Atlanta-based rapper and producer Big Boi—most known for being one half of Outkast—headlines a free pre-game show on Tuesday, Oct. 10, as part of the Lightning’s GAME ONE party.
Another performance will take place on the Ford Thunder Alley stage—located at 401 Channelside Dr.—after the Lightning take on the Nashville Predators, although it’s unsure who will headline the post-game concert.
Big Boi takes the stage at 3:15 p.m. and the first puck drops at 5:30 p.m.
This season’s kick-off party also features a ton of giveaways (including free Lightning tickets), food and drink specials and photo opportunities on the Lightning’s blue carpet.
It’s no surprise that the hockey team is kicking its season off with Big Boi, considering the rapper helped the Lightning celebrate its 2021 Stanley Cup win, although his performance unfortunately got rained out.
Although the Grammy award-winning artist hasn’t released an album since 2017’s “Boomiverse,” we hope to hear Big Boi classics like “Shutterbug” and “All Night” alongside his new single “Tell C-Bone” during the rapper’s 45 minute set in Tampa next month.
