BUCKS TO CELEBRATE Y2K NIGHT ON FEBRUARY 22 WITH SPECIAL HALFTIME PERFORMANCE BY COOLIO AND A SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY GLENN 'BIG DOG' ROBINSON
Matchup with Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers will also feature Y2K-era pricing on all upper level seats, with many available for just $7.
Remember when Y2K was supposed to spell doom for the technological infrastructure of America? While the turn of the millennium provided to be anticlimactic in some respects, the effects that the years leading up to Y2K had on pop culture are still felt today, for better or worse. The years surrounding Y2K showed us the magical wonders of Harry Potter and MP3s, along with the travails of the dot com bubble bursting and the scourge of reality TV. The Bucks will celebrate this pop cultural confluence with Y2K Night on Saturday, Feb. 22, when the conference-leading Indiana Pacers make their first visit of the season (7:30 p.m. tip). To help fans reminisce on that not-so-long-ago era of the late nineties and early aughts, the team has rolled back pricing on all upper-level seats to what tickets went for at the turn of the century, with many available for just $7 (plus applicable fees).
In addition to watching the Bucks battle the conference-leading Pacers, fans will also be treated to a special halftime performance from Coolio. A platinum-selling hip hop artist in the late ’90s, Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” is one of the most successful rap songs of all time and earned him a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
Along with a special halftime performance by Coolio, fans in attendance will be treated to an appearance by Bucks’ great, Glenn Robinson, who will be recognized during the game. The player known as “Big Dog” will also sign autographs on the concourse pre-game starting at 6:30 P.M. Bucks MVP season ticket holders will be able to enter the building early at 6pm to secure a place in line.
In addition to Y2K pricing and this unique halftime performance, all fans in attendance will also receive a free retro Glenn Robinson Bucks pennant. All in-arena entertainment during the game will reflect the Y2K-era theme as well, including player introductions, music and in-game contests.
A select number of Big Dog VIP packages are available for purchase. The package includes a ticket in a suite, food and beverage, and an in-suite visit from Robinson during the game.
