Marquette men’s basketball fans will now be able to enjoy a pregame concert series prior to each of the team’s Saturday BIG EAST home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, beginning with this weekend’s matchup against St. John’s at 1 p.m. CT.
The performances will take place in the east atrium of the arena (4th Street side of building) and begin when doors open to the general public, which is one hour prior to opening tip.
“We are continually looking for new and unique ways to enhance the fan experience at our basketball games,” Deputy Athletic Director Brian Hardin said. “We are excited to be able to partner with an excellent local group in K Nation Entertainment and expose local musical talent to our fans over the next five Saturday games.”
