NEW YORK - The National Hockey League will open the 2020 Honda NHL® All-Star Weekend in St. Louis with the Enterprise NHL® All-Star Friday Night concert featuring rock band O.A.R. and the red carpet arrivals of the NHL All-Star players, NHL Mascots™ and other special guests outside Enterprise Center on Friday, Jan. 24, the NHL and Enterprise announced today. The outdoor festivities will begin at 3:30 p.m. CT.
Since O.A.R.'s emergence in 1996, the Maryland quintet-Marc Roberge [lead vocals, rhythm guitar], Richard On [lead guitar, backing vocals], Chris Culos [drums], Benj Gershman [bass], and Jerry DePizzo [saxophone, guitar, backing vocals], along with Mikel Paris [keys, backing vocals, percussion] and Jon Lampley [trumpet, backing vocals] - have tirelessly delivered a signature brand of rock steeped in alternative scope, roots tradition, and pop ambition. Among many highlights, 2008's All Sides yielded the platinum single "Shattered" and debuted in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200, a space they continually occupied with King  and The Rockville LP . The band's latest album, The Mighty , was released on RED Music.
The Enterprise NHL® All-Star Friday Night concert and red carpet arrivals will occupy 14th and Market Streets. All fans will be required to go through metal detectors upon entry into the event area starting at 2:30 p.m. CT, and all bags will be subject to search. Fans can join the conversation via the official hashtag #NHLAllStarConcert.
