Postgame Concert Series Presented by VW

Tampa Bay Area Volkswagen dealers and the Tampa Bay Lightning are teaming up to bring the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen to the St. Pete Times Forum this season. The concert series will continue in February with a performance by Edwin McCain on the West Plaza stage immediately following the Lightning vs. Hurricanes game on Saturday, February 12. Access to the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen is free with the purchase of a Lightning game ticket.

Edwin McCain's warm and winsome songs have built an enduring and enviable career, filled with chart-topping hits and crowds in every town that keep him on the road 200 days each year. A rare artist whose songs are as popular today as the day they were released, McCain returns with "Walk with You" a powerful single that is poised to take its place alongside his romantic touchstones, "I'll Be" and "I Could Not Ask For More."


First 2,500 women will receive a Steven Stamkos pink t-shirt.

First 5,000 in Lightning gear will receive Thundersticks.

Platt Street Bridge Construction

On Monday, January 10th, Hillsborough County began restoration of the Platt Street Bridge. During phase one on this restoration, the northern lane of the bridge will be closed for approximately 4 months.

Fans coming to the rink from the South Tampa area who would normally use the Platt Street Bridge are encouraged to use the Crosstown Expressway or the Kennedy Street Bridge as alternate routes to avoid the construction process.
