Indie-rockers of Cage The Elephant are slated to perform a free concert to kick-off this year’s NHL Playoffs and celebrate Tampa Bay Lightning’s first Presidents’ Trophy win.
The show will take place on April 10 in Tampa, Florida at Curtis Hixon Park. This is the first show in the series of musical concerts and performances planned ahead of the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals and will be the second time the NHL has used The Curt as a venue in the past two years. During the same night, Game 1 of the first round will likely take place, since the Bolts have a home ice advantage thanks to scoring the best record in hockey. Fans do not need a ticket to attend the concert.
Cage The Elephant, best-known for hit tracks like “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” and “Cigarette Daydreams,” are set to release their fifth studio record Social Cues later this month. They recently shared the track “Ready To Let Go,” their first single since 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty. The group holds the record for the most No. 1 alternative songs of any artists in this decade.
In addition to the new music, they’ve also announced a co-headlining North American tour this summer with Beck. During the trek, they’ll stop in Tampa again in August with Spoon and Sunflower Bean. Fans can also catch the group performing at Woodstock 50, the festival celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the 1969 event later this year.
