure that purchasing tickets will be a smoother experience this year. The ham sandwich that was stuck in last year¹s ticketing server has been removed. Tickets are $99.00 and available on a first come first serve basis, limit four (4) per person, starting on February 28th at 12:00 pm CT.

Stay tuned for frequent updates regarding the musical quarters, VIP packages, merchandise options (no cheap jerseys allowed), ticketing info and much, much more. Check out the archive of last year¹s event and start building the hype.
Game on.
