Bradford Bulls are pleased to announce that their latest pre-match entertainment extravaganza will feature a Grease theme, plus a special appearance from the multi-award winning Yorkshire Building Society Concert Brass Band.
Grease is the most successful movie musical of all time. After being released in 1978 starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, it grossed more than US$340 million around the world, and on Saturday it forms the centre piece of the Bulls awarding winning, West End style, pre-match entertainment production.
Bulls Spokesman Simon Collinson said:
?We are delighted to stage the Grease show prior to the match against Wigan Warriors on Saturday. It is a theme we have been working on for a while, and it promises to be another spectacular prelude to a sensational match.?
The Yorkshire Building Society Concert Brass Band will also perform on Saturday, welcoming supporters as they enter the stadium. The current European Brass Band Champions, who recently lifted the trophy for the fifth successive time, will be located in the BullZone area. They will be joined on the concourses by Bullman, Bullboy, Wigan?s Mighty Max, stilt walkers, the Bulls Roadshow and Pulse Roadshow.
Bulls Captain, Robbie Paul, is delighted that the band will be present, being a keen musician himself. Robbie said:
?It?s great that the Yorkshire Building Society Concert Brass Band are playing at our next home game ? the atmosphere in the ground can really make a difference to how the team play so the more support the better. I?m just sorry that I won?t have time to join in with the band on the day!?
Gates open at 3.30pm, with Bradford Bulls taking on Wigan Warriors in the Junior Academy Championship at 3.40pm ahead of the Main Event ? the ?Battle of the Warriors? ? which kicks off at 6pm. The Half Time show will feature a celebration of youth rugby, with U9?s little league accompanied by an exhibition match featuring the winner?s of the Bulltag Summer Championship held at Odsal on Wednesday (18th June), while post match fans can stay behind and watch a re-run of the game in the new Touchdown and Pavilion Public Bars.
