by Staff Writer / Dallas Stars

Join the Dallas Stars in the ultimate way to ring in the new year

The Dallas Stars have come together with WFAA-TV Channel 8, House of Blues, and American Airlines Center to produce what will become an annual tradition in North Texas for New Year’s Eve – Big D NYE, 2008!

Ring in the new year on Monday night, December 31 with concerts outside on the AT&T Plaza, as well as inside House of Blues. The Stars will be hosting the Nashville Predators that night in their annual game on New Year’s Eve (7:30 pm face-off). Big D NYE, 2008 will also feature the largest fireworks display in the city that night.

“We are very excited about Big D NYE, 2008, because it will be the place to be this New Year’s Eve,” said Geoff Moore, executive vice president of sales & marketing for the Dallas Stars. “Our traditional New Year’s Eve game has always been a big hit and has turned into an annual tradition for our fans. Now we’re very excited about being a part of an even bigger and better New Year’s Eve tradition with Big D NYE, 2008. It promises to be an absolute blast.”

The huge celebration will be anchored at Victory Park in AT&T Plaza, surrounded by gigantic video screens that rival those in Times Square. The mega screens will carry live feeds of activities and performances throughout the park as well as the countdown to New Years Eve that will kick-off the fireworks extravaganza.

Ongoing activities will include:

House of Blues will present country superstars Cross Canadian Ragweed on the main stage and local favorite Petty Theft from the Cambridge room beginning at 10:30 pm.

American Airlines Center will present up-and-coming Sony BMG recording artists “Jypsi” -- live on the AT&T Plaza starting at 6:30, and local party band “Top” following the Stars game. Events at AT&T Plaza are free.
