The news broke today that Keith Urban will be performing during the first intermission (hockey doesn’t have a halftime people) of the NHL Stadium Series game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers. The game will take place at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles, on February 23rd.
“We’re thrilled that these artists are now considering our events to be of the highest level and incredible exposure for them,” NHL chief content officer Steve Mayer said. “For us as the NHL, we’re just looking for the biggest artists we can find, and we think that Keith Urban transcends all of that.”
“Keith really has fallen in love with the game, fallen in love with hockey, thinks this is a really cool opportunity and wants to work with us more and more promoting the game,” Mayer said.
