UPTOWN — The Chicago Bears will kick off the 2013-2014 football season on a musical note with a pep rally in Uptown headlined by hometown hip-hop star Lupe Fiasco.

The Miller Lite Bears Kickoff Concert is scheduled for Sept. 5 at the Aragon Ballroom, 1106 W. Lawrence Ave.

The all-ages pep rally, presented by CBS Radio and the Chicago Bears and sponsored by RedEye, also features a performance by hip-hop band Michael Franti & Spearhead, and gives fans a chance to meet players and win prizes, according to CBS.

Some of the prizes include autographed helmets, autographed footballs and tickets to the Bears season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 8.

Bears radio broadcasters Jeff Joniak and Tom Thayer will serve as guest emcees for the festivities.

Tickets go on sale Monday and cost $35.
