Details announced for Stanley Cup Final watch parties

Posted: Updated:

Live music and big screens will take over Broadway before Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final for a free Broadway Smash party.

Before those home games, a stage will be set up at Fifth Avenue and Broadway facing the Cumberland River with large screens at the stage and in other locations. Broadway will be closed between Fifth and Third avenues.

A pre-game concert featuring special guest artists will start about 4 p.m. Artist names will be announced later.

"It's still a well-kept secret so you're just going to have to stay tuned," said Mayor Megan Barry.

The site will open to the public at 3:30 p.m. with the concert at 4 p.m. A pre-game broadcast will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the game shown on screens beginning at 7 p.m.

"Nashville knows how to celebrate world-class sports with world-class music and the world's best hockey fans," Barry said. "Only in Nashville could you have A-list artists on hand and excited to help the city come together for great music while we cheer on our Nashville Predators."

"The excitement at these parties has been as electric as what we've seen inside Bridgestone Arena," said Sean Henry, President and CEO of the Nashville Predators. "This is a great way for us to thank the fans and accommodate our growing fan base. We know we could not have made this historic run without the support of the most important member of our team - the seventh man, representing all the fans."

The community response to the viewing parties has been overwhelming," said Butch Spyridon, President and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. "With the eyes of the hockey world on Nashville, we have another chance to demonstrate why this city is such a great destination, and we are ready to accommodate our Nashville fans and the world's hockey fans."

Preds Party in the Park will be held at Music City Walk of Fame Park for away games on May 29 and May 31. A large screen will show the pre-game broadcast beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the game set to begin at 7 p.m.

Westbound lanes of Demonbreun between 4th and 5th Avenues will be closed for food and beer trucks.

Metro Police say there will be more police presence.
