Alabama and LSU will pay something like a combined $1 million for the privilege of giving free music to Allstate's national championship game. That's how much it will take to get Bama's Million Dollar Band and LSU's band, which you'll have to call to learn the price of, into the Superdome.
Overall, Vincent said, the total bill for the LSU band's appearance at the BCS game will run to $445,150, including transportation, three night's lodging, meals, police escorts and other miscellaneous costs.
Alabama did not provide the total amount for what it will cost to get its band to and from the game, though it's easy to figure that its costs will be similar.
Pretty good system!
