Logic to Play Free Concert Before Stanley Cup Playoff Game in Las Vegas

Ryan Jay


The NHL is celebrating this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs with a free concert featuring one of today’s biggest artists.

Logic will headline the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Party on Wednesday in Las Vegas, which will be open to the public on Toshiba Plaza outside the T-Mobile Arena, where NHL expansion team the Vegas Golden Knights host their games. The show kicks off the opening night of the playoffs, before the Golden Knights’ historic first-ever postseason game versus the Los Angeles Kings.

Vegas fans can join in on the fun in person, beginning at 5 p.m. PT on Wednesday, but at-home viewers can experience portions of the show that will be broadcast during the Pittsburgh Penguins game against the Philadelphia Flyers, as well as the Minnesota Wild match versus the Winnipeg Jets.

Last month, Logic scored his second No. 1 album in less than a year on the Billboard 200 chart, when his new mixtape, Bobby Tarantino II, debuted atop the list. The set, which was released on March 9 through Visionary/Def Jam, bowed with 119,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 32,000 were in traditional album sales.
