A Flock of Seagulls will perform for free at the game’s after-party, held in Armory Park. The Liverpool, England-based band was one of the most popular bands of the new wave era. Their hit “I Ran (So Far Away)” was one of the decade’s most iconic songs — so, too, was singer Mike Score’s unique, long-in-the-front hairstyle.
(C’mon, watch the video. You know you want to.)
A Flock of Seagulls is the second well-known band to play in a bowl-sponsored event that day. Neon Trees will play the game’s tailgate party on the UA mall before the game.
New Mexico State and Utah State will kick off at 3:30 p.m. at Arizona Stadium. The Arizona Bowl will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.
