CHICAGO – Marquee Sports Network today announced it will live stream the upcoming sold-out Umphrey’s McGee concert on Thursday, August 25 at the Vic Theatre. Show time is 8 PM CT and the concert can be streamed live via Marquee Plus. Additionally, the concert will air tape-delayed on Marquee Sports Network on Friday, August 26 following Cubs Postgame Live!
Last year, Marquee Sports Network announced a partnership with the Chicago-based band and the group has been featured across multiple Marquee platforms, including live performances from Gallagher Way. The upcoming concert at the Vic Theatre will be the first full concert aired on Marquee Sports Network channels.
“We’ve done a lot of collaborative things with Umphrey’s McGee, including them writing original music for us, and providing live music for our pregame shows on Gallagher Way,” said Marquee Sports Network General Manager, Mike McCarthy. “We’re excited to bring the relationship to another level with a live performance from such an exciting venue like the Vic. Each of us at Marquee can now finally say, ‘I’m with the band.’”
“The last time Umphrey’s played the Vic was in 2009 for an album release party,” said Umphrey’s McGee Manager, Kevin Browning. “We are elated to return and look forward to sharing the experience with fans, whether in person or from the comfort of their couch. With our pals at Marquee joining in the fun, expect UM to bring the heat and put up a crooked number.”
Marquee Plus can be accessed via the Marquee Sports Network app, free of charge for Marquee Sports Network subscribers. For more information on how to download the app, visit here.
