    Get Foxy at the ultimate game-day party

    Bud Light Tailgate Zone 2013_NFLWho Dey! 

    Introducing...the 2013 Bud Light Tailgate Zone presented by WEBN! Before every home Bengals game at Freedom Way at The Banks, football fans and friends will gather to pre-game their way to a win. Featuring live music, beer pong, flip cup, face painting, and of course, plenty of ice cold Bud Light, this year's tailgates are back and better than ever. Plus - the Bud Bar will be parked on Freedom Way featuring flat screen TV's, barstool seating and fans/heaters, for bar-like comfort no matter the weather.

    The first Bud Light Tailgate Zone of the year will celebrate Monday Night Football - this Monday, September 16 as the Bengals go up against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Entertainment will include national recording act Foxy Shazam as well as the Death Valley Wreckers.  Foxy Shazam has appeared at Lollapalooza, on the Vans Warped Tour, here in Cincinnati at the Bunbury Festival, and has recently opened for Slash. 

    On Opening Night, the Bud Light Tailgate Zone will partner with the Necco Autism Project and Bengals legend Ken Anderson for Kick Off 2013 at The Banks. Necco will be raising funds for the Ken Anderson Community for adults living with autism by hosting a special VIP area as part of the Tailgate Zone. Last year more than 5,000 fans packed Fountain Square for Necco’s Kick Off celebration and this year they will join the Bud Light Tailgate Zone fun. 

    Scheduled to be in attendance are Nick Lachey, Anderson, and the following former Bengals: Jim Breech, Louis Breeden, Bob Johnson, James Brooks, Barney Bussey, John Simmons, Robert Jackson, Kevin Walker, Mike Martin, Dave Lapham, Tony Davi, Rick Razanno, Glenn Bujnoch, Ira Hillary, and Brad Cousino.  For more information on obtaining VIP tickets, visit Necco will conduct other activities throughout the entire Bud Light Tailgate season include a passing clinic with Anderson, a Bengals costume contest, and more special guests for fans to meet.
