Bridgestone Arena set for facelift, Preds fan day

Posted: Updated:

With Nashville Predators' home hockey season in the books, Bridgestone Arena is ready for a facelift.

Officials plan to remodel the rear entrance on Demonbreun Street, which faces the new Music City Center and expanded Country Music Hall of Fame.

Arena authorities are also going to install some large video screens and have other big plans to improve the fans' experience.

"We'll have a lot of indoor/outdoor activities - a band stage, post-game interviews. We'll have a lot of fun with conventions, and we'll have shared A/V, shared video capabilities," said Sean Henry, president and chief operating officer of the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena.

The plan officially got the green light at Thursday's meeting of the Metropolitan Sports Authority.

Work should begin in about a month, and crews are going to keep the roads open while they work.

Preds to host fan celebration Sunday

Meanwhile, the Preds plan to hold an end-of-season celebration for fans Sunday at Bridgestone Arena.

Events include a free open skate with equipment provided and a sidewalk sale of Preds merchandise.

Everything begins at noon, and free parking will be available in the Sixth Avenue Garage at the corner of Sixth Avenue North and Demonbreun Street.
