Morris-day-and-timeBIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The State Farm Magic City Classic presented by Coca-Cola has announced that funk extraordinaire Morris Day and the Time will perform in the post-event concert inside Legion Field immediately following the game. The largest Black college football game in the country will take place on Saturday, October 26th and admission to the concert is included in the price of a State Farm Magic City Classic game ticket.
Morris Day and the Time are some of the most successful artists to have worked with Prince. As an American funk and dance-pop ensemble, Prince formed the pop-funk group in the early ’80s. They are widely known for playing a big part in Prince’s “Purple Rain” film that swept the nation in 1984.
“We are thrilled to have another great legend entertaining fans after the game this year,” stated Faye Oates, executive director of the State Farm Magic City Classic. “Morris Day and the Time will provide an exciting performance for the fans, and what a great deal it is for the fans to receive complimentary admission with their game ticket.”
All fans must purchase a game ticket for admission to the concert.  Reserved tickets for the State Farm Magic City Classic are only $25, while full-priced general admission tickets are $20. Both are still available for purchase through TicketMaster at 800-745-3000 or online at www.themagiccityclassic.com. Tickets can also be purchased at Legion Field or AAMU and ASU ticket offices. As the official discount ticket outlet, fans will only be able to purchase the $15 general admission discounted ticket from select Regions Bank locations.
The State Farm Magic City Classic brings fans and celebrities from around the country to watch as Alabama A&M University and Alabama State University battle it out for bragging rights. Fans can also enjoy the McDonald’s Magic City Classic Parade and the Coors Light Tailgate Party throughout the weekend. Kick-off is at 2:30p.m. on Saturday, October 26th, and the much-anticipated halftime will feature the Marching Hornets and the Marching Maroon and White.
Also at halftime, both university presidents will honor this year’s celebrity ambassador, hip-hop artist, actor, director and movie producer, “Ice Cube.”
