BATON ROUGE – The LSU Tiger Band, Golden Girls and Colorguard have entertained millions of LSU fans as they perform before, during and after football games at Tiger Stadium, as well as other special events locally, nationally and abroad.
On Tuesday, Oct. 23, LSU fans will once again have a chance to witness one of those special events, as the Tiger Band will present this year’s annual Tigerama concert at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and dress for the event is tailgate attire.
For more than 30 years, Tigerama has served a special concert event held to celebrate not only the current LSU Tiger football season, but also highlight the many talented musical and performance ensembles that are part of the LSU Department of Bands.
“Tigerama is a great way to see the best of Tiger Band, as well as a great recruiting tool for our department,” LSU Director of Athletic Bands Roy King said.
The evening includes performances by the LSU Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds and Tiger Band, featuring the Golden Girls and Colorguard, as well as the LSU Cheerleaders.
A special VIP reception and silent auction event will take place from 5:30-6:30 p.m., prior to the concert beginning at 7 p.m. The auction will include but is not limited to special LSU collectibles, LSU and Tiger Band experiences and unique, one-of-a-kind items. The $100 VIP ticket price includes pre-event entrance, access to the silent auction and complimentary catering, live musical entertainment, pictures with members of the Golden Girls and Colorguard and reserved “front and center” stadium seating.
All proceeds from the Tigerama auction, reception and concert will go directly into the Tiger Band account with the Tiger Athletic Foundation, for use by the Tiger Band.

General admission seating cost is $20, with a special $10 ticket price for elementary, high school and college students.
