Famous basketball performers headed to Rupp Arena this weekend
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 13, 2014) — The world famous Harlem Globetrotters will welcome another highly-acclaimed performance group to the floor when the Globetrotters’ 2014 “Fans Rule” World Tour comes to Rupp Arena in Lexington on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3 p.m.
The acoUstiKats, who recently competed on the popular TV show, “The Sing-Off,” have been invited by the Globetrotters to perform approximately 30 minutes prior to tip-off, before the opening tip and during halftime (performance schedule subject to change).
