KU Kickoff Live on Mass
Kansas football will open the 2017 season hosting Southeast Missouri State on Saturday, Sept. 2—and Kansas Athletics and the KU Alumni Association have partnered with LIVE ON MASS to get the weekend started off in exciting fashion by hosting a KU Kickoff pep rally and concert.

All ages are welcome to the event, which will be held at the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence. Gates will open at 6 p.m., with the pep rally with special appearances from Kansas football head coach David Beaty and the KU Spirit Squad and Pep Band will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Phantastics, a seven-member band from Kansas City specializing in tantalizing, genre-blending dance music, will headline the concert following the pep rally. The Phantastics, along with their opening acts, The Band That Saved The World, Lucas Parker Band and DJ Josh Powers, will entertain the crowd to close the evening.
